Thanks for posting over the weekend even though I didn’t set a Criteria for Success up for you. You guys are TRULY independent readers and writers. I am very impressed! Tonight, after providing a brief summary of what you’ve read, please critique your author. You may choose to critique his/her writing style, character development, biases, themes, symbols, etc. Just show me that you have an opinion on what you’re reading. 🙂 Good luck!
2. Brief synopsis (synopsis is a great synonym for the word “summary”) of what you read this evening. (2-3 sentences)
3. Critique of the author/the text. (For example: Anne Lamott’s voice in this book is very informal and casual. Because she is writing about what it takes to be an author, I expected it to be very serious. However, she seems to prefer to keep things light and humorous. I appreciate this style. However, I am not convinced that it is effective for inspiring young writers to become authors.)
