A discussion post
Read the excerpt from A Moveable Feast by Ernest Hemingway (at left under “Readings & Handouts” > “Readings” > “Non-fiction”). Then respond to the reading in a paragraph of at least 200 words. Choose one feature of the writing to focus on in your response (such as use of details, style techniques, wording or punctuation choices, etc; see the “discussion board directions” handout for more ideas). Consider why the writer made the choices that you see here: what might they have been trying to achieve? Use examples from the text to support your observations.
For full credit, please do the following:
Write at least 200 words and include the word count in your post (Pro tip: use the word count feature in Word or Google Docs).
Focus on one aspect of the writing and what you think the author was trying to achieve.
Avoid summarizing or making general comments about the reading; instead, analyze how the writing works.
Edit your work for clarity. Use quotation marks around any quotes borrowed from the text.
