(1) Be in a group of 3-4. Ideally, these won’t just be the people you always work with. Move around. Each group will compose one response to this blog post before leaving class. This response should include detailed answers to one or two the italicized questions below. It also needs to include a response to part 4.
(2) Start acquainting yourselves with The Where, The Why, and The How. Take a look at the pdf and the color images posted to Courseweb. Read the introduction and at least one example closely. What do you notice stylistically? How the sentences work? Do you have a favorite—how does it work? What is most notable about the content of the piece(s) at hand? How do the texts and images work together and/or against each other?
(3) Take a look at the following NY Times pieces.
A Surgical Procedure’s Risks Go Unmentioned – How is the nature of the text here similar to the texts in The Where, The Why, and The How; how is it dissimilar? Take note of the style of the art – how does it work with and/or against the text? If you had to assign a question as the title for this piece, what might that question be?
Who Made That Corkscrew? – How is the nature of the text here similar to the texts in The Where, The Why, and The How; how is it dissimilar? How does the art work with and/or against the text?
*** (4) Look again at the WWH’s table of contents. What makes a good title question? Name at least 4 features. For each member of your group: come up with as many questions as possible. Aim for 7 or more each.
