  • Queens College Professor Corey Frost ENGL 703 Response # 13 George Festin Lorenzo 5/23/2011 I am truly going to miss this class. I took four different graduate courses during the Spring of 2011 semester, and this was my favorite course, easily. I loved how, it didn’t seem like a class, but rather a big, friendly […]

    Queens College Professor Corey Frost ENGL 703 Response # 12 George Festin Lorenzo 5/12/2011 The idea of evaluating writing skill is arguably the most subjective in all of schooling. Who is say that one person’s writing skill would be worth a B at most and another person’s writing skill be worth an A? There are […]

    Queens College Professor Corey Frost ENGL 703 Response # 11 George Festin Lorenzo 5/4/2011 I found this to be one of the most interesting readings of this past semester because it deals with one of the most critical parts of English classes: revisions. I believe I mentioned this in my last blog post but I […]

  • Queens College Professor Corey Frost ENGL 703 Response # 10 George Festin Lorenzo 4/28/2011 Responding to a student’s writing is one of the most important parts of being a teacher because, to me, the feedback you give back will most likely dictate the future assignments and papers the student hands in, in the future. Nancy […]

  • Queens College Professor Corey Frost ENGL 703 Response # 9 George Festin Lorenzo 4/14/2011 The articles this past week were very interesting and the fact is, the usage of online writing is going up and things like blogs and wikis are becoming more popular everyday. The article by Anne Herrington and Charles Moran, “Challenges for […]

  • Queens College Professor Corey Frost ENGL 703 Response # 9 George Festin Lorenzo 4/6/2011 The readings this week was okay. Mike Rose’s Lives on the Boundary was the most interesting read of the two. I found it somewhat interesting in his viewpoints. One thing I found interesting doesn’t really have to do with actual basic […]

  • Queens College Professor Corey Frost ENGL 703 Response # 8 George Festin Lorenzo 3/30/2011 When I was looking over the syllabus at the beginning of the semester, this topic really appealed to me, and I’ve been looking forward to going over it since I read it. Plagiarism is a real problem and frankly, I don’t […]

  • Queens College Professor Corey Frost ENGL 703 Response # 7 George Festin Lorenzo 3/24/2011 This week’s reading by Rebecca Moore Howard, “Collaborative Pedagogy”, in A Guide to Composition Pedagogies was a very informative one, in which obviously, collaborative pedagogy was discussed. There were several aspects of this chapter that I would agree…[Read more]

    Queens College Professor Corey Frost ENGL 703 Response # 6 George Festin Lorenzo 3/17/2011 The two readings by David Bartholomae and Peter Elbow were very interesting in that they posed opposing views to one main cause, which would be students writing better. In Bartholomae’s text, Writing With Teachers: A Conversation with Peter Elbow, one of […]

  • Queens College Professor Corey Frost ENGL 703 Response # 5 George Festin Lorenzo 3/10/2011 David Bartholomae’s text, “Writing Assignments: Where Writing Begins”, was a fine read in that it spoke a lot about how students write and their habits that go along with it. Now, one part of the text that I found interesting was […]

    Queens College Professor Corey Frost ENGL 703 Response # 4 George Festin Lorenzo 3/03/2011 In Patrick Hartwell’s, Grammar, Grammars, and the Teaching of Grammar, the whole text itself rather stuck out to me and was a rather unique read. One aspect of the text that caught my eye was when Hartwell wrote, “Those of us […]

  • Queens College Professor Corey Frost ENGL 703 Response # 3 George Festin Lorenzo 2/24/2011 The methods to which teachers teach is integral to the whole process of Professors and the way their students are affected. Stanley Fish does a fine job explaining this in his text, What Should Colleges Teach. One aspect of Fish’s text […]

  • Professor, FYI the comments are being recorded by the website an hour fast. I put down my response at 8:52 AM but it is recorded as 9:52 AM. Thanks.

  • Queens College Professor Corey Frost ENGL 703 Response # 2 George Festin Lorenzo 2/17/2011 The two articles for these weeks readings are very interesting on the basis that they truly emphasize the importance of reading and the danger of not being literate. Deborah Brandt writes in her text, Literacy In American Lives, the seriousness of […]

  • Queens College Professor Corey Frost ENGL 703 Response # 1 George Festin Lorenzo 2/11/11 <—–I attempted to post this blog on this date, but the website was out of order. The two articles were very interesting reads, especially the Murray article. The class itself was very unique yesterday, being that most of us were teachers, […]

  • Queens College Professor Corey Frost ENGL 781 Response # 12 George Festin Lorenzo 12/9/2010 As a final reading to this class, Charles Bernstein’s Introduction was reread, to see if there are any differences between reading it in the beginning of the semester, and reading it now, the end of the semester. Honestly, I cannot really […]

  • Queens College Professor Corey Frost ENGL 781 Response # 11 George Festin Lorenzo 12/2/2010 In this semester’s final set of readings, an interesting topic is spun around and that is the idea of performance and their affect in recordings. A text by N. Katherine Hayles, entitled, Voices out of Bodies, Bodies out of Voices: Audiotape […]

  • BTW, I do not think this system incorporated the fact that DayLightSavings Time is over.

    I posted at 8:54 AM, not 9:54 AM, as my time may seem to indicate. I’m sure this applies to numerous classmates of mine. Thanks.

  • Queens College Professor Corey Frost ENGL 781 Response # 10 George Festin Lorenzo 11/11/2010 These sets of readings were quite interesting, especially when factoring in different aspects of people depending on the class they are a part of. Pierre Bourdieu makes an interesting claim when he writes, “scientific observation shows that cultural n…[Read more]

  • Queens College Professor Corey Frost ENGL 781 Response # 9 George Festin Lorenzo 11/4/2010 This week’s reading take the topic of spoken word, which includes performances such as slam poetry.
