So, there’s this idea that when you read a text with a specific purpose, your experience of the text changes. For example, have you ever noticed the shopping cart in the header image I chose for our class website? Now that you are looking for the cart, you may be more likely to see it. You may feel differently about the photo. I don’t know, maybe you did notice the cart, and my point is lost. Regardless, I strongly recommend that you just reread with a pen in hand. I think you’ll find the essay will change yet again–and for the better.
