Both sections discussed the results of diagnostic writing; commas with prepositional phrases, the provision of specific details, and over-reliance on the five-paragraph essay format were identified as concerns needing attention. Also discussed were the ideas of writing as inquiry and academic writing as the creation of new knowledge. Assignment sheets for the upcoming literacy narrative were distributed and reviewed.
Attendance in ENGL 1113.006 was taken informally due to attendance. Attendance in ENGL 1113.007 was taken through a brief writing assignment asking after initial thoughts of topics for the literacy narrative. Both classes received comment-bearing diagnostic essays.
