Week 11

1.   Thinking About Reading and Writing body of the report due

Body of the report description:

The body of the report will present your research, including your cornerstone reading. As a team, you will need to analyze your research materials and apply the same criteria to each source.  Analysis criteria could include readability for students, accuracy and thoroughness of information, activities suggested by the readings, and anything else that a professor might find useful in teaching this material to beginning university students. Create a subheading for each source in your report.


Each of the 5 sources should be discussed and analyzed in 400 – 500 words for a total of 2000 – 2500 words.

Where to post your body of the report: 

Post underneath the introduction.

2.   Read your peers’ Log #11 (Audience and Writing) in CIDocs and leave comments for each of the teammates in your group:
  • Go to the log folder and click on your peer’s log. Everyone in the class has access to everyone’s documents.
  • Leave comments by using what is called the 2 stars and one wish approach. Stars are positive – leave 2 positive comments; a wish is an improvement you would like to see – leave 1 improvement comment.
