Blog Prompt and Videos

Hello alls,

You have a blog post due tonight at MIDNIGHT.  The prompt is to analyze the claims, reasons, and assumptions within your Opinion Editorial (as we did with a number of rhetorical situations in class today).  You can do this in any format you would like that is helpful to you (outline, paragraphs, whatever).

Also, I'm still waiting on two videos (Group 1:  Linking Marks and Group 3:  Enclosing Marks).  Get them to me asap!  Thanks!

Hello alls,

Welcome to Writing 150, Summer Term 2011.  I think we're going to have a great class this term...!  And without further ado, here is your blog prompt for tonight:

BLOG PROMPT:  Write a brief bio about yourself.  Who are you?  Where did you grow up?  What are you likes/dislikes?  What do you want to accomplish with your life?  What goals do you have?  What makes you an interesting person (you're all interesting)?  You don't have to answer every one of those questions, but thats the sort of think I want you to discuss.

Also, at the end of the post, tack on a *potential* topic and/or thesis you're formulating for your OpEd.  I want to get you thinking about it.

Looking forward to reading!
