For the second paper, I’d like you to–mostly–write an essay on the topic of your choice (as long as you have a thesis and discuss/quote from at least one class reading). At the end, though, I’d like you to add a section on how and why you decided to use a certain mode (or combination of modes), or what modes you ended up seeing in operation once you looked back at what you had written. Basically, you want to explain your thought and writing processes here. What did choosing/using one or more mode end up doing for you as a writer? How did it help you to create the paper you wanted to write?
