Prepare for the Exam
Friday December 7 2012 Class
To prepare for the exam you must read the two articles that were previously assigned. You are allowed to print these articles off the forum, once you are logged on, and can bring them to the class!!! Reminder this exam is really based on your critical thinking.
The two articles are (Remember to be logged into the forum):
“The Most Offensive Commercial Ever Produced”https://comm1007-2012-2013.canadian-forum.com/t91-the-most-offensive-commercial-ever-produced
“What a Certain Visionary Once Said”https://comm1007-2012-2013.canadian-forum.com/t74-what-a-certain-visionary-once-said
You are allow to make notes, ideas and comments on paper
… if written in sentences you will receive a zero on the exam. A good idea would be for a definition of a word write a synonym.
Notes must be on the face side (aka NOT ON THE BACKSIDE OF THE PAPER)
You are allowed to bring a paper dictionary and a paper thesaurus.
You are allowed to highlight, circle and draw arrows.
You are allowed to write in pen (preferred) or pencil.
You are also allowed to bring a watch, or a table clock if need be as phones will need to be shut off for the entire exam.
If phones go off you will receive a automatic zero on the exam.
Talking will stop once upon enter of the room.
No such thing as being late for the exam, be there by 11:00, doors will be locked by 11:01.
You must write the essay in double space font
Plan and make ideas of what the essay question(s) might be given to you.
(Compare and contrast?)
You have to in text citation if using ideas or quotes from any of the articles, be aware and jot down the proper citation (surname, pg #, date).
