Sunday: Revising essays

What we did in class, today – It was announced that the midterm essays have been marked. Students should click on the rubric icon to see the marks each part of their essays received. I strongly encouraged students to come for extra help for their writing. My office hours are 1:00-1:50 each weekday in W1-170. Students were asked to check their course grade in MyGUST.

Students viewed the Overview and Animations 1 and 2 for MySkillsLab R3.5. Then, they revised their midterm essay thesis and topic sentences. Next, they reviewed each topic sentence to ensure it was unified with the thesis. After that, they checked that each of their body paragraphs was unified.
