Monday (Section 11): Practice for Essay 2

What we did in class, today – It was announced that students will write in-class Essay 2 on Wednesday. It will be a problem-solution essay worth five percent of the course grade. Consequently, students worked on a rough draft for a practice problem-solution essay based on ‘Mind Your Own Browser’ and then peer-reviewed their classmates’ essays. In order to help improve ENGL 100 next semester, students took a confidential survey about Literature Circles. 

Exit Exams – The exit exams have been tentatively scheduled for next week. The exit writing exam will be on Monday, Dec. 18, and the exit reading exam will be on Wednesday, Dec. 20.

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 Monday, Dec. 18.

Homework – Finish your problem-solution rough draft and submit it to MyGUST before midnight tomorrow, Dec. 11.

What we will do in class on Wednesday, Dec. 13 – After practicing for the reading exit exam, students will write in-class Essay 2, which is a problem-solution essay. Consequently, they must have their laptop, power cord, and flash memory with them. Essay 2 is worth five percent of the course grade.
