More ideas for next semester. . .

Okay, here’s what I’m thinking for comp I now:

  1. Beginning with a question of the day to get them writing each class; after a couple of weeks, ask them to generate questions and I’ll pull them from a hat or something
  2. Journals I collect once a week (folders, not notebooks)
  3. Personal essay, with guided prompts
  4. Opinion piece, with guided prompts
  5. rhetorical analysis presentation using powerpoint or prezi (could collaborate in pairs?) OR place ethnography
  6. essay exam
  7. revision of earlier work into new genre

Comp II:

  1. Beginning with a question of the day to get them writing each class; after a couple of weeks, ask them to generate questions and I’ll pull them from a hat or something
  2. Journals I collect once a week (folders, not notebooks)
  3. place ethnography with at least one interview OR they research different grammar concerns and give handouts/presentations in groups. . .
  4. annotated bib/position paper
  5. argument essay
  6. writing collage OR revising earlier work
