Welcome back Scrawl Nation! For this episode of Scrawl, we examined astrology and tarot cards.
You may be wondering what astrology and tarot cards have to do with peer tutoring. To answer that question, Brendan P, Kate H, and Kathryn T invited Lauri Dietz, Director of the University Center for Writing-based Learning and tarot cards extraordinaire, to talk about how peering into the future is directly related to agenda setting during Writing Center appointments. During the episode, they described how horoscopes and tarot cards attempt to predict what will happen, which is a form of predicting “next steps” while tutoring. They also analyzed the type of rhetorical devices that horoscopes use and why they tend to seem so unique, yet general.
Lastly, Lauri D. performed an on-air tarot card reading.
