Watching TV Makes Us Smarter? Sign me up!

Read Watching TV Makes You Smarter on page 766 and do the questions on page 776 (there are 5 of them). In addition to blogging the questions, take a look at the classical model of organization on pages 13-17 of your book. Does Johnson follow that in this essay? If so, explain. If not, describe his structure and explain how he uses it to effectively make his argument.

Maybe watch some TV. After all, the AP test is coming up. ;)

TV Focus
For those of you who will be gone Thursday and Friday, or just those of you who like to do things ahead of time, read and blog the questions to the other 4 essays from page 777-787 for a total of 17 questions over the 4 essays.

We'll be watching Merchants of Cool on Friday. If we start right away, we should just finish. We'll discuss on Monday along with the essays you read from pages 777-787 (see above).

Yes there will be more timed write and multiple choice practice next week.
