Open your Commonplace book at edblogs.olemiss.edu. From the dashboard, click on “New Post.” Write a Unit Reflection post over the Analysis Essay project. Title your post “Genre Analysis Essay Unit Reflection.” Respond to the questions on this sheet that resonate with you, but feel free to move beyond these questions if there are other areas you’d like to talk about. Categorize the post as a unit reflection, then publish the post. The post should be a minimum of 500 words.
