We work shopped our introduction paragraphs today in class in small groups, paying close attention to how our flash point is used, the flow into introducing our topic/globalization and the construction of our initial claim. We also worked to remove any intial bias on our side (judgmental language can come later :)). I also pointed you to pgs. 226-229 in the chapter from yesterday’s reading that discusses other options for creating introduction paragraphs if you were not yet happy with yours at the time being. I checked your paragraphs in for points.
We will be in the innovation center tomorrow working on a citations handout and then spending time on our essays. The first full draft of your essay is due next Wednesday (5/6).
Homework for Friday: Stephen Duncombe’s Cultural Resistance Reader (read and annotate as needed).
