want to work to train your body to do things while listening

writing is a physical act

“If you go into the mtns. with out your mind, you will die”

“come to college without your body, you’ll flunk”

body must be treated right as student

scholars take care of their body so the mind can do what it is supposed to do.

Friday 1:55 on campus, on your own, no one around, pen or pencil and notebook, no phone

Time on Task: If we set aside time,  we are most likely to finish tasks

take notes, draw pictures, write poetry

He wants to know what it’s like to be alone with our mind

Take the notes, write an essay

Scholars who are held early in college career to rigorous self-assessment, learn more

His goal is to get us to pay attention to our mind

“presentation copy” no final copy, all things can be reworked

One learning outcome of comp one: scholars understand the process

Text him, be honest when behind on work

write of the learnings of your mind, not just what we thought about

Precious says, “stay awake and focus”

pay attention to the noise invside your head, write it all down, only then will you know what to keep and what to throw away

The writings that make you go, “WOW!” those authors have gotten in touch with who they are as people

people become better writers when they write

Thinking is conversation, internalized

Writing is talking, visualized

Q: How long do you want it to be?

A: who is your audience and what do you want them to do?


Zack- “it’s all about the purpose”

always clarify who is your audience

You have to be responsible for your own production of knowledge

He pushes us because he understands the world we live in

conned into the idea that knowledge is out there

start writing and don’t stop

He had a student Jared that

“I reccomend you keep your pen moving”
popular technique of writing instructors
Writing is a shovel and you keep digging, not a report of the mind

1 writing is reporting
2 writing is exploring

Eli Rosenbaum “we are figuring out

Quotes are important and should act as evidence, not to supplement voice
