Practicing for in-class, timed essay on Sunday, March 9

What we did in class, today – We practiced using writing each paragraph of a five-paragraph essay in five minutes or less. This technique helps students be able to write their essay on Sunday in approximately 25 minutes, leaving them an additional 25 minutes to revise, edit, and upload their completed essay. Furthermore, it prepares them for the final exam, which is a timed-writing exam.

Homework – Read at least three Empower3000 articles and complete the accompanying Activities before midnight on Friday, March 7.

Class video – See MyGUST for the link to today’s class video.

Attendance policy – Effective today, instructors cannot change a student from ‘absent’ to ‘present’ in SIS for any reason. This is a GUST policy, now.

Bonus credit – Students who score 75 or above on at least 10 Empower3000 Activities, starting today through March 14, will receive bonus credit.

What we will do in class on Sunday, March 9 – Students will write an in-class, timed essay, which must be submitted to Turnitin before the end of class. It is worth 5% of your course grade. Be sure to bring your laptop or iPad, the power cord, and a flash memory.
