  • TL;DR Summarization

    Posted by Laura McCracken on 3/7/2019 8:00:00 AM

    Review yesterday's class

    Excellent writing by Cheyenne Hutchinson on yesterday's lit assignment:
    Author's purpose: The author's purpose is to entertain the reader with stories of love and heartbreak. The main character is given jobs to break up with girls. He starts a business from it and causes the reader to wonder about what will happen next. Along the way, he learns what love feels like and why it's important.
     
    Central idea: Quintin is the Heartbreak Messenger, who is hired to break up with someone. In the first few chapters, Quintin breaks up with Marcus's girlfriend. He also breaks up with Justin's girlfriend as time goes on in the story.
     
    Theme: Love is difficult and hard to understand, just like girls. In the story, Quintin breaks up with many girls for money. He doesn't know what relationship love feels like and that caused difficulties for both him and Abby.
     
    Add these marks to proofreading pages:
       move text left (aka "tab left")
       move text right (aka "tab right")
       noodle/squiggle under a word to bold it
       stet = Latin steti "Let it stand" or "As you were"
     
    Proofreading practice
    Select at least 6 sentences on each side to proofread.
    Modification: select at least 3 sentences on each side.
     
    TLDR
    When you understand the main point,
    everything else makes sense and clicks into place. 
    If you don't understand the main points,
    all the details are just random.
     
    HW: Try TLDR throughout today and see what you think. :)
