Our group had a very productive meeting on the first floor of the Arrillaga Dining Hall. We talked about the pros and cons of structuring our essays by topic or chronologically. Another big topic was making a point or claim in all of our papers. Kaitlyn had already made some changes to her original draft, and she did a really good job of incorporating more description into her first few paragraphs. I realized that I needed to have a better hook in my opening paragraph, and to better tie my essay together. Jack did a good job of drawing in the reader through descriptive language, but wants to do a better job of structuring his essay. Overall, we had a great time, and got great feedback from each other!
SUGGESTIONS FOR WEEK 9
Integrate your source material, refine your argument, include your visual evidence, and move toward correct documentation style. Also, don’t forget to showcase YOUR argument, not just summarize all the research that you’ve done
Be sure to send me an email about your Writing Center appointment (when it was, who you talked with, what you talked about, how it went) – about 3-4 sentences – so you get credit. This is REQUIRED.
