Before You Post to Safer Saws
We blog to learn from one another. This course is conducted “in public” as it were to benefit every student with the opportunity to view, analyze, appreciate, learn from, even emulate the work of classmates.
Learn from hazelnutlatte!
I’ve given the Safer Saws assignment before, and I’ve seen dozens of responses to it.
Some try very hard to replicate the model I provided in the assignment. I respect and appreciate those, but I don’t really admire them.
Some ignore the instructions entirely and quote entire paragraphs instead of recognizing that virtually every phrase is comprised of claims, several claims. I truly don’t admire those.
Hazelnutlatte’s approach to the assignment is both responsive and unique. That’s so rare. The claims quotes are very brief, as they should be. The evaluations are perceptive, analytical, critical, a little sarcastic. (You don’t have to be sarcastic, but if it suits your writing persona, go for it!).
I won’t say more here now, but if you’re having any trouble figuring out what I really want from this assignment, follow this link before you post.
