unit 4 discussion 1: In this unit 4, you have learned about compare and contrast writing. For this discussion, you will read and respond to “Who Wants to Shop in a Big Box Store, Anyway?” who-wants-to-shop-in-a-big-box-store-anyway.
unit 4 discussion 2: Review at least TWO of your classmates’ drafts. Post your feedback by replying to your peers’ initial posts. Guidelines for Conducting the Peer Review: •Begin by reading the entire essay. •Next, begin editing the essay for the micro details as described below: ◦The micro details deal with the smaller scale issues (spelling, grammar, word choice, punctuation, etc.). If you notice any micro issues as you go through your peers’ drafts, please note them on the draft. •Lastly, work on revising the essay for the macro details as described below: ◦The macro issues deal with the large issues (content, fulfillment of purpose, addressing the appropriate audience, paragraph structure and cohesion, thesis statement and support, etc.). Usually, when a reader makes recommendations about macro issues, it means you will probably need to add content to your essay, delete content from your essay, move major chunks of the essay around, etc. To help you identify macro issues that may need some revision, I have supplied a set of questions you will need to answer for each of the two essays you review. (Please see below.)
