Tuesday (Sections 2, 6 & 7): Writing paragraphs

What we did in class, today – Today, we applied the different techniques to the handout of “Secrets for Surviving College and Improving Your Grades” (pp. 5-9 in the e-text In Concert). First, we reviewed The Process of Paragraph Writing. (This file is available in the Writing, Revising Editing Paragraphs folder in MyGUST under the week of Sept 24-28.) Then, in MySkillsLab, we completed the Ch. 1 Writing Paragraphs 1 exercise based on information contained in the PowerPoint “The Writing Process: Paragraphs.” (This file is available in the Writing, Revising and Editing Paragraphs folder in MyGUST under the week of September 24-28.)

Homework – In MySkillsLab, complete Ch. 1 Writing Paragraphs 2 and Ch. 1 Writing Paragraphs 3 before class on Thursday.

What we will do in class on Thursday, Sept. 28 – We work on expanding paragraphs into essays, so be sure to bring your laptop and flash memory. In addition, we will discuss how to avoid plagiarism.
