Weeks 7 & 8 (Oct 5-18)

I’ve skimmed the Tutoring Writing papers and they are looking so good! I look forward to leaving some comments this week; thank you for the thoughtful approach to that assignment.

Here are our readings for the next two weeks with our same routine: read, quote gathering, workshop updates.

In a nutshell, these are our routines and assignments for weeks 7 & 8:

    • By Thursdays (or close to that day): 1) Readings in Perusall, 2) post quotes in Currents, 3) respond to your partner’s workshop update.
    • By Sundays: post and reflect on your workshops.

Week 7: Oct 5-11

By Thursday, Oct 8

  • photo of Elizabeth WardleRead and comment on Elizabeth Wardle’s “’Mutt Genres’ and the goal of FYC.” Comment in Perusall
  • Once you’ve read (our routine), you’ll do some Quote Gathering:
    • Select a memorable passage or two from the reading. Copy and paste this quote(s)/passage(s) into your Currents area. Then, write, type, or draw your response to what you read (in any length or form) OR write at least two discussion questions/conversation starters. Upload a picture of your drawing or write out your thoughts or questions under your quotes. Our goal is to keep track of the ideas you are reading, noticing patterns of ideas you may be drawn to as you complete the readings. Keeping track of the quotes and your initial thoughts will also help a lot when you go to write the What I Know So Far paper.
  • Comment on your partner’s workshop update. 

By Sunday, Oct 10:

  • Give us an update on your workshop. *NOTE: I made new categories in Currents so look for “Workshop Updates Week 7.”

Week 8: Oct 12-18

By Thursday, Oct 15:

  • Read and comment on Terese Thonus’ “Tutoring Multilingual Students: Shattering the Myths.” Comment in Perusall
  • Once you’ve read, you’ll do some Quote Gathering:
