2/4/13 Class Structure/Homework/Notes

Class Structure:

  • Freewrite–5 Minutes: Five minutes on memorable experiences from your childhood.
  • Small Group Activity (1): Discuss the reading (pg. 36-42) in Reading Rhetorically. What are the author’s main points?
  • Small Group Activity (2): Select a text from the table. Take note of the visual elements. What do they say about the text? Do they provide clues about the type of material? Do they assist in the navigation of the text itself? Record your observations about each text, and swap texts with a neighboring group after a few minutes, or when you’ve run out of things to say about a text.
