Monday, January 4th

Welcome back for 2016!  There are only 3 weeks of classes left before end of semester exams & projects.  Let’s keep up the momentum until the end.

English 421:

  • Introduction to persuasive rant assignment, due Monday, January 11th.  See details on the English 421 page.
  • Practice socratic seminars today on two of Rick Mercer’s rants.  They did not yield as meaningful conversation as I had hoped, but students are getting more comfortable with the process.  We will practice again Friday before we have a graded one next week.

English 431:

  • Students were expected to read to the end of chapter 11 in our novel Shattered, and write a short entry on what happens between Sarge and Ian in this chapter and a trait revealed about each of their personalities.
  • They spent time working on their Rwandan genocide posters – see details on the English 431 page.
