Class Plan -- Unit One, Day 2

Assignment for Day 3

Reading - In PHG,77-9, 125-6 ("Collecting"); 99-109 ("Remembering"); In LL, Reginald Lockett, "How I Started Writing Poetry" (347-52).

Writing - Decide on one essay topic (one of the topics you wrote on for today in your journal) that you will use for your Personal Essay. With this topic in mind, try one collecting activity--anything but freewriting and looping (which we will practice next class)--to gather additional ideas for the Personal Essay. After collecting, get on the Web Forum (using the instructions handout I've given you) and write a first draft of your Personal Essay. (Spend about an hour writing your essay on the forum.)
