Sunday (Sections 2, 6 & 7): Writing Practice 4

What we did in class, today – Because of technical difficulties with MyGUST, it was announced that students would write Writing Practice 4 (Dress Codes) outside of class and that it would be due before class on Tuesday, Dec. 5. I distributed a handout with model sentences and language for argumentation. Students were assigned to read ‘Students Vulnerable to Computer Gaming Addiction’ (pp. 232-234 in MySkillsLab e-reader) before Tuesday, Dec. 5. We will discuss it and how to write a problem and solution essay on Tuesday. Then, we will write Writing Practice 5 in class on Thursday, Dec. 7. It was announced that students wanting to make up work should access assignments through the Learning Path in MySkillsLab. It was also announced that STUDENTS WHO HAVE NOT COPIED ALL THREE OF THEIR WRITING PRACTICES INTO MYGUST BY THURSDAY, DEC. 7, WILL RECEIVE A ‘0’.

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%.
