In addition to the same kind of reading you've been doing, it's time to start thinking about the writing.
- Choose the person you are going to write about for your portrait and brainstorm some ideas, images, and memories for this person. Just sit down for a few minutes and write down everything that comes to mind about this person. Do not discard anything that comes to mind; keep a record of it all at first.
- Download and print the three essays for Tuesday (Benson, Gropnik and Orlean); they are available on Blackboard (remember that I will print them for you if you come to me).
- Read the essays and post responses to them on your blog; remember that Reading Quiz #3 is on Tuesday.
- Bring the essays to class to help you during discussion.
