Section 6 (Thursday): Revision – Logical Flow of Ideas

What we did in class today  – Today, we revised our essay for logical flow: logical coherence and lexical coherence. I used the article“How Lipstick Is Made” to illustrate how to add more information and cite sources in the essay.

Homework

  1. Submit your revised essay to Turnitin no later than 11:59 p.m. on Sunday, October 23. Be sure that it is typed in the ENGL 100 Essay Template saved as your name – Process Essay, for example, Sarah – Process Essay. This activity will be marked using the descriptive process rubric so that you can see what your essay would have received out of 100 marks. However, the activity will only be worth 1 mark in the cumulative grade in SIS.
  2. Read Achieve3000 article Too Many Climbers”and complete the Activity and Thought Question (a one-paragraph summary of the article) before midnight on Friday, Oct. 21.  (This will be Thought Question 4.) Read two other Achieve3000 articles of your choice and complete the Activities for them before midnight on Friday, Oct. 21. (If you want to read extra articles, use the Achieve3000 search engine to locate other articles.)

Bonus Credit – Reading contest 2 – The contest covers the time period from Saturday, Oct 8, through Friday, Oct 21. This is for 0.5% extra credit. To receive credit, you must score 75 or above on Activities for 10 Achieve3000 articles. Only first attempt scores will count.

What we will do in class on Sunday, Oct 23 – We will practice “speed writing” so that we will be prepared for the midterm exam and the final exam.
