11/8 – 11/10

Tuesday was a day to focus on the GR. We read two articles and discussed how they use interviews in different ways. We also talked about intros, conclusions, and transitions in GR articles. For instance, Jillian uses italics to comment in-between interview sections, whereas Sanam embeds the interview into the narrative and paragraphs. Both use charts to help people understand what is going on in the article.

On Thursday, students chose their topics. Some groups are more confident than others with where they are going. One big thing that needs to be addressed is how to use first-person singular in this article and how to transition in specific conversation about specific group members. In other words, the actual writing of the thing, because it is so outside the box.
