  • Old assignments will be moved there 


During the first week in this class you were expected to set up

  • your Google account
  • and HCT email

Then you wrote a "good" paragraph


In the second week you were supposed to introduce yourself and write a simple statement about how students could best learn in Academic Composition class, despite being so sleepy. You were also supposed to complete a handout on topic sentences.


Each of these assignments has a mark.  You will find your marks in the sidebar (click on your class)

Final Project overview


5 classes: Jan 17 to  Feb 6 

The final project recalls all you have learned in this course this semester
It should be minimum 300 words and counts 50% of your Final Mark

Phase 1: Support your thesis in a Google Doc

These materials have been moved elsewhere in this wiki.  Click here to read about Phase 1


You should by now have written your report in your Google Doc.  

You should have 5 paragraphs, minimum 300 words.

 You should SHARE your Google Doc with vancestev@gmail.com 



For day three of the project, you expand your work in Google Docs to 5 paragraphs, and also make your other three paragraphs longer.  To do that, use information from the websites you have found (at least one website for each reason).  


If you use words directly from the website, put quote marks around them and indicate in parentheses where you got those words exactly, like this: “Put words you copy from websites in quote marks like this.” (in parentheses, write from http:// etc.) 



See how this part of the Final Project is marked
