Extension/ Homework: Students are asked to review and organize their notes (in whatever way they see fit) for tomorrow.
Activities (Day 2): At this point, students receive a writing prompt:
Write an introduction to a writing course that you will be teaching. In it, incorporate Rosenblatt’s discussion of the “basic human need” to write and tell stories. Use one quote from the essay that you recorded and as many of his points that you need to persuade students to enroll in your writing course. Your introduction should be between two and three paragraphs and should communicate the value of your course in helping students to fulfill a “basic human need.”
Students have the full class period to write using their notes from Day 1.
