For Thursday's class session, you will turn in the final draft of your Rhetorical/Comparative Analysis. At the beginning of class, then, hand-in a stapled hard-copy of your essay. As mentioned in the assignment guidelines, it should be typed in 12-point, Times New Roman font; double-spaced with standard, one inch margins; and be four pages in length.
I would also like you to listen to the first segment of the RadioLab podcast titled "Memory and Forgetting" (Season 3, Episode 4):
Please listen to this podcast, but do not worry about taking notes. I would just like you familiarize yourself with the content. This opening segment is, approximately, 21 minutes long, so its shouldn't take too much of your time.
During our class session, we will re-listen to the episode and take notes on it. Specifically, I would like you to pay attention to the formal and rhetorical structure of the episode, the variety of languages employed by the different speakers, how many speakers articulate their thoughts, sound-editing and -effects, as well as any other technical or linguistic elements that stand out to you. After we actively re-listen to the episode, we will discuss as a group our thoughts on the program.
