Several of you were absent yesterday and/or today and others have written me some emails with questions about what you are supposed to do so I'm going to give some info here.
Feedback on E-tivity 6
What can I say but excellent :-) As you can see by the feedback from Group 01 and Group 05, you are definitely making improvements in your written work. From the contents I found in your blogs, I can see that you are making progress in your ability to critically think about referencing, sources, what should be done, how and when, etc. And from the comments you're making in (almost) all cases it appears you are learning to help each other out and are becoming a community of learners so keep up the good work ;-)
Today in class, rather than focus on your work from task 2 in E-tivity 6, I decided to focus on language. So,
- if you weren't in class, please download the feedback above, reflect on it and sent a comment to this post if you've got questions about it;
- if you were in class, the links above will show you the complete versions for Group 01 since in the photocopies I made for you in class, many of the corrections were missing;
- if you would like me to check your work from task 2, E-tivity 6, send it to me in an email.
I'm hoping that some of the problems we encountered in class, e.g. some of you not being able to edit the original .doc are resolved if you are working with Firefox, and not from one of our labs! If this is not the case and you're still having problems, let me know.
You are welcome to work on the task individually, but by Sunday I'd like there to be a complete corrected version of the original .doc shared. You can either highlight the pieces of text you edit and change so that your peers know you've done something to the original or check the history function to see if your peers have corrected something before you. The main aim of the task is not necessarily to get a corrected version (I've already got that!), but to get you focussed on the kinds of issues that come up when you are trying to reference and follow a specific style. I would encourage you to blog about this (frustrating) experience.
As always, write a comment here if you've got questions and doubts.
Have a happy May Day :-)
