I’ll be thinking of you on my way to Jacksonville tomorrow morning. While I’m gone, please read Margaret Talbot’s essay “Best in Class” (p. 113 in Language of Composition). I think you’ll find it interesting. Read it, and come to class Friday prepared to have a discussion on it.
Also, if you haven’t already done so, make sure you read the intro to chapter six in the Bedford Reader (pgs 185-191). That’s the chapter called “Example: Pointing to Instances.”
Finally, for Monday, read the introduction to chapter seven in the Bedford. That’s on Compare & Contrast, and runs from page 223 to 229.
See you Monday,
