I want you to understand how the method of organization you choose changes the structure and the audience’s perception of your work.
Step 1: Read one of the following articles from the text
- Forget Prince Charming
- Japanese Tea Ceremony
- Science and Beauty
- Lord of the Geeks
Step 2: Using the sheet I gave you on Friday, identify the organizing principle of the essay you read. Provide 4-5 specific bits of evidence to support your claim.
Step 3: Choose another method of organization that might work for this essay. Create a rough 5-point structure for this “new” essay, making clear connections between your points and the method of organization. You are NOT writing the essay.
Step 4: I will put you in groups to discuss the essay you read. I’d like you to come to an agreement about the method of organization used by the author.
