We’ve completed our first week, which means we’re about 16% done with the class.
We learned about apostrophe usage (John’s going to bed [John is going to bed]; It is John’s bed [It is the bed of John]).
We quickly discussed the writing process (pre-writing, drafting and editing).
We started to examine the skill of summarizing information (remember, there is such a thing as saying too much and such a thing as saying too little).
For homework, read this sample essay, taken from a CUNY CATW exam, and summarize it. You do NOT need to respond to the essay – simply restate, concisely and in your own words, what is being said.
