Friday, 9/18

We started class by splitting up the independent novels into fourths and assigning due dates for the annotations for each fourth: - first fourth: 9/28 - second fourth: 10/6 - third fourth: 10/12 - finish the novel: 10/19 Next we began discussing appeals, of which students then looked for examples in the Steve Jobs speech from last week in groups. After reporting out and discussing Jobs’s use of appeals, we returned to the Lincoln prompt. Homework: write an essay analyzing Lincoln’s use of appeals in his second inaugural address (a simplified version of the accompanying prompt). Spend only 40 minutes writing this essay.
