I may not give extra-credit but I do grant the wish of extra time on assignments. Late Pass! One way to grab it is through our weekly participation/ grammar exercise. You will watch one vignette and write a brief description (1 to 4 sentences) that captures the tone. The catch is that you must blend in at least one form of selected sentence structure while reflected pitch perfect connotation of the tone of the film. How do you win? You vote of course...After I tally all all the entries, I post them so you can review them and vote for the best one. Let's be clear...you write, vote and gobble up class participation credit while honing your syntax.
This week's syntax move: participial phrase:
- Pursing his lips, he struggled not to call out his professor's obvious error.
- A lazy student, always looking for a corner to cut with his assignments, ironically, may do more work to get out of doing work.
Remember to flex with strong verbs!
