Have a safe weekend!

My thoughts are with you all this weekend.  Please be safe, and come back on Monday ready to discuss arguments!

I enjoyed listening to your "spiders" today.  Remember that, as writers, you want your reader to "see" only what you want them to "see."  Revision is a process of adding, subtracting, and moving around for clarity. 

If you missed class today, please make sure that you read the weekly syllabus and come to class prepared next week.  You can also do the revision exercise by clicking on the "show, don't tell" page under "course docs" on the Bb site.

Try working on your Google site in the next few days, too.  Don't forget about the tutorials under "Course info" and the written instructions on my Google site.  You can access that through the staff page on our Bb site.  Email me with any questions!

First Day!

I enjoyed meeting all of you today, and I look forward to working with you this semester.  I will post information from class and/or new information here from time to time, so check it out!  If you become a follower of this blog, you will be notified every time there is a new post.  Feel free to make comments and ask questions!

I will see all of you on Friday.  Don't forget to come to class with your textbook and your list of possible research topics, related to your career goal(s) and/or life goal(s).  You can always do some prewriting if you are having trouble coming up with ideas.   This is a great site  to try.  There are a lot of great resources at Purdue OWL besides prewriting techniques.  If you're a visual person, just type "thinking maps" into your browser and hit "images."  There are some great examples there, too. 

Remember, the first step to writing, and to enjoying writing, is becoming interested in your topic.  This is a skill that must be practiced!  Try to find something interesting in everything you have to do.  : )
