In the Lab

1.  Section 2: Work to be done--read all of the class essays (you can scan the ones you've read as a peer editor or that have been read completely in class) and write a main idea statement that captures all of them.

2.  Section 3:  What are two lessons you've learned from the stories?  Use excerpts from 1-2 stories to show how you learned these lessons.

3.  Section 4:  Write a list of "brief flashes" from 6-10 stories that you remember well after reading them.

All of these can be seen in Auster's intro, as well as Thomas Mott's and Robert Peal's examples.
