Rhetoric & Comp – Tuesday, September 29th
The new usual – BEFORE class – sign into the padlet board and post a new reading post.
WRITE: Quickwrite #9 – Pick-a-Pic (you choose a picture from the selection on the PDF as inspiration for today’s write)
READ: Read Aloud – Anne Lamott’s “Sh**** First Drafts” from Bird by Bird
STUDY: A lesson in revision/college apps – 3 drafts of 1 app essay – we’ll use this Padlet board: Revision in Motion & talk about what revision IS and ISN’T.
ASSIGNMENT: Read the Scholarly Definitions of Rhetoric (print them out if you’d like/can). Make a notebook page of your 3 FAVORITE definitions listed – with brief explanations on why you chose these three – due by classtime on Thursday 10/1.
- Sent Mrs. C your “professional” email? (we did this last week)

- Taken a closer look at your college app essay and made initial revisons? (use your WRITE CLUB experience and/or feedback to drive it)
