Day 2: Wednesday, June 22

All activities and readings should be completed by midnight EDT today. It's best to complete the readings and activities in the order listed because some activities depend on knowledge acquired in earlier steps.

Goals for Today

  • Read all and respond to some of the Introductions posted by your peers.
  • Join the shared Box folder for the course after receiving the invitation. Install the Box client for easy access if you haven't already.
  • Review the Resume Project Across Media project assignment.
  • Complete assigned readings and post your first Reading Response

Reading

Reading Response Prompt 1: After completing the readings for today, post one reading response to your blog that responds to these prompts:

  1. Identify and explain the four main components of the rhetorical situation; and
  2. Describe the rhetorical situation of a job application letter and resume using the concepts explained in Chapter 1, "Writing and Rhetoric in Context."

Tag your reading response with "reading response" and "rhetorical situation" (without the quotation marks and all in lowercase; separate tags with a comma). It's critical that you tag your reading responses properly or they will be overlooked and you won't receive credit.
