11/8 Class

  • Announcements: Sign Up for Conferences if you haven’t


    Writing Prompt #11: Consider your project for unit three. Have you thought of the context of your presentation? Remember that you are constrained by the genre and topic you’ve chosen (you wouldn’t present a wordy brochure on pregnancy to a class of five year olds–no way you’d keep their attention). Now consider the persona you may have to embody as a result of this context, your genre, and your topic. How might this persona speak? How could you build the credibility necessary for this persona? How might you dress to better embody this persona? How is this persona different than your typical classroom persona and how might you account for these differences?
