What we did in class, today – It was announced that students who write a response essay today, June 10, at 11:00-11:50 in N5-102 or at 12:00 to 1:00 in W4-203 after the Eid will have the lowest of the four response essay marks dropped. 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 today 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, today.
It was also announced that I will not hold my normal conference hour, today, due to the chance to write the extra response essay. Students were also reminded to review their marked Response Essay 2 and to look at their course grade in MyGUST.
Students took the Pearson Theme 1 Reading 1 Post-Test.

What we will do in class, Tuesday, (June 11) – We will practice cause and effect essays to prepare for the midterm on Thursday, June 13.
