Over the next few days, we will be looking again at this essay. I urge you to read it again before Monday. If you felt lost or like her argument was just that students don't get lame high school English books, you especially may want to read it again as it may take you some time to come to grips with her argument. On Monday, we will be working in groups on questions 1-3, and 5-10 of the Questions on Rhetoric and Style on page 100. This will also go on your blog.
