The Joy of Syntax by June Casagrande

While I have spent a decent amount of time composing or finding writing prompts based on our course readings, I can’t possibly have exhausted ideas for such reading responses. For this option, use the assignment space to write your own reading response prompt — one that addresses any element of any of the readings, be that a response to a single reading or a broader, more reflective/retrospective response to the ideas we’ve been discussing since the beginning of the semester. And then, of course, write your response to your own prompt.
Among all of the chapters, articles, and books you have been working through in the course so far, which one(s) would you say have been most essential to either the course in general or to your specific experience as a writer? Explain. Which one(s) could or should be cut or replaced with something else next semester? Why?
If you’d like, use the assignment space to write a response to a past prompt that you didn’t choose for a past RR assignment. If this option interests you, please let me know by the end of Meeting 11 (June 25th) so I can go back and compile the past prompts from RRs 1-4 and include them here.

Your grade on this paper will consider the following:

____ (1) Does the paper clearly and thoroughly address one of the above prompts, even if such thoroughness requires you to exceed the minimum development requirement?

____ (2) Have you submitted the paper on time? Assignments will be accepted late, up to a point, but with a late penalty — NO EXCEPTIONS since you can also submit early if you wish — see below for more specifics;

_____ (3) Is the paper at least 500 words of text, not including the title, name information, and Works Cited page (but it can be more);

_____ (4) Does the paper illustrate a strong grasp of the grammar, punctuation, and spelling expectations of a 3000-level college course?

_____ (5) Is the paper formatted according to 8th edition MLA guidelines? This means checking your format in three places: the general paper format (e.g. header, title, spacing, font, etc.); in-text citations, which are expected for an assignment that makes reference to sources, as this one does; and a Works Cited list, which is required any time you have in-text citations. If you prefer to use APA or another style sheet, you may, but please identify which style you are using in a comment that accompanies this paper submission in D2L.
