Bring to class: Bring any paper copies of materials related to your rhetorical analysis to hand in.  This may include:

  1. The version of your draft with my comments
  2. Your first pre-writing, if it isn’t online or if you haven’t turned it in already
  3. Your to-do list from conference (only the paper version if you have one)
  4. Any paper feedback that you received during the Monday peer review. (Please also make sure that any electronic feedback that you received from your peer review partners is uploaded to your Rhetorical analysis folder so I can give them credit for their work.)  Be sure that it’s labeled with their name so I know whose is whose.

T 10-18: NO CLASS – Assignment due

By noon on Tuesday, go to our Library Prep Google Doc and list a prospective research topic idea.  As you decide what topic to list, consider  the feasibility of the topic you’re suggesting (can you find sources on it?) and phrase your topic description in a way that would make it clear for a non-gaming audience (for instance, write out “downloadable content” instead of DLC or first-person shooter instead of FPS so that a general, non-gaming audience can understand).  This topic is still very provisional, so you will have the opportunity to change it.  Email me if you have any questions!
