DAY TWO Janet Phillips Developmental English

Sacred Writing Time Did you come to class with an idea to write about? As soon as class starts, quietly make that pencil dance!:

Sacred Writing Time Did you come to class with an idea to write about? As soon as class starts, quietly make that pencil dance! It’s January 24. Today is “ National Compliment Day .” What compliment would you most like to receive? Trivial Fact of the Day : A snail can sleep for three years. What would you miss most if you started sleeping for three straight years…starting tomorrow? Interesting Quote of the Day : “Only surround yourself with people who will lift you higher.” --Oprah Winfrey (American TV personality) Vocabulary Word of the Day : abase (verb) – this action word means to humiliate or degrade. Bullies—unfortunately—think it’s okay to abase their victims? Who else thinks it’s okay to abase others?

PowerPoint Presentation:

Folders will be a way to encourage you to be on time. The first five minutes of class, you will write on paper in your folder. There is no length requirement. Your entry may be a sentence or two, or it may be a paragraph. Entries should be dated . At the end of the five minutes, the topics will no longer be on the screen, so if you are late, you must access Blackboard to get the topic and bring it with you the next class to put it into your folder. Folders will be worth 100 points (50 points at mid-term and 50 more at the end of the semester).

We will be in the computer lab next Tuesday too. I will teach a short lesson, but after the lesson you will have at least one half hour to write a paragraph. I will tell you the topic then. You will be using all your skills to organize and to write the paragraph. I need to know how much you know before I know what you need to learn!
