And the rains came down . . .

What we did in class, today – Due to the weather, students were not required to swipe for attendance, per the CAS dean. Consequently, attendance was low, so students were allowed to work on their Achieve3000 readings, activities, and thought question. Also, students practiced “speed writing.”


  1. Go to your Achieve3000 inbox. Open the message I sent you on Oct. 25. Read “Don’t Pass the Salt” and complete the activity. Also, do the thought question. However, disregard the directions for the thought question. What I want you to do is write a one-paragraph summary of the article. Your paragraph must include at least three sentences. Be sure to use your own words. The activity and thought question must be completed before 11:55 p.m. on Friday, Oct. 30.
  2. Choose any other two Achieve3000 articles, read them, and complete the activities before 11:55 p.m. on Friday, Oct. 30.
  3. If you have not written the Thought Question for “How Much for a Glass of Water  or “Too Many Climbers,” complete them. I will deduct 10 marks for late work.
  4. If you have not submitted your process essay, bring your flash memory to me during my office hours so that I can upload it to Turnitin and mark it. Ten (10) marks will be deducted for late work.

What we will do in class on Monday, Nov. 2 – We will “speed write” the rough draft of the cause / effect essay that will be marked. Afterwards, we will revise and edit it.
