LTED 305: Class on Monday, February 23 2015
My colleague Ms. Yuhas will be administering tonight’s practice exam.
As soon as you arrive, if you are typing your exam, please turn off spell and grammar check- instructions:
Click the File tab, and then click Options.
Click to clear the Check spelling as you type check box.
Click to clear the Mark grammar as you type check box.
Tonight’s practice exam will help you manage your time and reduce test anxiety. This is the first of many. Throughout the course you will have several practice exams in order to prep you for the final exam. The rules for this exam are as follows:
* The exam is 2 hours long. You must stay the full hours. Why? Because the test is designed to take two hours. A general rule to follow is to spend thirty minutes reading and taking notes, one hour writing, and thirty minutes editing.
* Spell and grammar check must be turned off. This is so Professor Krone can see your weaknesses and give you personalized lessons in order to help you pass this exam.
* Cell phones must be away and on silent.
* You are not allowed to use the Internet or any handouts/resources during this practice exam.
* You may hand-write or type.
* At the end of the exam, if you typed the exam, please print and hand in to me but ALSO email the exam to firstname.lastname@example.org.
(1) For homework last week you were to complete the Comma and Apostrophe Packet. I posted on the blog under CLASS HANDOUTS the answer keys to both of those packets. They are called COMMA ANSWER PACKET and THE APOSTROPHE ANSWER KEY. So, check your answers with the answer key. That way next class we can go over what you struggled with.
(2) Please complete the AGREEMENT packet. Here is a handout but it is also on the blog under “Class Handouts.”
(3) Study “Commonly Confused Words” on the blog under “Class Handouts”
(4) Watch the following videos for homework (on the blog under Class Handouts toward the bottom after VIDEOS): Past Perfect Tense, Prepositions in English- OF, and 6 Ways to Use the Verb Go in English
PLEASE EMAIL OR CALL PROFESSOR KRONE WITH ANY QUESTIONS.
