Additional Reading (TBD)
Choose one of the three essays that weâ€™ve read this week and, in two paragraphs, discuss the following:
1. Identify a single phrase or sentence that you find particularly effective in the essayâ€™s attempt to describe something to you as a reader. Explain why, in detail, youâ€™ve chosen this particular example. In what sense is it effective? What response does it provoke? How does it accomplish this? You might consider things like specific word choices, placement in the context of the whole essay, tone, etc.
2. How would you describe the overall approach that this essay takes to the task of describing something? What is left out or not included in this description? Why do you think the author omits those things? What is included or highlighted that makes this description unique?FILLER TEXT
