Informative essay due today


Written essay exam next week!


We received an exam preparation handout. (*gasp* Paper!)


We are allowed to print a copy of the “Most Offensive
Commercial…” and “What a Certain Visionary…” articles and bring them to the
exam.


Only the version linked to on the forum!


Can make notes in the margin on the FRONT SIDE of the paper.


NO FULL SENTENCES in the notes.


We will hand in our supplemental material (the articles/notes)
with the exam.


We will be given as much of the 3 hours as possible but it
is a 2 hour exam.


Door will be locked by 9:15


For cryin’ out loud turn your cell phone off.


ANY USE of an electronic device and you get a zero.


It is ok to bring water. But NO FOOD!





The essay is approx 750 words.


3-5 body paragraphs, plus intro and conclusion paragraph


BUDGET YOUR TIME!


PRE-WRITING
Approx 40 minutes -1 hour of the exam time.


Goal is to get to a plan.


Develop thesis statement (topic/controlling idea)




WRITING
Approx 15- 40 minutes of the exam time


Brainstorm around the topic

Can write the essay in pencil but
pen is preferable.


Make a semantic web

Write each paragraph on a separate
piece of paper to help with organization and revision.


DOUBLE SPACE THE ESSAY!




REVISION


30 minutes of the exam time.


Read sentences out of order to pick up errors


Read backward to help detect spelling errors.


CONTRACTIONS ARE THE DEVIL


Include in-text citations (APA style)


Sentence fragments will be a common mistake. Make sure each
sentence has a SUBJECT, VERB, and a complete idea.


Don’t start sentences with AND







Make corrections by crossing out
the word with a single line and writing the correction above.


Can have a foot note page for
additional corrections. Try not to have too many.
