Class, Thurs, 4/16/2015


Share your 500-word piece for today with the person next to you. After you read your partner’s essay, jot down some thoughts in response to these three questions:

  • What would you like to know more about the primary text?
  • What would you like to know more about the secondary text?
  • What would you like to know more about how the author is trying to connect the two?

Return the piece with your comments to your partner. Chat for a bit about what you noticed or about any questions you might have.

  • Forwarding: Thinking with another text, borrowing and extending its ideas and keywords. “As the writer suggests . . .”
  • Countering: Thinking against another text, noticing problems and gaps. “Yes, but . . .”
