What we did in class, today – Students volunteered for Literature Circle roles to discuss “E-Waste and E-Waste Recycling” (pp. 183-184 in the MySkillsLab e-reader) on Tuesday, Nov. 21. Because students were to have reviewed pp. 195-202 in the MySkillsLab e-reader before class today, we began our discussion of comparison and contrast paragraphs and essays, focusing on the following:
- Model comparison and contrast essay
- Language of comparison
- Structure of a point-by-point comparison and contrast essay
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 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%.
