We are collectively going to review some of the basics from 101 to ensure we are all on the same page-ish. Create a list of the 7-10 most important issues you remember from English 101. Take 3-5 of those and explain them in detail to an incoming English 101 student – preview it for someone who has never seen / heard of the concept before. This can include giving an example, demonstrating the technique, describing, using a metaphor to explain, using a short narrative from your experience to explain, etc. Be honest and feel free to think outside the box - don't tell me what you think I want to hear. Write a short paragraph per issue. Talk about what actually works / what actually helped you. If it's been awhile since you took English 101, choose techniques / issues applicable to good writing. As a minor assignment, this can be typed or handwritten in blue/black ink on spiral free note-book paper. Be prepared to turn this in at the beginning of the hour on Thursday 01/19/12.
