I can't believe we're having such wonderful weather this week. I thought it was supposed to be the rainy season!
Peer Editing Discussions:
In the first part of our lesson, you discussed your peer editing activities with your partner. When you edit/revise your conclusion, you can use your partner's comments. Also, check corrections I've made in your essay. You may have made the same errors in your conclusion.
For the remaining class time, everyone got a chance to meet with me to ask me questions about their first drafts. Fortunately, there was enough time to talk with everyone!
In one of today's discussion, one group leader talked about breast cancer. As promised, here is more information about how you prevent this disease. Make sure talk to your mothers, sisters, aunts and girlfriends about this, especially since there is not a lot of social awareness in Japanese society.
Wizard of Oz Reading:
For the rest of our lesson starting from next week, we'll be learning about literary terms and how to prepare a book report. We are going to use The Wizard of Oz to help us understanding literary terms.
For our June 12 lesson, you need to read chapters 1-2; for our June 19 lesson, you need to read chapters 3-6.
The reading material is available in the IE3 Core Course Information section. They are also available at the end of today's summary. Make sure you download the readings, complete the required reading, and bring them to our lessons.
