choose one of the following articles from your textbook to read:
GERALD GRAFF, “Hidden Intellectualism” [p. 264]
J.D VANCE “Hillbilly Elegy” [p. 251]
MICHAEL POLLAN, “Escape from the Western Diet” [p. 420]
As you read, annotate the article to indicate the different ways the author uses metacommentary. Use the templates on pg. 137-39 as your guide. For example, you may want to circle transitional phrases and write “trans” in the margins, put brackets around sentences that elaborate on earlier sentences and mark them “elab,” or underline sentences in which the author sums up what he or she has been saying, writing “sum” in the margins.
After reading and annotating the article, write a paragraph that addresses the following questions:
How does the author use metacommentary?
Does the author follow any of the templates provided in this book word for word?
Did you find any forms of metacommentary not discussed in this chapter? If so, can you identify them, name them, and perhaps devise templates based on them for use in your own writing?
How do you think the author’s use of metacommentary enhances (or harms) his or her writing?
Please use quotations from the article and your textbook to illustrate your claims, and include a works cited entry for the article you choose at the end of your document.
