Homework, due October 20

You will receive a handout via email on writing definitions. Read it, then answer this prompt in your homework book: 

What kinds of words should you define for your reader? Besides giving a dictionary definition (inadvisable), what are some other things you can say about the words in order to help readers understand what you mean by them? Try to describe at least three different ways that you can explain what you mean by the word or phrase you are defining.

Come to class with your top topic choice written down as one full sentence. This is not for points, but we will be using it in class.
