Due: November 4
I did not put this assignment up in time to expect you to do more than review where we were last week, so here goes:
- Review your notes (re-read selections) on the first part of Haas. In particular, work to make sense of the “rhetorical frame” and “rhetorical reading” ideas, along with the so-called myth of the autonomous text.
- Re-read the last portion of Haas (73-79). Work to make sense of those four explanations Haas offers for Eliza’s development as a reader of biology. Be prepared to contribute meaningfully to a discussion of the explanations and to relate them back to the ideas about “rhetorical reading.”
