Rhetoric & Comp – Thursday, September 3rd
Today, we’ll start with thinking about education and its reliance on grading and ranking.
QW #2 – Points vs. Learning – YOUR thoughts on this video. Whatcha thinkin’ right now? (3 min. write)
Visit today’s Padlet Board with the code Mrs. C gives out and add your thoughts via post-it. Work on what YOU think, not what your friends post.
Read Like a Writer: Reread How I Became a Pirate (you’ll find a copy in your Drafts folder in Dropbox). Open the document in MSWord and use highlighters and commenting to point out what you notice about HOW THE TEXT WAS WRITTEN.
Notes: READ LIKE A WRITER – we’ll add these to our notebooks for reference. THEN – Go back to the How I Became a Pirate and using your RLaW notes, see what else you find.
