Class Report: ENGL 135.60174, Advanced Composition–28 July 2016

After addressing questions from and concerns about the previous class meeting, discussion treated student questions about readings and upcoming assignments. Instructor remarks about them were offered, as well, including an exhortation to get the work done that is assigned. Some comma usage, concerns of grammatical number, and concerns of gendered usage were addressed, too.

Students are reminded of the following assignments’ due dates:

  • Annotated Bibliography, 1 August 2016 at 0059
  • Week 4 Discussions, 1 August 2016 at 0059

Note that assessment of the assignments may be slowed this week, as the instructor is moving.

Note that a template and sample of the Annotated Bibliography are available in the course shell. An example of an annotated bibliography similar to that requested of students can be found here. An older, similar example can be found here. An example of a more expansive annotated bibliography, one meant to stand as an independent project, can be found here.

The class met as scheduled, at 1800 in Rm. 111 of the DeVry San Antonio campus. The class roster listed 13 students enrolled, unchanged since the last class meeting. Of them, seven attended, verified by a brief written exercise. Student participation was better than in previous weeks. No students attended office hours.
