Karlie’s Notes: Mon/Wed

Hi, students!

Today in class, we started out with a free write. Ideally, you will write 1 full page each time we do this as it will be beneficial to you down the road (you do have to fill up 50 pages of your notebooks with your own writing). So far we have been doing unprompted writing and that seems to be working well. Yay.

Second, I showed you where to find the 1-on-1 sign up sheet. At this point, I believe most of you have signed up for 1-on-1 meetings but if you haven’t, I encourage you to do so – after all, failing to meet with me will negatively impact your grade. As of today, I have opened additional slots (take advantage of this while you can – I will be much stricter in the future).

As you know, all of our work so far has been geared toward developing a clear understanding of genre studies. In turn, you have been working in groups and analyzing genres. So far, it seems to me like you have a pretty good understanding of the following terms:

Genre
Genre Conventions/Features
Genre Analysis
Literate Activity
Antecedent Knowledge

Note: If needed, you can find comprehensive definitions for these terms here.

Don’t hesitate to e-mail me if you have any questions or concerns.

Until next time!

IMPORTANT NOTE FOR WED. STUDENTS: We will not be meeting as a class this week. I sent an e-mail about it. Make sure you check it.
