Brainstorming Exercise, e.g., "Back of the Napkin" Assignment
First, please read over the Essay 2 guidelines. Choose a topic and decide on which essay(s)
you will be writing on. Then, please
write SOMETHING about your topic down on a piece of paper or a napkin and bring
it to class on Wednesday. You can write
many pages, a list, or just a short note, but please spend anywhere from a half
hour to an hour thinking about this. If
you prefer to bring in an audio file or video file of yourself talking about
your topic, that is also fine.
Second, please spend one-half hour writing about whether your would recommend this essay to someone to read. If yes, why? If no, why not? In the course of writing, please try to cite specific passages and quotes from the essay to explain why you feel it is or is not an important essay to read.
