The plan for today is pretty packed…
FIRST–we need to catch up on what we didn’t have time for last week.
SECOND–we’ll talk real briefly about the Anne Lamott chapter you read for today
THIRD–we’ll use the genre samples you brought in to do some practice genre analysis. Here is the activity I’d like you to be working on:
- Pull out your Wayne Writer (or partner up with 1 or 2 people who have theirs)
- Open to page 71, box 2.1 (called “Guidelines for Analyzing Genres”)
- Starting with step # 2 (Identify the Scene, etc.) go through each bullet point, answering the questions for your genre sample that you brought in today. (again, you can do this solo, or in pairs or groups, if you’d like to all work on one sample together…that sometimes helps).
- If time allows, move on to steps # 3 and 4 on page 72.
FOURTH–we will end class with a little bit of brainstorming about Claims + Evidence, and writing Reflection Journal 1.
