Tuesday (Sections 2, 6 & 7): Writing Practice 3

What we did in class, today – Students wrote in-class Writing Practice 3 in MySkillsLab. Students were instructed to copy and paste their essay into Writing Practice 3 in MyGUST after they had submitted it to MySkillsLab. Students who do not copy their essay into MyGUST will receive a 0. It was further explained that 5% or more of plagiarism would result in a 0 for the essay. Students were also asked to copy Writing Practice 2, A Learning Experience, into MyGUST as well. The deadline is tonight at 11:59 p.m.

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%.

Homework 

What we will do in class on Sunday, Dec. 3 – Students will write an essay in MySkillsLab Writing Practice 4, so they should be sure to bring their laptop, flash memory, and power cord.
