PeerMark: Paper 2

What we did today – I announced that students would need to use the search option in Achieve3000 to locate the assigned article “Social Media Helps” and two other Achieve3000 articles to read and complete the activities for this week since no new articles have been sent to their Achieve3000 in-boxes by the company. They were asked to check that the articles they choose have activities. They are to write a one-paragraph summary of “Social Media Helps.” Students used PeerMark in Turnitin to give feedback to one of their peers.
