Rhetoric & Comp – Thursday, November 19th


WRITE:  Quickwrite #22 – Watch the video below & react/respond/think in yournotebook for 3 minutes.  (Note:  It’s a student-made video about the fatigue of remote learning – not trying to upset anyone – reactions will vary.)

STUDY: Quick review of using quotes in your writing. Quoting & Citing Tips for Rhetorical Analysis

CREATE:  Taking our rap annotations to the next place – rhetorical analysis.  What you are essentially writing is an essay.  And essay, as a genre, takes the specific and makes it universal (hint: so do most of your rap/hip-hop songs).  Use the assignment sheet below and let’s get writing (time to write in breakout rooms).

DEADLINE:  WRITING 6 (rap rhetorical analysis) due anytime between Friday 11/20 and end of day Sunday 11/22

PAST DUE:  Digital Submission #2 w/ audio (was due 11/15 see past posts for details)

ONGOING:  Consider how you will use your feedback & commentary to revise your existing papers.

REMINDERS & UPDATES:  Don’t forget it’s not too late to complete writing that you skipped earlier in the semester.  Check out the page tabs at the top of the website to find RHETORIC & COMP – WRITING ASSIGNMENTS & RHETORIC & COMP – NOTEBOOK CHECKLIST.  Next weekend (Thanksgiving holiday) would be a great time to make sure your notebook entries are caught up.

UPCOMING:  Friday OFFICE HOURS & a Reading Rate Update Activity for attendance/check-in.  Next week – WRITE CLUB for your rap rhetorical analysis & a look at adding a “Work Cited” page.
