For your 6th Writing Exercise, listen to Episode #6 (“Reasonable Doubt”) of the podcast series MARED AND KAREN: THE WVU COED MURDERS.
Then, write a response to the episode. Your response can describe your thoughts about the episode, any ideas you may have about the case, anything from the episode that stood out to you, anything you’re having trouble understanding, etc.
On the week of April 6-9, you will use your Writing Exercise to generate discussion about the episode in an online discussion forum.
Your Writing Exercise should do more than just summarize the episode. What new thoughts, ideas, or questions can you add to our conversation about the episode in class?
Try to support your thoughts and ideas with evidence, instead of making unsupported assumptions.
