    I hope sharing this paper gave you more opportunities to talk with your friend, Ce!

    Just one point about what you said at the end about grammar: Grammar is only important to serve our meaning and intention. In other words, grammar is not everything, but I want you to think about how the way we communicate often times is limited by the grammar…[Read more]

    I’m glad that this report made your brother happy (?), and he gets to take how much ever credit he wants! I hope working on this paper gave you at least a little bit of a new perspective as a gamer!

  • I can’t describe how I’m feeling reading your paper, Yalitza. What you have written here is everything I had hoped you would take away from the project, and I’m so happy to see that this project gave you that opportunity to understand, see, and listen to your aunt and her story in a different way. I was reminded me of myself as well as my mother’s…[Read more]

    I’m so glad to hear that interviewing different people has helped you to think about language, identity, and ideology! You’re so right that this is what makes Queens College such a unique and valuable place for learning. More often than not, we don’t think about how much our experience is shaped by interactions we have with others (as you have…[Read more]

    Tao, you did a good job of summarizing Flores’s argument, and you were able to pinpoint exactly how Flores made his argument. What is less clear however is what you mean by “a layer-clear framing.” I wish you had been able to explain more about that since this is an important element of this week’s blog entry.

    You’re right that Fung brothers are reaching out to different audiences, but this rhetoric itself is doing something, which seems to be less taken up in your post. So why is their rhetoric particularly meaningful (as the authors argue)? What does the authors’ analysis tell you about the way we understand rhetorical act? For instance, if the…[Read more]

  • What an interesting perspective. As a fellow Asian/Asian American/or whatever racialized way I’m categorized in this country, I hoped somebody would pick a point about identity of the rhetor and how that impacts […]

    This is a great analysis on Flores’s argumentation, Andrea. But I also want to push you a bit further about his use of framing of the original argument. How is the way he argues effective to those who abide by the “scientific research” (or this frame)?

    Yes, I see the contradiction of the assignment asking you to write about yourself, but in a particular way. The purpose of the assignment was to think about how you think about language and literacy and what have influenced you to think the way you do–after all, the focus of this class is language and literacies. I hope doing so has given you an…[Read more]

    I’ve just read your post after reading many others’ posts, and I’m left with this question: Why do we have so much anxiety about writing? (myself included) Does this have to do with the situation where we often associate writing with? (i.e., school, grades, teacher-student power difference, etc.) Is this about the way we think about writing (i.e.,…[Read more]

    Nice summary, Julian! And I also agree that her story really has a strong focus on her relationship, although she tells her story in a quite different way from how Tiffany Martínez does. Did you like the story?

  • Eunjeong Lee commented on the page, on the site Andrea 5 months ago

    Your writing process seems very similar to mine, except that I went through a lot more changes in my writing process and I need a lot more motivation and preparation to draft my writing. It is still extremely difficult for me to show my writing to others like you do. I just tell myself these days doing so is part of being a good writer, which…[Read more]

    Ha! It’s interesting to read that you thought the quotes were too much. Maybe this is something we should talk about tomorrow. If we know more of the context in which she wrote this, maybe we could better understand her choice?

  • Eunjeong Lee commented on the page, on the site eng110 5 months ago

    The examples you gave are excellent, Jeff. I wish you had shared them in the class! You’re so right about symbolic interactionism. The way we interact reflects what we value–either explicitly or implicitly, and this tells so much about our assumptions and where the discrimination often comes from. Excellent post!

  • Yes, this is THE point that McCulloch was trying to get at. And about Cardi B, SO ON POINT! Ugh, I just wish I had read this post earlier so I would have asked you to share this point with the class!

  • Isn’t her story such a great one? Although I don’t speak Spanish, her story really touched my heart. And with that, I felt like I was able to better understand what my husband and in-laws went through as they grew up in West Texas, somewhat similar situations like Martinez’s childhood. That’s what a good story does to people–so real, so personal,…[Read more]

    So you are saying depending on your audience, you have to be careful in your word choice? This is a great point! But also think about a professional context where you share many technical terms with your audience. Do you think that also affects the way you communicate then?

  • Eunjeong Lee commented on the page, on the site jrobengl110 5 months ago

    Yes, right? Like Jeff said, I love your point about knowing your audience better. Ultimately, they are the judge of your writing, and good writing starts from thinking about the audience, I think. But what about your identity as a writer? Would that also impact the way you use your language?

  • Your reading of Martínez and reflection on your own experience made me think about the term, minority. We often use that term to identify people who are really minoritized systematically, although like you said, the way we feel whether we are minority or not really depends on the context. In other words, it seems like you are trying to…[Read more]

    I absolutely agree with Jeff! Your post is so on point, Jerrell. I particularly find it really interesting that you looked at how she transformed her emotion into a seed for change. So maybe we should write more about what we are emotionally tied to?
