How can we share these?
- optional submission; share to soundcloud to class account to make public, or submit to box to keep it condensed to class sharing
- Soundcloud works like our blog. It cannot be found unless it is searched (which people outside of class most likely won’t do), and it cannot be downloaded.
- Due Thursday!
No further feedback unless you ask for it
Soundcloud tutorial Tuesday.
Partner share of intro/outro
- Does the intro include info about piece
- Does conclusion wrap up?
On the rubric A and B column talk about being thought provoking and signals and end to the piece.
-Cate read her intro, using a surname:
Cultural norms are the shared expectations and rules that guide behavior within society. These norms vary depending on your geographical location. They exist in small groups, and also exist on a wide scale. In this essay, Amelia Pond explores her experience both coinciding with cultural norms, but also rejecting them when she sees fit.
Troi Genders is a junior at Ball State University studying Secondary English Education. Troi hopes to teach her future students to embrace change and allow it to become a positive aspect of their lives. You can follow her on twitter @MissGendersBSU. Next time on This I Believe, a young woman explains how smashed bananas are a metaphor for breaking cultural norms.
****Make sure your intro introduces you, tells the listener about you, grabs the audience’s attention, and flows into your piece.
****Make sure your outro tells the listener that they are finished with the piece, re-introduce yourself and conclude with info about you or how to find more TIB.
