Overview

It's the first week of the SECOND QUARTER! We are half way through the semester - this is just crazy!

This week, we are starting DGP (Daily Grammer Practice). This means we will study the sentence parts and words from one sentence each class period. This exercise will only take about 5 minutes per day. 

As well, we are going to do a short unit in visual argument using our rhetorical vocabulary and critical thinking skills. It should be a good time! 

Visual arguments tend to pull at our pathos - or sense of emotion. What is important in analyzing and evaluating visual argument is the ability to see both sides. At this point in your educational experience, you should be getting more familiar with this idea. As much as we want to promote our ideas and beliefs, we need to see both sides of argument to evaluate strengthsa and weaknesses in argument. 

It's a big task! We will see visual arguments that fail and those that provoke us to think. All good things!
