our final

Final.  That word sounds so... well, final.

The truth is, learning's never over.  We're just going to take an hour at the end of the week to see what we've learned so far.

So: what have you learned so far?

Please comment to this post with something you think is worth remembering from this semester.  Also please note anything you'd like me to emphasize/explain during our in-class review conversation.

  6. Ethos: speaker's credibility
    Ad hominem: attacking a person instead of their argument
    Red herring: something intended to be misleading, distraction from what is important

  7. I believe something worth remembering are the modes of persuasion, Ethos, Pathos, and Logos. We should know all of these to properly persuade a person. It would also help us understand how others persuade each other as well and how it is used in real life.

  8. Extrinsic- ultimate sustainable resource; to do things you don't want to do, other people reward you for it

    Intrinsic- things done when no one is looking b/c you love to do them; discipline

    SUGGESTIONS FOR PROMPT WRITING:
    1. Breathe
    2. LOOK at key words in the prompt
    3. Do a Pre-write

  29. I think there should be a part in the final where the question is just "what did you learn in this class" i have never seen that question in a quiz, test or final even thought that should be the number 1 question because its not about what the teacher learned its about what we learned.
