This week has been centered around the reading and some new handouts that were given to us.
The new handouts that we were given to us are various counter arguments that were made in response to Uncle Tom’s Cabin. The reason why we are looking at these is to see them as rhetorical acts, and to notice the rhetorical devices used. We will use them to help us write an upcoming essay.
A lot of time in class has been devoted to discussions about the book. The book has been very interesting thus far, and shows no sign of slowing down.
Next week, unfortunately, there will be a huge loss of class time. Reading for the week was assigned beforehand and there will be an in class essay on one of the days. Most of our class time will be given to other classes.
So I guess that’s pretty much it.
