Adjustments: 11/19

For Monday, November 19:

  1. Continue working on Edelstein as necessary today. We will have to adjust the time spent on our collaborative work on his argument, so your baseline understanding—what you are able to answer accurately from that list of questions on rhetoric and style—is essential. You should continue to use Google Drive or to talk to each other through that original post on Edelstein.
  2. If you have not already done so, take your timed general arguments from my desk (the folders are labeled by period), finish typing, and share the work with me in Google Drive.
  3. If you have not already done so, finish the process for those general arguments that is outlined in this post. If you have finished this, recognize that you will need to revisit the Singer Solution arguments once I’ve shared some of your classmates’ exemplars with you.

We will study Dustin Rowles’ two arguments next, most likely, and you can look at those by loading the original post for this unit. I will take stock of where you are with Edelstein tomorrow, and then we will either begin studying Rowles, profanity, and the images and words that offend us; or we will work our way through Edelstein, paragraph by paragraph, so that you can practice rhetorical analysis in a way that helps you (instead of simply chopping the text up until it loses all magic and meaning).

If you are ready, you can load and read the two Dustin Rowles’ texts. Start with the assignment posted first; then read his response to Stephen King; then read his review of Captivity (the censored version first).
