Class began as scheduled at 0900 in PS 141. The class roster listed 27 students enrolled in the section, three having dropped and one having added since the last report. All attended, verified by a brief written exercise.
Class discussion reviewed questions from the previous class before treating the homework assignments due tonight and Wednesday night. It moved on to address forensic, epideictic, and deliberative rhetorics, as well as concerns of register. Student participation was reasonably good.
Students are reminded that the first homework assignment is due before 2359 today, with another due tomorrow before 2359. Materials and directions for the assignment are posted on D2L. The rubric that will be used to assess both assignments, as well as the third such assignment (appearing later in the term), is attached as the CEAT Reading Response Rubric.
