Using one of the texts from Le Guin, Atwood, or Wolff, write a conversation that you have in response to that text. The conversation can be in a genre of your choosing, but you should be moving towards an academic tone with correct MLA citations in this assignment.
You must use evidence from the text to ask questions, define issues, question dilemmas, or pose alternatives. We’ll be focusing on skills of summarizing, paraphrasing, and quoting as we start to interact, interrogate, and investigate. The main focus of this conversation is that there is a clear asking and answering around the text and that a clear argument emerges even if it is implicit.
