Transcript of Abstract Lecture Backgrounds
2) What is the writer’s thesis?
3) How does the writer go about arguing?
4) What is the writer’s attitude toward the subject?
5) Is there a perceivable order to the essay? Can we follow and describe that order?
6) Has the writer omitted any important details or arguments that would help us understand?
7) Do we get lost in any paragraphs?
8) Is there any cliché or jargon?
Spend 30 minutes on each paper. Read each paper aloud.
Do not just say, “Good job!” or “I like it.” or “It’s bad.”
Consider these questions:
Is there a perceivable order to the essay? Can we follow and describe that order?
Is the problem clear? Can you see it?
Does the information from other sources support the writer's opinion?
Are there any formatting or grammatical mistakes?
The Listening Game
Each time you enter the conversation,
please summarize the previous speaker.
Use this template:
"I hear you saying ... Is that correct?"
"If you can't explain it simply, you don't understand it well enough."
Why did we play the listening game?
What is your goal for today's workshop and how will you accomplish it?
"Mistakes are the portals of discovery."
Do you agree?
"Focus on comments about your purpose, audience, stance, thesis, and support. Leave any changes to sentences, words, punctuation, and format for later in the process; your revision of bigger-picture issues comes first" (Lunsford 79).
