Section 6 (Thursday): Revision

What we did in class today  – Students revised Essay 2, paying particular attention to ensuring they had used sentences indicating cause and effect and the language of cause and effect. Afterwards, we discussed the importance of language in scoring the final exam. Students submitted their rough drafts of Essay 2 to Turnitin before the end of class.
