Class cancelled for 30 Aug

I have a family emergency and have to cancel our face to face class today.

If you haven't already, develop notes for chaps 1 and 2, to p 21. 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. I'll send out a reminder closer to time to develop notes.

We'll meet as scheduled next Tue 6 Sep to get started with chapters 1 and 2, and analyzing the rhetorical situation.
