Argument: Today you turned in your final arguments, and we set our order:

May 16: Coe, Hall, Aloi, Hill, Sweitzer

May 18: Kashuba, Koscinski, Starr, Hamilton, LeRoy

May 23: Hulick, Bett, Trodden, Denny, Cianfarano

We tried to simulate what it will be like writing/responding on a deadline by taking 30 minutes to analyze and respond to this argument from The Washington Post.

Remember: come prepared! Even if you don’t use most, or any, of the stuff you bring, you’ll feel better. And if this week has taught us anything, it is that you should NOT DEPEND ON THE INTERNET.

Adaptation: Today we had presentations from Sam and Sarah. Nice job, both of you.

Reminder that we will have three presentations both on Tuesday and Thursday, so it’s important to be on time. Take care of what you need to take care of (restroom, etc.) BEFORE we come upstairs, as we’ll be starting right away.

Siren: Interviews for next year’s staff/May stuff.

Daily Prompt: Your in-class activity was to complete the Venn diagrams in whatever way you chose.

Publishing: Worked on BatCat business. Thank you for your efforts – we are making good time still.

Comedy: We watched your mockumentaries, fought about demographics (???? Again????), and I don’t know, it was kind of weird. Nice job!

Survey: CNF: Today I collected your what if essays, and we shared some highlights.

I gave back your name moments, and we tried illustrating them, by thinking of them as scenes/shots from a film. I want you to turn these illustrations in Tuesday. Remember: it’s not about your artistic ability — it’s about thinking visually.

Also remember: upcoming deadlines:

May 18: Goodman revision or name essay due (your choice)

May 23: Goodman revision or name essay due (your choice)
