Week 7

Dear students,
Today you will take a mid-term paper test, which is worth ten percent of your final grade. Your task is to write a summary and opinion of a graded reader or novel that you have read recently. You will need to bring your book to class in order to cite it properly in APA format, and it should be a different book to the one you summarized in week one. Your book should not be ab ebook for today’s test. Dictionaries, cell phones or notes are not allowed, and you should write a minimum of 250 words.
Kind regards,
Chris Elvin

Week 5

Dear students,
Today you will read your globalization essays that you wrote for homework to another pair of students. Then you will study page 26-28 of the textbook and after that check your in-text citations and references first with your partner and then with your teacher.
For social issues as a topic, you will carry out a survey about a social issue that you are interested in. First decide what you want to find out in your survey, then write the questions, and after that, ask them. Your homework will be to write half each of the Social Issues report with your partner; introduction, method, results, discussion.
Kind regards,
Chris Elvin
P.S. If you write less than 200 words, your score will usually be low. Your reference should send me to your source. You should write your own sentences.
