The course is over for now, but the posts keep coming, intermittently.
Please read chapter 13 in Tufte on “Cohesion.” Process what she is trying to explain, then write a 5 to 7 sentence paragraph that demonstrates cohesion in your writing. Make your example interesting. Be prepared to discuss the decisions you made when writing and revising this piece. Computer printed please.
You will see that I have posted last year’s second exam for your reading pleasure.
Remember that our class is cancelled for Thursday, March 21st. Below are the assignments:
Homework assignment due Thursday, March 28th
