Skimming and scanning

What we did in class, today – We reviewed how to use skimming and scanning on the final exam. The article used for the exercise – “What Behind This Door?” – counts as one of the three Achieve3000 articles that must be completed before midnight on Friday, Feb. 6. Then, we reviewed problem areas for the rough drafts submitted last week; afterwards, students finished writing the rough draft of Essay 1, including the conclusion, and submitted it to Turnitin.

Homework

  1. If you did not finish your rough draft of Essay 1, do so and submit it to Turnitin before 5 p.m. tomorrow, Feb. 3.
  2. Read at least three Achieve3000 articles and do the corresponding activities before midnight on Friday, Feb. 6. If you did not do three last week, make up the difference this week.

What we will do in class on Wednesday, Feb. 4 – We will revise and edit Essay 1 and submit it to Turnitin before the end of class. (Be sure to bring your flash memory. We will work on our reading skills, afterwards.
