Colleen – very nicely organized and supported with relevant quotes from the article. I think this is also a great blend of your opinion and the author’s opinion. A few pointers as you move through the drafting process. -Remember that the citations should be in APA format instead of MLA. Refer to OWL Purdue if you need a refresher on how to format APA citations. Let me know if you need any pointers on where to find that guide on the OWL Purdue website. -I’d like to see a little more exploration of the rhetorical strategies that Chaisson is using to make her point. So, what about her article makes it convincing to you? What elements of ethos/logos/pathos is she using to sway the reader? What is she leaving out, if anything? Do you have any critiques of her style?
