Taking Notes

Advice: Get some practice on taking notes for this class. First, refer to AndByNotesIMean

Then, take notes on these chapters for your use. Go to your wiki name page, get into the edit mode, then create a new wiki page by adding a page title. Call it NotesChap1And2 - followed by your 3 initials. NotesChap1And2MCM, for instance. When you save, the title will be an open link. Click it, and it should go to a text editing space Work with what you're reading in Longaker. Expect to refine these notes on our next meeting. Use headings to organize things. Add examples and cases, and problematic cases. Add links. Embed content images. ... Refer to GettingStarted for formatting and embedding images.

GPS2 Flyer, 20 Sep 2017. Presentational enthymeme. An example in shared values, again. Capped using the metaphor of a GPS. Logos at work in the divided arrow; the ethical argument is capped by the silhouette of the corporate tie.

Consideration of this poster as a presentational enthymeme will address the use of the superscript 2 in the title (ethos); the dotted wandering lines with arrows; the tension between the split arrow leading up and over, while the list reads down and to a definite ending point; the HUGE map-marker icons indicating workshop times; the non-parallel wording of the workshop topics.
