What we did in class, today – We discussed that sentence variety is important because it makes our writing more interesting and, equally important, it demonstrates a higher level of writing, resulting in a higher mark. After reviewing and discussing pp. 1-10 in Sentence variety 1, students signed up for Turnitin.
Homework – Do activities 2 (p. 204) and 3 (p. 205) in the Better Sentence Variety handout I distributed in class. The homework is due at the beginning of the class on Thursday.
What we will do in class on Thursday, Dec. 30 – We will review the homework and use sentence variety in composing a paragraph in class to be submitted in class to Turnitin. Be sure to bring your laptop and flash memory to class.
