How can we harness

the power of personal conversation?

The Power of Video

  • convey intended tone
  • show facial expressions
  • remind students that you are a real person!
  • say more in less time than typing
  • in-depth feedback

You have picked an interesting topic for this essay. To make the most of it, consider revising your thesis so that you are making a clear, focused point about the use of color.
When you have a solid thesis, sections should be revised to develop this point with convincing examples from the text.
Working on the thesis and examples will really help you improve the quality of this rough draft.
