Close Reading

Now that we've discussed the Close Reading essay, pick which reading you're going to analyze for Friday's class in the library (L-218). Also, read Chapter 12 "What's Motivating This Writer?" in They Say / I Say. On the blog, answer Graff and Birkenstein's questions on interrogating readings about your chosen reading:
What other argument(s) is the writer responding to? Is the writer disagreeing or agreeing with something, and if so what? What is motivating the writer's argument? Are there other ideas that you have encountered in this class or elsewhere that might be pertinent? (145-146)
You should also choose which reference you're going to be researching, as we'll begin this research in the library (L-218) on Friday!

Questions? Quibbles? Controversies?
