What we did in class, today – It was announced that students will write in-class Essay 2 on Thursday. It will be a problem-solution essay. Consequently, students worked on a rough draft for a practice problem-solution essay based on ‘Mind Your Own Browser’ that must be submitted to MyGUST before midnight tomorrow, Dec. 11. In order to help improve ENGL 100 next semester, students took a confidential survey about Literature Circles. It was also stated that the dates of the exit reading and writing exams will be announced later this week.
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 bonus credit forms are due no later than Sunday, Dec. 17.
Homework – Finish your problem-solution rough draft and submit it to MyGUST before midnight tomorrow, Dec. 11.
What we will do in class on Tuesday, Dec. 12 – We will peer review each other’s practice problem-solution essays.
