Academic Writing II – week 2, October 11th, 2013

Today’s class:
  1. Returned last week’s  freewriting. Reminder to keep them.
  2. Homework review: what are the main purposes of the first 4 essays in the textbook?  (1st is Explanation, 2nd & 4th are Exposition, all others are Discussions)
  3. H/O: Genres table
    1. What genres did you use in your freewriting last week? (Probably “recount” and “anecdote”.)
    2. Look at essay #2: what type? What purpose? What are the stages? Which paragraph represents stage 1 (phenomenon)? Stage 2?
    3. Look at essay#1: what type? (Read the highlighted sentences in each paragraph, then asked the question.)
