I can't believe it's almost December! Just three more weeks before the holiday break!
Revising and Editing:
In today's class, we learned about revising and editing. When you revise, you correct the content and structure of your research paper. When you edit, you correct grammar and style mistakes.
You then have some time to work on your peer editing task. For this task, you will revise/edit your partner's concluding paragraph. You need to complete the following for this task:
In next week's class, you will give the original copies to your partner, and the copies to me. The worksheet is attached at the end of today's blog summary.
For our lesson on December 5 and 12, we will be having conferences. You will be able to discuss your first drafts with me in an individual meeting during class while other students revise/edit their drafts. Make sure you prepare your list of questions for me before our conferences.
I've attached our conference schedule and explanation about it at the end of today's blog summary.
For our conferences, we'll be in the computer room in Building 2 / Rm. 218. The room is a little difficult to find. When you enter building, turn left and go down the hall. At the end of the hall, turn left. The computer room is the last classroom on the left (across from the washrooms).
