If you have any missing work for my class, please make sure to make it up by this Friday, so I have time to grade it and your final essays.

Revise your Paragraph #2 for Voices of Action to include a counterargument and a refutation of the argument.  Use one of the "Take-Aways" from Friday's Fishbowl.  Make sure you end you paragraph with a concluding statement about why your issue is the most important to NYers.

Remember to refute a counter claim correctly, you need to:  (1) Identify the Counterclaim, (2) Explain the reason why the counterclaim could be true, and then (3) either show that that reason is not true, or explain that that reason is still not as important as your reason for your issue.  

A good counterclaim refutation will include all three steps.

Please complete Field Notes #2.
This will need to be printed on Legal Sized Paper.

This means that you will need to go to the site you chose as the "heart of your neighborhood," where you did your first Field Notes, and write down descriptions that fit your unified idea.  Write descriptions that you could add to the collage poem you created this past week.  

I will be checking that the entire Field Notes (all rows, all columns) is complete when you come to class on Monday.

Please revise 4-5 of your best descriptions from Field Notes #1.  Revise to make sure your descriptions meet the criteria established in class for Writing 3E and make sure they use Active Language.

Please write your revisions on a colored piece of paper (as provided in class).  Make sure there is space between each description so you can cut the descriptions apart in class on Tuesday.
