Thursday: Pearson reading comprehension quiz and RW3.4 post-test

What we did in class, today – I announced that students who write a response essay on Monday, June 10, at 11:00-11:50 in N5-102 or at 12:00 to 1:00 in W4-203 will have the lowest of the four response essay marks dropped. (The date has been changed due to the Eid, next week.) However, students are not required to do this. I also explained that students who choose to write only the three response essays during regularly scheduled class time will not have the lowest mark of the three response essays dropped. The opportunity to write a fourth essay is a one time offer. Anyone not writing the response essay on June 10 at 11:00 in N5-102 or at 12:00 in W4-203 will not be given another chance to do so, regardless of the reason they do not come at 11:00 or 12:00 on June 10.

In addition, students took the RW3.4 post-test and the ‘Students Vulnerable to Computer Gaming Addiction’ reading comprehension test.


  • Go to Google Docs folder ENGL 100 Section 1 – Practice Response Essay 2 or ENGL 100 Sections 6 and 52 – Practice Response Essay 2 and write an essay in response to the writing prompt. There is no grade; it is just a practice. You can download your completed essay as a Word file to your USB and get feedback from Mrs. Salwa, Ms. Bushra or your instructor, next week.
  • Complete Pearson RW3.5 Overview and RW3.5 Animation before class on Sunday, June 2.

What we will do in class, Sunday, (June 2) – Students will complete Pearson RW3.5 Recall 1, RW3.5 Recall 2, and RW3.5 Write Drafting in class.
