After this first reading assignment, a typical reading assignment will simply have a list of readings without any additional work needing to be completed. For this first reading assignment, though, I would like you write one paragraph. In The Craft of Research  read ALL of chapter 2 (Connecting with your Reader) and for A Pocket Guide to Public Speaking read pages 36-46 (Analyzing the Audience), and then write your one paragraph (no more than 4 sentences please) about how writing and speaking are different or similar. Tell me your opinion and demonstrate that you read the books. This assignment is due at the beginning of class Thursday September 12th. Please turn in a paper copy that is double spaced with 12 point, times new roman font. I will not except emailed assignments.
