Here’s my list of updates for you, somewhat bulleted for readability’s sake:
-On the classroom situation: As luck would have it, turns out we were in the right place. The other class had it wrong. So plan on MWL 3118 being our regular Thursday classroom for the rest of the semester.
-Your literacy autoethnographies were a treat to read. Individually, each of you has something to offer. Take my advice on what you’re doing well; continue honing that. Take the improvement advice, too, and channel that into future assignments.
–Your homework for this weekend is to read several pieces: Chapter 2 in Aims of Argument, “How to Mark a Book” by Adler, p. 72-74 in the Student Guide, p. 4-11 in The Everyday writer, and one of the following, which you will also analyze for your first analysis paper: “PowerPoint is Evil,” “Facebook: Editing Myself,” ”The Struggle and The Tools,” ”Technology Transforms Day to Day,” or “In Using Technology for Politics.”
Have a spectacular weekend, and come to class prepared on Tuesday to begin our first major unit, starting with summary work.
