Welcome back everyone!
It was great to see you for our first class of the fall semester. I hope everyone had a great summer vacation, and that you're ready to work hard in OE2 this semester!
You'll have to keep a vocabulary notebook this semester. For our lesson next week, you need to organize your notebook into five sections:
a) SD vocab
b) Prez vocab
c) My Own vocab
Syllabus and Schedule:
We went through our course guides. This semester, you'll do three presentations. One is a "Opinion" presentation. This is similar to our discussions last semester. The other two are "Debate" presentations. For these, you will work with a partner.
Opinion Giving Review:
We had an opinion structure and expressions review activity. When you give your opinion, you need to include (a) your opinion; (b) a reason; and (c) examples.
You can review the slide presentation on the website in the Discussion Skills --> Lesson Materials.
You need to download the materials at the end of today's summary and complete all of the homework for next week's lessons. For the summary homework, download "Summary Topics." Choose one of these topics and write a summary.
