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.
