GA6: Writing About Texts (2016)

GA6: Questions and Thoughts About Summary Writing, Writing About Texts, and What We Are Reading

Please feel free to post your questions and Thoughts about Summary Writing, Writing About Texts, and What We Are Reading here.  We covered A LOT OF GROUND in today’s class, so I’m sure there is a lot to discuss.

If, along with your question, you can post examples from your writing related to specific issues you are having, this will give us something concrete to consider and will help further the discussion.

I’m hoping this discussion board can also be used as a place for talking about the essays we have read, questions you have about them, and ways in which you might respond to them.

I’m reposting the links to some handouts here.  You will also find these on our course web site and in my Open Access English Handbook.
