Rhetoric & Comp – Thursday, September 30th

Banned Books Week Video.

WRITE CLUB!! Follow the Write Club procedures Bless, Address, & Press for each group member’s paper. Be sure to give feedback through MSWord in the margins (not just in discussion) that looks for what’s good = ), asks readerly questions ?, and makes suggestions in the form of “what if…” or “maybe try…”

If you missed class, check the feedback your group members gave you and be sure to give them feedback too. (I put the workshop tips slides on GClassroom to help you).

And know it is always okay to go back and leave more comments later (within the next couple of days) if you need time to process or reread to give good commentary.

UPCOMING: Details on submitting a paper for teacher feedback – that’s next.
