SPECIAL CLASS ASSIGNMENT FOR MONDAY, NOVEMBER 27th

Family Concept Challenge (in lieu of class on Monday): This family challenge represents the most common mechanical mistakes represented in your work.

1. Get in your families.

2. Your family will receive an “error” from the ancient art of Rho-Sham-Beau Circle of Death.

3. Research the term. Understand what the error is, provide the class with advice on how to avoid or fix the error moving forward.

In other words, for each device, you must:
a. Define each. Show us how we are making the mistake. Do this with some type of visual aid (power point, web site, etc).

b. How will we remember to edit out these mistakes on our own?

c. Describe how each might also be done better or fixed in our writing?

d. The class will be quizzed on the errors included in this presentation. Besides the quiz grades, each family will receive a grade for how well the

You will be graded on the following: 

  1. How well do you understand the problem?
  2. How well did you communicate that understanding (does the class understand?)?
  3. How good was your visual representation of the problem?
  4. How good is your information?
  5. Did your presentation include each family member equally?

The problems to chose from: 

  1. hasty generalizations (overall fallacy of argument logic) (Connect Four & Writer’s Block)
  2. misplaced modifiers (sentence structure issue) (Undecided) 
  3. passive/active voice (sentence structure voice not narrative voice) (Dinglebirds & Indecisive) 
  4. perspective shifts (think: pronoun use in the essays) (Gucci & Brick Squad) 
  5. verb tense shifts (STILL THINKING & Double Stuffed)
  6. ad hominem (Poe & Grammar Ospreys)

Presentations will take place on Wednesday, November 29, 2017
