Today we continue learning
about the Analytical/Evaluative Response. We also introduce
the concept of "unpacking claims" which is an effective
development tool. As with the previous sessions, we also hold
students accountable for their reading of the newspaper by asking
them to bring in three clippings on issues they find provocative.
to Course Goals
We continue to expand
students' repertoires of responses and reinforce the importance
of focus and development .
