Activity brief description: This activity, which is designed to provide a series of daily "meditations" on style that can stretch across the quarter, relies on the practice of imitatio, asking students to imitate different types of sentences and then apply that experimentation to their own writing practice.
Course: PWR 1/PWR 2
Activity Length & Schedule: 5 minutes a class, across the quarter
Activity details; See handout
Additional notes: This activity could also be adapted to a shorter activity for a single class instead of being stretched across the quarter.
