List exact repetitions of words in the text and how many times it pops up, whatever repeats is what it is about 2. List strands of similar words (polite and courteous) 3. List pairs of binaries and the most important ones by organizing contrasts (open, closed or global, local) 4. Then choose one of the first three for each and expand upon it for a healthy paragraph and talk about the significance as a whole 5. Find anomalies, exceptions to the pattern or something that doesnt fit This method works as analysis of mental doodling The method is to induce you to pay more attention of the details Class notes for this Society constructs disability Wendell Society constructs gender Wendell Things to look for: o Language o Tone o Word Choice o Types of Evidence o Audience (abled bodied people about disability life and culture.)
