Monday (Section 11): Revision of effect essay

What we did in class, today – After reviewing how to write an introduction for a cause or effect essay and logical flow of ideas, students revised their effect essay introduction. Thanks go to Sarah F. in Section 6 for allowing us to use her introduction as a model introduction.

Students were asked to review the development of an effect body paragraph. They were asked to revise all five paragraphs of their essay and bring a copy of it to class on Wednesday for peer-editing.

Bonus credit opportunities

  • It was announced that students can earn up to five percent bonus credit for going 10 times to the English Department’s Writing Lab (first floor in the library) for tutoring. They must take the bonus credit form with them, but only a TA (either Ms. Bushra or Ms. Fajer) may tutor them for bonus credit.
  • The English Department will host Musical Poetry on Monday, Dec. 4, at 12:30. Students who attend, stay for the entire performance, and write a paragraph explaining which poem was their favorite and why will receive 1/2 percent bonus credit. Students who perform will receive 2%.
