Hello all,

Today we looked at the Flowers and Kartcheske article and conducted a full CHAT analysis on a chosen genreĀ described within the article. The aim was to get you aware of divergent thinking; in other words, how can we conduct research on a specific question when there are so many broad pieces to that question that need to be synthesized and understood? Or, how do we create a research question based on an incredible amount of available information? Each group did very well with the exercise: you asked the right questions and conducted relevant research online to assist with the CHAT analysis.

We then finished class by reviewing Unit 3. Remember to have ideas for what genres exist within your majors by Wednesday. Also, please remember to bring a draft of your resume to class on Wednesday.
