After addressing questions from the previous class meeting, discussion turned to historical and other patterns of argument, thence to what audiences expect from speakers and what speakers expect from audiences. Practice in being both speaker and audience was then offered in the form of a largely impromptu in-class speech.
Students were also reminded of upcoming assignments:
- Discussions, due online before 0059 on 12 March 2018
- Week 2 Homework, due online as a Word file before 0059 on 12 March 2018
- Week 2 Course Project Discussion, due online before 0059 on 12 March 2018 (remember that the class has but one group)
- Week 2 Presentation, due online before 0059 on 12 March 2018
Submission guidelines for the assignments are in the course shell.
The class met as scheduled, at 1800 in Room 108 of the San Antonio campus. The course roster listed seven students enrolled, unchanged from last week; three attended, assessed informally. Class participation was reasonably good. No students attended Monday office hours.
