I’d like to start by congratulating most of you on successfully submitting your first assignment! I want to remind a few others of the protocol. You all need to make sure you place the assignment into the folder you shared with me during the first two weeks of class. Once you’ve placed it in the folder that is all you need to do. Please do not share the individual file with me. Just put it in your folder and you’re all set. P.S. A few of you need to go in and rename your folders. Remember the name should be LastnameFirstInitial-ENGL 1102 (ex. SlaughterD-ENGL 1102). A few of you titled your folder some variation of English 1102 with no mention of your name. This makes it difficult for me to keep track of each person’s work. You do not need to create a new folder. Just rename the folder you shared with me already and it will update on my end.
This week we will start discussing how to remove fallacies from your work, as well as how to make sure you’re choosing the correct sources for an academic argument. On Wednesday, we will have our first out of class work day, which I will give more details about during Monday’s class.
For Monday’s class come prepared to discuss chapters 5 and 17-19 of Everything’s an Argument.
For Wednesday’s out of class assignment, you will need to read the following speeches:
“Inaugural Address” President Kennedy
“First Inaugural Address” President Obama
“Pearl Harbor Address to the Nation” Pres Roosevelt
“9/11 Address to the Nation” Pres GW Bush
More details on the assignment will be posted on Tuesday evening.
See you on Monday evening,
