Revisit your notes on active reading and understanding context and do your best to describe each of the three contexts we’ve discussed in class. 1) What is the immediate context for this essay? Where and when was it first published? Who wrote the essay, and what do you notice about the author’s bio? 2) What is the imposed context? What circumstances surround your personal reading experience? What is your purpose for reading this text? 3) Describe the internal context. What is the rhetorical situation? What is the scope? What is the “so what?”
Finally, please choose three unfamiliar words or references to gloss. Define or explain those terms in your blog.
