Here are this week's plans:
Monday: I will dial up to talk to Arnold and Callaway students about the Annotated Bibliography project that will be starting this week so they can use their work time wisely. Wallace's schedule has the class starting earlier than A/C so I will go over the same information with them at that time.
Discussion Board: Find a letter to the editor, editorial, or some other piece of opinion writing. North Platte Telegraph, Newsweek, ESPN magazine, Sports Illustrated, and many other options exist. Examine the proposal (like you did last week), but also evaluate the proposal for fallacies in arguments. Write a rebuttal to the editorial.
Tuesday: Finish discussion of Annotated Bibliography project, Discuss chapter 2 (active/passive reading) and why summary/response and annotated bibliography template are similar but different. Discuss Fallacy posters.
Assignment: Submit annotated bibliography topic ASAP. Read chapter 3 and assigned article. You need to write a summary/response for just the one article you're assigned.
Due: Chapter 3's summary/response article...also initial post of discussion board
Thursday: Finish discussing Chapter 3...some work time to get started on article #1 for annotated bibliography project
Discussion Board: respond to classmates' posts (at least 2)
Assignment: Article #1 for Annotated bibliography project due.
