Part 2: Talking in Terms of Discourse

28 Sep

From last week: Stadia as a measure in discourse. A paragraph can be seen as a unit of measure which is further divided into sentences. An indent, marginal mark, or blank line marks the stadia as distinct from one another. Cf bloc, as a collection of paragraphs.

5 Oct Reflection

No assigned readings for this week, although you might want to re-read or read more widely.

Develop 750 words or so in which you consider what we have done in this course so far: what you're dealing with, thinking about, reading further on, &c. Refer to readings we have done, conversations we have had, outside readings, perhaps experiences in your first-year class to help you articulate the issues you're encountering in composition theory. One caveat: Stay with the work and consideration in relation to first-year writing. And a second caveat: Stay dominantly with comp theory.

Email your consideration to everyone in class by Sunday evening, 4 Oct, so we can all review and consider responses for our class meeting on 5 Oct.
