Alternative Titles

posted: 12.18.06 by Barclay Barrios

In class, put students into groups and have them look at the section on titles in the handbook. Ask each group to propose an alternate title for the essay you’re currently working with. Use these to have a discussion about how the title the author did use relates to the essay as well as how the titles groups came up with relate to major ideas from the essay.
