From Analysis to Research…

This week we will wrap up our focus on analysis and move to research. Being able to analyze texts is important for writing a research paper, so don’t just ignore what we’ve covered up until this point.

On Tuesday, we will have peer review, so make sure you bring in enough copies of your essay for your group members. If you want me to look at a section of your essay, bring a copy for me as well. I will be sitting in on each group throughout the class period, in order to give feedback about general questions. Remember all essays are due in Dropbox by 11:59 pm on Friday, October 25th.

On Thursday, we are moving back to using Everyone’s an Author. We will focus on style, transferring your writing from social media to academic writing, and academic writing in general. Please come to class on Thursday prepared to discuss the following chapters of Everyone’s an Author— Chapter 26 ” What’s Your Style?,” Chapter 27 “Tweets to Reports,” and Chapter 28 “Meeting the Demands of Academic Writing.”

There is no required blog post for this week, so use the extra time to nail your analysis essays.

P.S. Here are the links I was talking about in the 5:30 class
