Day 18

English 75 Summer 2011 Day 18

  1. What do we do about the very long essay?
  2. Rough Drafts—groups of four.  Thick Skin.  Kind Honesty. (106)
  3. Number the paragraphs.
  4. First person—talk through your process with your readers—where are you in the rough draft and what do you need help with?
  5. Read the essay aloud—mark it as you go.
  6. Complete Peer Editing Worksheet—including brief outline on the back.
  7. Discuss as a group—with the author leading the others through the worksheet.
  8. Repeat.
  9. Hand in copy of rough drafts.
  10. We’ll work on works cited and transitions this week.  But if you’re in a hurry:
    1. Book
                                                               i.      The Hero’s Journey: A Guide to Literature and Life
                                                             ii.      Reg Harris and Susan Thompson
                                                            iii.      Harris Communication
                                                           iv.      Napa, California
                                                             v.      Copyright 2005
                                                           vi.      The Call
                                                          vii.      The Threshold (with guardians, helpers and mentor)
                                                        viii.      The Challenges
                                                           ix.      The Abyss
                                                             x.      The Revelation
                                                           xi.      The Atonement
                                                          xii.      The Return (with a Gift).
    1. NOTE: Some students have chosen to give all of the definitions up front-as a separate body paragraph just after the introduction.  Either way, the point is that the reader will not be familiar with the archetype and you’ll have to define each term so we can judge how well you fit the story into the definition.

Today in class we gave feedback on our essays. I believe it helped a lot to make an essay stronger.

I like the peer editing that we do in class on our rough drafts because it helps us understand how to correct our essays to make them better.
