All Together, Now: Presentational Protocols


Crystal, Caitlin, Hend, and Brian will give a presentation on Scott McCloud's Understanding Comics. The rest of us will prepare for this workshop by continuing to read McCloud and apply the principles for multimedia composition he shares in Understanding Comics to our writing-in-wiki experiments. Prepare questions for the group, but be prepared to allocate your undivided attention to the presentation, first. After listening, tune your questions, and, thinking and performing rhetorically, adapt them to the timing, unfoldment, and overall effect of the group's presentation, with an ear towards fostering further whole-group discussion.


for guidance, consult "The Fundamentals of Dialogue."


Housekeeping: Wrapping up the Narrative/Remix/Peer-Calibrated-Grading Unit


Bundle your rhetorical performance (as discussed last week: opening gambit, remixes of peers, a fit-and-finished narrative, and, finally, a link to your peer-grading activity), and post it to this page:





Again: your portfolio is simply a wiki page that serves as a "coversheet" and guide to your overall rhetorical performance in Unit One. Be sure to include your grading efforts, as those responses provide opportunity to display a compressed measure of your response-ability, and will serve as an important index of your treatment of the exercise.

Scripts for the Week


For Trey's word choices today


1. building on previous blogs: trolling for definitional exergy with imagery. 500 words.


2. definition drafts due next week: establish word/technique quota


3. nestedness of wiki, recursivity: informal writing as review, re-tuning, like this:


First, read Danielou, A. (1995). Music and the power of sound. Rochester, VM: Inner Traditions.


a. cut:


passages from Danielou, previous handouts and texts, peer-work, i.e. assigned readings


b. mix:


make links, transcribe passages to the wiki.


c. connect:


write a summary, share a critique, offer a description, render an implicate connection explicate.


4. Determine presentation protocols for next week, and contribute to a "link pile," a prolepsis on class discussion
