Literature and Composition 4
Writing about an Annoyance
March 14, 2003
This week, we will discuss parts of modern living
that annoy us in the same way Andy Rooney is annoyed by his
difficulties in "Street Directions." For the break, students will
write a paragraph about an annoyance in their lives.
Discuss what annoys you most these days
(example: people who follow my car too closely on city streets).
Tell your fellow students an anecdote related to
an annoyance. Share your feelings and stories together on at least
four different annoyances.
Write your anecdote.
Introduce it with a good topic sentence and
general description of the thing that annoys you.
Conclude with a restatement of your annoyance.
Complete a 125 word paragraph on an annoyance.
Bring your homework to class on Friday, April 4
