QUESTIONS POSED PRIOR TO 2/3/14:
Please review our existing ENG 304_Document Analysis Worksheet. Then post a few sentences/paragraphs with suggestions for improvement. Are we asking the right questions? Once we agree as a group about what questions we need to ask of these documents, I’ll ask you to create an interactive poll for our site.
Professor KB: I think that it’s problematic to ask three things the author said that you think are important. In many cases we don’t know who the author is or the text was published without his/her knowledge. Perhaps we could include a “/printer” to that question to make it more clear?
Leah C: I think wrting a question to the writer/printer of this document and asking what this document “means to you” are both difficult questions to answer if the person analyzing the document has no context. I think it would be necessary to do a little background research on the impact (or lack of impact) on the society to accurately answer those questions.
