    This annotated assignment is one of my favorities for determining if students have become rhetorical readers. In this version, I ask students to provide an MLA citation, rhetorical precis, list of five (5) pviotal quotes, and list of five (5) context-driven questions. This assignment was done with Susan Bordo's "The Empire of Images in Our World of Bodies," which is an appendix to Gerald Graff's 1st edition of They Say/I Say.  239k v. 3 Jun 26, 2013, 9:51 AM Sherry Perdue
