What we did in class, today – Students were reminded that I had sent an e-mail earlier today explaining that the deadline for Skimming and Scanning Quizzes 1-4 had been extended until 11:55 p.m. tonight since six students were unable to access MyGUST. Students received their usernames and passwords for Achieve3000. I showed demonstrated how to complete an Achieve3000 reading assignment. Afterwards, students took the LevelSet diagnostic exam. Those students who completed it today earned 10 marks.
- Complete Skimming and Scanning Quizzes 1-4 before 11:55 p.m. tonight if you have not already done so. You may repeat any of the quizzes as many times as you wish before the deadline. Your highest score will be recorded.
- If you did not finish the Achieve3000 LevelSet diagnostic quiz before the end of class today, you must do so before 8:00 p.m. tonight.
- Go to your Achieve3000 inbox. I have sent you three articles to read: “Visiting a Volcano,” “The Only Place to Study,” and “Okapis Say ‘Cheese.'” Read the three articles and complete only the Activities before 11:55 p.m. on Friday, October 2. I will record your first attempt scores. If you did not earn at least 75 or above, then go to the inbox and click on any of the other articles there and complete their Activities. Please note that you will be unable to access your inbox until after you have completed the LevelSet diagnostic test.
What we will do in class on Wednesday, Sept 30 – We will write the body paragraphs and conclusion of our process essay. We will practice speed writing to prepare us for the midterm and final exam.
