R&W: Globalization Wrap Up and Intro to Employability

We finished our globalization unit today with the submission of our APA globalization essay and a few journals in our notebooks. Before turning those in, we did one more regarding our employable characteristics.

You were then given the employability unit calendar and this resume worksheet to complete for homework. I will check it in on Monday after we go over the pronoun worksheet from last Wednesday.

R&W: The Yes Men, cont.

We finished watching a few more clips from the Yes Men 2: The Yes Men Fix the World with clips 1, 2 and 3. We took notes on these on a separate sheet of paper before we completed A-D critical relationships with sources as practice for our essay.

Critical Relationships with sources/evidence is crucial in terms of your analysis in your essay. Using these strategies will help you develop your analysis and thus your claim/paragraph’s ideas.

Bring your rough draft tomorrow to the library for a second round of peer editing.

R&W: The Yes Men, cont.

We first debriefed clip 6 questions from last Friday for The Yes Men. We then watched and answered questions about Clips 7 and 8 (we skipped clip 9 for now). We then got out a lined sheet of paper and began to take notes on the 2009 doc, The Yes Men Fix the World. We got to 8:08 in clip 1 and will continue Monday with The Yes Men/critical relationships with this source before we do our second round of peer editing.

You need to have a draft that is closer to 4-6 pages on Monday, and has been developed from your first round of peer editing on Wednesday.
