JOURNAL #2 Empty
PostSubject: JOURNAL #2   JOURNAL #2 EmptySun Oct 28, 2012 1:56 pm


Read “What a Certain Visionary Once Said” by Tomson Highway. Answer the questions appropriately using no more than one short paragraph, or a sentence or two where possible.

1 What is the thesis of Highway’s essay? Is it explicit or implied? How does it relate to his specific purpose, if at all? What is his purpose?

2 Identify as specifically as you can the audience for this essay. Evidence?

3 Look carefully at the first paragraph. How is it organized?

4 What is the meaning of the final line?

5 Is this effective writing? Why or why not?

Note: Your answers do not have to be long. If you read the piece carefully and think through the questions you should be able to write answers that are brief and to the point.

Please do not allow anyone to copy the work you have done. You will end up sharing a mark.
