The first half of class:
- If you haven’t finished both summaries (in full paragraphs), work on them now.
- Once you have finished these, you may use the remaining time to read for your independent study
In the second half of class, I want you to experiment with persuasion. In a one page response explain whether or not you accept the central argument in the piece about Siri. To heighten the distinction between summary writing and persuasion, I’d like you to:
- state your opinion openly and directly, preferably with attitude (a step most of you will find exceedingly easy to complete)
- provide examples that connect to/support your opinion
- use personal pronouns
- use informal language
