4 November 2014: Strategy for reading

Kevin Cornett

4 November 2014

My strategy for our reading is:

  • to read in a comfortable and quiet place with good lighting, my living room.
  • to have some water nearby and a pad and pencil.
  • reading the intro paragraph, the conclusion, and the first and last sentences of the other paragraphs through out the reading.
  • annotate by using my pad and pencil simply by putting numbers in the margins and numbering my thoughts on the pad.

Thats my strategy for our reading and i think it will be a fairly good one.

WRITING ABOUT WRITING REFLECTION: 26 SEPTEMBER 2014

this book is pure evil and makes little ┬ásense until the last 2 pages we were asked to read made some sense summarizing what we read … at least i think it was summarizing it. the reading was awfully written and was barely understandable. it was written at a grade level well above 10th grade and was more like a doctorate degree level writing. so my whole group that showed up strongly disliked this reading and could make little to no sense of it.

MY CLASS NOTE: 22 SEPTEMBER 2014 PART 2

the same people were talking for most of the time. a lot of people were silent. Luke, James, Sam_, CJ, and Bean were the main talkers. pretty much everyone was silent. the conversation had started off with answering the questions but had evolved to many more clarifying statements and answers. it was a pretty strait forward discussion with relative simplicity. it was good discussion with good results, but more people should’ve spoke up. this discussion was more like a five person discussion with the rest of us observing and taking notes.

 

MY CLASS NOTE: 17 SEPTEMBER 2014

  • bullets
  • if you wait till the last moment you don’t have time to adapt.
  • all i was looking for was simply to take down what you wrote down
  • genre
  • 1st simply the practice that you get from blogging
  • 2nd i want you to be able to follow instructions specifically pay attention to details
  • language marginalizes and makes people feel small
  • just=limits
  • words are socially agreed upon for a particular way and purpose
  • words construct the world we live in.
  • language is the most powerful thing there is.
  • -this is quite possible cause nothing i made without words first.
  • we want you to make the world a better place
  • we are all full of contradictions
  • tone
  • -changes the way people interpret what is being said.
