Today in class we practiced evaluating a podcast using criteria we created together as a class. We then discussed what success meant in media and the language to discuss success in evaluative writing.

Week 10 Day 1


  • WTE – Draft 1
    • Due Wednesday
    • 200+ words, MLA format, printed and brought to class
    • Should include your introduction, thesis, and forecasting (and perhaps the first part of your first body paragraph)


Today in class we had our third quiz, practiced creating criteria for evaluation, and continued our study of the podcast genre.

Week 9 Day 2


  • Select one podcast walking tour about a place you would like to visit (or have already visited) to use with your evaluation essay
  • Listen to the selected podcast and be prepared to discuss it on Friday
