This is my full photostory for those of you who didn't get to see it in class. As you all may know it was about the book The Daughters of Juarez and how after it's publication more people became aware of all the murders in Juarez and how that caused people from both Juarez and beyond to unite together and demand a stop to the murders and to seek justice for the victims' families.

Seems like it was only yesterday when we held our first day of class. On our first day Ms. Ramirez asked the class what were our expectations for this class. I personally never expected to be taken out of my comfort zone as I was many times by this class. It was not a bad thing at all it's just that in the past Enlglish classes to me meant simply reading books and writing book reports afterwards. Never did I expect to spend a whole semester studying in depth the definition of rhetoric an analyzation.

I learned a lot in this class that hopefully I will continue to apply to the rest of my college years. Everyone brought something special to the table, you can tell by all the different photo stories that were presented last Saturday, that also made the class unique. I hope everyone has a nice summer. Be safe!

Thank you for your comments on this class. I do hope that you can take this learning farther. Augustin, I would like for you to please insert into this blog a bit longer discussion on how your topic was rhetorical. Remember, your audience does not have the knowledge you do. Please edit it a bit more. Thanks, Mrs. R
