29 Oct


Thank you very much for your hand-written feedback from Oct. 21. As always, it’s incredibly helpful to me as a teacher. Here are two generally common themes that I noted from them:

  • By and large, the relatively relaxed nature of the class is a good thing. I’m pleased to hear that, and that approach will continue.
  • You’d like more instruction on grammar and sentence-level issues. I can certainly accomodate that. We’ll have some punctuation lessons (semicolons, colons, M-dashes, commas, quotation marks, etc.), as well as discussions of run-ons, comma splices, complete sentences, fragments, and spiffing up otherwise dry sentences in the coming week or two.

Again, thanks for the feedback. I’m almost done with your celebrity obituary essays, and overall, they are a pleasure to read; you seemed to have a lot of fun with them. You’ll have them returned to you on Nov. 4.

You’re QOTW prompt for Week 9 is posted below.
