English 2 W. 2/6

Hi there English 2 bloggers!

So you probably got the message I’m sick and won’t be in to class today. Sorry–I hate missing class but didn’t want to be sneezing, coughing, and blowing my nose on you.

The syllabus for today says, among other things, we were going to start the “ad campaigns”–a persuasive writing in class activity related to our theme of environment and using critical thinking. What I’m encouraging you to do today is to figure out:
–a specific environmental problem/s
–a specific solution
–a specific audience to convince
So not something big and vague like global warming but maybe an ad campagn to get college students to ride their bikes to campus once a week or whatever
You can work alone or with classmate/s. This will give us a head start for Monday’s class. You might even get a little research done on the subject.

Please blog to let me know which problem/solution you’re interested in, and who you want to work with.

READINGS: We’ll discuss the Chouinard reading on Monday. The reading by Gretel Erhlich “Santa Rosa” I passed out but the other reading by Brad Monsma I was to pass out today. So we will put both those readings off until Weds. Since you’re here, you might check out the link to Patagonia.

Bring the magazine ads on Monday.

Have a great rest of the week and I’ll see you next Monday. Since I don’t have everyone’s email, please share the info. I will post a version of this on the class blog.

best, gwendolyn

  1. Hi Gwen,

    I’m sorry to hear that your not feeling that great. Just drink lot’s of fluids and take an extra 500mg of vitamin C I did and it helped a great deal. Regarding our presentation I wanted to focus on the marine life and how we affect it. What do you think?
