Question description

There are 3 examples in the file

Please give a brief summary of what you believe each author is saying (remember the back of the stamp exercise).

As a guide, your posting should be roughly 300 words.

Read the pieces by Lanham, Elbow, and Halasek.

Lanham’s Domain of Style discusses what role style plays during the writing process. His thesis serves as the major theme of our entire study on writing this semester. When you understand what Lanham is saying about style, you’ll grasp, then, how we’re going to walk through each of the units this semester by focusing on particular tools. Elbow lays out his suggestions and thesis with an emphasis on the writing process, and what steps should be taken to produce optimal work. Finally, Halasek discusses the principle that, unless we’re writing for ourselves, we need to be thinking of our audience in several ways in order to be successful, and ultimately, persuasive.

After you’ve read the pieces, I’d like you to begin to “unpack” these authors together. The point is not that I think you need to have all the answers, but instead, that it’s going to take the entire class to figure out what these seminal authors are saying.

begin a thread wherein you add: (1) what you think each of the three authors is saying (use your lessons from the “back of the stamp” assignment to keep your summary simple, but complete; (2) then proceed to share with one another how the authors are similar and also different from one another.
