Read “Narrative Techniques” in this week’s readings to learn techniques and strategies writers use to create a vibrant scene. Then read and annotate the student sample narrative below for all of the narrative techniques.
Annotating a text is a vital literate practice for critical reading as it helps you achieve a deeper, more multifaceted, and purposeful understanding of a text. For example, this assignment asks you to annotate a text for the purpose of learning from the choices and techniques a writer made creating the text. Make all of the following annotations, including comments or thoughts you have about how the techniques are or are not effective and why and why you think the writer choose to use the techniques in these ways:
- Find and label where you believe the scene starts and ends. Remember that a scene takes place in real time.
- Label sensory details according to the sense in question: sight, hearing, smell, taste, touch. Label at least five sensory details (the same sense may be labeled multiple times if used in different areas).
- Label dialogue, either individual lines or blocks of conversation. Label dialogue that takes place in at least three different conversations.
- Label anything you think is the thoughts of the point of view character at the time. Think of dialogue within the mind of the character. Label at least three different areas where you see the thoughts of the point of view character.
- Label where you get a clear sense of how the character is feeling by naming the emotion. Label at least five places where you can label a clear and strong emotion that is conveyed.
Feel free to add any other annotations or comments you wish.

DUE DATE – 6 sept short stories are attached answer length – 500-600 words
I want you to close read your chosen short story and answer the 4 sets of questions above for your chosen short story.
- What is the book about as a whole? You must try to discover the leading theme of the book and how the author develops this theme in an orderly way… (Theme)
- What is being said in detail, and how? You must try to discover the main ideas, assertions, and arguments that constitute the author’s particular message.
- Is the book true, in whole or in part? You cannot answer this question until you have answered the first two. You must know what is being said before you can decide whether it is true or not. When you understand a book, however, you must make up your mind. Knowing the author’s mind is not enough.
- What of it? If the book has given you information, you must ask about its significance. Why does the author think it is essential to know these things? Is it necessary to you to know them?

Students will watch two films to help them understand the utility of case management services. Students must watch the films and engage in self-reflection and critical analysis of the issues presented throughout the films. Outside scholarly articles and the course texts must be cited. Use APA format and the follow the rubric posted on Blackboard. 3-4 pages. The films are:
The Waiting Room: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mzIin6OVoLU
Living in tents: for rent at https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07FDMQMDH
300 words. How do different women of color feminists use intersectional thinking about race/gender/sexuality/class in unique and similar ways to imagine and enact “radical” or “revolutionary” change? (Some ideas you might consider: Some authors use intersectionality to challenge binary thinking, the early women’s movement, and both mainstream feminism and race-based movements. How does consciousness raising around internalized oppression work to create radical or anti-racist consciousness? )
You must cite 3 different authors to compare and contrast from the list of authors
Resource 1: https://monthlyreview.org/2019/01/01/a-black-feminist-statement/
Resource 2: Collective Statement, Third World Woman 1977
Resource 3: Cheryl Clarke, “Lesbianism: An Act of Resistance,” (126-135) in TBCMB
For this week’s assignment you will write the Research Design section of your thesis. At this point you will have identified an appropriate research design as a result of writing your literature review and reading the material in this week’s lesson.
The following description for this section of your thesis is from the End of Program Manual (EOP):
Research Design/Methodology: Describes how the student will test the hypothesis and carry out his/her analysis. This section describes the data to be used to test the hypothesis, how the student will operationalize and collect data on his/her variables, and the analytic methods that to be used, noting potential biases and limitations to the research approach. It should include:
- identification and operationalization (measurement) of variables;
- a sampling plan (i.e., study population and sampling procedures, if appropriate);
- justification of case studies used;
- data collection/sources (secondary literature, archives, interviews, surveys, etc.);
- a summary of analysis procedures (pattern-matching, etc.); and
- the limitations of study and bias discussion.
- Scholarly and credible references should be used. A good rule of thumb is at least 2 scholarly sources per page of content.
- Type in Times New Roman, 12 point and double space.
- Students will follow the current APA Style as the sole citation and reference style used in written work submitted as part of coursework.
- Points will be deducted for the use of Wikipedia or encyclopedic type sources. It is highly advised to utilize books, peer-reviewed journals, articles, archived documents, etc.
- All submissions will be graded using the assignment rubric.
Discuss an event (something that happened to you) that had an effect on the person you are today. What was the event, why did it happen and how did it impact/change you? What did you learn from this experience? Please be detailed in your discussion and try to reach the 500-word requirement. You may go over 500 words. Remember that in writing a narrative the more you personalize it the more powerful it reads so use the pronoun I.
Composition Exercise Directions
I’ll score your composition exercise on a 4-point scale with a point for format, a point for content, a point for focus and a point for clarity.
For your two composition exercises please write:
1. (format) a 500-word composition. Use Courier New, 12-point font and double space and MLA style.
2. (content) Your composition needs a main idea and specific details that support your response to the topic. Support comes from examples from your life, stories or what you’ve read and researched.
3. (focus) Stay focused on the topic. Everything you write should have a connection to the topic and your ideas.
4. (clarity) When you proofread check for common errors like fragments, run-on’s, commonly confused words, tense shift, subject-verb disagreement, spelling, etc. Try to adhere to the KISS Principle. This means keep your sentences short and simple and divide your composition into short, easy to read paragraphs. For a 500-word composition you should have between six and eight paragraphs.
For this assignment, you will practice decision-making in the allocation of resources. Follow these guidelines:
1.) Read the Allocation Assignment Instructions
2.) Complete the activity and save your assignment as Allocation-your name
3.) Use the following formatting guidelines:
Use 12-point Times New Roman font
Use one-inch margins.
I have attached the allocation assignment instructions below
- Study the “Rogerian Argument Outline,” Rogerian Argument Thesis Statement,” and “Rogerian Argument Common Ground,”
- Study the document, “Annotated Rogerian Argument work Outline” to understand the structure of the Rogerian Argument and to learn what the focus of each paragraph should be.
- Follow the structure in the outline document and create an outline for your Rogerian argument work
- As part of the information you include for your Introduction Paragraph, write a complete thesis statement. Type the thesis in bold font to make it easy for your instructor to locate it.
- At a minimum, the body paragraph outlines should include complete topic sentences for each paragraph and two or three supporting statements with evidence from your research sources.
- When you get to the Compromise/Solution section (body paragraph 6 on the outline), take time to consider a compromise that allows both sides to achieve part of their goal, that is measurable and feasible, and that does not ask one side to simply change their minds. Then, use complete sentences to fully explain your proposed compromise/solution. Your compromise must be supported by evidence from your research. Appealing to logos can be a helpful tactic here.
- Finish the outline with a few notes on what you will include in the conclusion paragraph.

3 Discussion 200 words – rhetoric and theory
3 Discussion 200 words – rhetoric and theory
*****Answer premises with book reading (200 words!!!) ******
*Due Tuesday, Sept. 13 @10am!*
NOTE: This week’s Chapter Response is on chapter 4
Some guiding questions for you to consider as you are reading chapter 4:
–Considering the role of psychology in rhetoric, is creating understanding sufficient to say one has been rhetorically successful? Or must one create understanding and move people to action (i.e., move their will)?
–In terms of the “long debate,” >>(content attached under the name 1) does it make more sense to you to think of rhetoric as managerial–i.e. Campbell’s theory, at least according to Ehninger–or as a means of creating knowledge itself? Can these perspectives be reconciled?
–Do you agree with Perelman’s distinction between persuading the particular audience vs. convincing the universal audience? Why or why not?
