Writing Strategies II, week 14: January 17th, 2014


Finish writing your final essay, print it out and bring it to class next week. All students must complete this essay to pass this course. Students absent on this day or who fail to give me their final essay will automatically fail the course. We will also read each other’s essays and do some final free writing.

Today’s class:

  1. Takami – about CS Lewis’ collection of essays “Of Other Worlds “
  2. Miyakawa – about the Bible story of Adam, Eve, the fruit and the snake.
Read each other’s essays. Check for
  1. Spelling
  2. Punctuation
  3. Missing words
  4. Verb forms and tenses
  5. Subject-verb agreement
  6. Academic language
  7. Format (double-spaced, name, date, etc., title, at least a 5-space indent, bibliography) – see the example essay in your MLA handbook.
  • Mis-spelling of Tolkien, Inklings and fairy tale: this is the responsibility of the presenter who did not give/show the English spellings of these key words.

Comments on MN, chapters 11 and 12.

  • See highlights in my Kindle edition of MN, chaps 11 & 12.

  1. I’m sorry to delay to send a message.
    I like the story of Harry Potter. It is the story of two boys and a girl of magic. They become best friends and they see a lot of people.
