After next week, we will have completed all the requirements for the IE3 Core course, so we'll be able to have a few different types of lessons.
Book Report Review
After speed discussion, we complete three activities to help you improve writing a book report. For our first activity, we reviewed MLA referencing and then you complete the referencing for your own book report.
Next, we analyzed the structure of a sample book report answer. Remember that the most important point about writing a good essay answer is to have logical structure with reasons and examples to support your opinions.
Finally, we looked at some expressions you can use for writing about your literary terms. You then had a chance to discuss the literary terms in your own book with your partners.
Asking for and Giving Examples:
Before our discussions, we had a short activity on how to ask for and give examples. It's important to give detailed information when you give an opinion, so you can give examples to support it.
To ask for examples, you can use these questions:
1. Blog Comment #10
2. Discussion Preparation
3. Book Report #2
Blog Question #10:
Compared to IE Core 2, do you think your discussion skills have improved? Why or why not?
Which skills have been the most useful that you've learned this semester?
