Counterargument, refutation and conclusion

What we did in class, today – After discussing the reading technique of predicting logical sequence of ideas, students completed Final Exam Reading Practices 1 and 2. Then, we played Jeopardy to reinforce vocabulary. Congratulations to today’s winners: Hessah, Mai and Fatemah in Section 6 and Abdulaziz Al K., Fahad S. and Talal in Section 55. Finally, after we reviewed counterarguments, refutations and conclusions, students added these paragraphs to their rough drafts of Essay 5. Essay 5 is due in class on Wednesday, Dec. 3. Students will submit Essay 5 on their flash memories in class.
