Another thing we studied this week was the three writing moves: authorizing, illustrating, and extending. I thought it was intresting I was exercising these three moves while writing essays and presenting talks to the class. Personally I think that I need to hone extending because throughout all my other english classes, I have learned how to cite direct and indirect quotes in forms of writing. I noticed that when I am given a poem of the week essay, I have all these ideas jumbled in my mind of what the poem could be about but I can never pick just one topic to focus on. I always seem to spin the essay one way, one paragrapgh, then another way, in the next paragraph. Only through practicing the extending move more, will I make those nuances.
