Sept. 6

Class Plans:

Journal Prompt: Steppingstones 

I. Chapter 8 Discussion

II. “To the Woman…” Discussion

III. Final Reading Planning

IV. Extra Author Sign Up


Homework: Read “How to Choose a Detail,” Mary Karr (handout) and “The long good-bye,” by Amanda Coyne (access in Library Databases (Academic Search Complete) to listen* or read); As you read or listen to Coyne’s piece, underline or write out the details that resonate with you. Then, write about an experience (like one of your  Steppingstones) and choose details like Karr advises. We will use this to practice a short peer review next time and you will turn it in.

*This version allows you to listen to the computer read to you. This is not the radio version discussed in class.
