Gambatte!

Dear students,
Here is my grading criteria for your book reports:

0 Copying
1 The book was probably read.
2 The summary was not well written and the opinion lacked much thought.
3 The summary was well written OR the opinion showed critical thinking.
4 The summary was well written AND the opinion showed critical thinking.

This means that people who read well can get a "3" for smart thinking.
People who write well can get a "3" for good writing.
You need to do both to get a "4".

THREE DISCOVERIES ABOUT YOUR ASSIGNMENT GRADES

1) The variety of words was more important the total number of words.
2) Opinions were more important than summaries.
3) Opinion length wasn't that important.

This means that a short intelligent opinion may be better than a long summary.

Keep up the good work!
I will mark again in July, so if you edit your summaries (use the email response) your score may improve.





Kind regards,
Chris Elvin
