Jo Ann Beard, author of “The Fourth State of Matter,” introduces a number of “storylines” into her essay. Note that she begins by talking about her dog, for instance; but this certainly isn’t an essay about a dog. For this week’s response, talk about the different storylines/subjects that Beard introduces in her essay. Why do you think she uses these intersecting storylines? How do they connect with one another and how do they contribute to the main idea/point of her essay? And what is the point of her essay, for that matter? What do you think she wants us to take away as readers? As always, feel free to discuss your own personal reactions to the reading as well.
As outlined in the course syllabus, your response should run between 600-900 words. ALL work submitted for this class, including the Short Responses, should be in MLA format. This means 12-point Times New Roman font, double-spaced, with 1″ vertical and horizontal margins.
These weekly worksheets are not “essays” and are not evaluated as such. In other words, I won’t be evaluating structure, grammar, etc. (although as general practice I expect you to proofread and correctly format your writing). Rather, I’ll simply be evaluating you based on the following:
Does your response meet the minimum word requirement?
Was your response submitted on time?
Does your response clearly indicate that you did the required reading/viewing/work?
Is your response truly thoughtful and does it demonstrate that you’ve attempted to respond in an insightful way?
If your response meets these criterluvia then you’ll receive full credit.
