Peer Edit

For British Society & Lit 1 and Shakespeare:

Remember to bring 3 copies in print of your paper, in progress, for peer edit. The peer edit day is included as an in-class writing assignment.

  • Brit Soc & Lit 1 meets Wednesday, June 14 for peer edit.
  • Shakespeare class meets Thursday, June 15 for peer edit.

Wikipedia Articles

Here are some of the Wikipedia entries by the involved groups. Please remember that your entries cannot be like essays– they must be objective and include cited references for all claims. Pages may change as other editors alter information– which is how Wikipedia works.

I won’t evaluate these pages for a few days in case groups wish to do some last improvements!

  1. Dorian Gray (character)
  2. Montjoy (character)
  3. Dark Lady (character)
  4. Ferdinand (The Tempest)

Wikipedia Project

— Students working on the Wikipedia course project —

  • The final due date for the group project is Thursday, June 8.
  • Please don’t send me a report! Send only your link to your (more or less) finished web page.
  • Here is an example I wrote myself: Seoullo_7017_Skypark 
  • Remember that you are writing an encyclopedia entry and not an essay. Do not include your personal opinion; include only facts and arguments made by sources you can cite.
  • A long entry with no references will quickly be deleted by other editors; a shorter entry is better if every major statement is backed up with a citation (see the one I wrote).
  • Do your best; I know this is the first time students have tried this in my classes.

PBL Vision & Career: MUL Episode 6

Managing University Life Episode 6 Blog Post — Comments will be closed June 7
  • Watch Episode 6 of MUL below and answer the question(s). You can watch the video anywhere– we aren’t meeting in the office this week.
  • On Thursday, June 15 you will be submitting a written assignment on one of the issues discussed in Episodes 1-6. Write a paper of about 750 words discussing how this problem is a factor at Hanyang ERICA, and how it might be solved. Be specific and do some research– “The university should fix poor eating habits by encouraging students to eat better” isn’t a realistic or detailed solution.
  • There was an error in the YouTube link for Episode 5. Here it is.

Choose one of the following questions and write a post of about 100-200 words answering it. There are no right or wrong answers; give your opinion, or respond to someone else’s post.

 

  1. “Education is not something you buy or receive—it must be earned, just like fitness.” What does this mean, and how is becoming educated like becoming physically fit?
  2. Write an imaginary e-mail to a professor to ask for something, using polite language; or, write an imaginary cover letter for an internship or program.
  3. If asked in an interview, “what is your greatest weakness?”, if you answer “I like to work too hard!” the interview will just think you are lying. What is a better answer that you could personally use yourself?

PBL Vision & Career: May 24 Video

PBl Vision & Career students: For this week, please watch the video 대학생활과 학습전략, “Campus Life & Learning,” at Hanyang’s website. You don’t need to come to my office; you can watch it wherever you like. There is no blog post for the video.

Have a good time at the festival this week. But do remember the video episode on responsible drinking.

Choose one of the following questions and write a post of about 100-200 words answering it. There are no right or wrong answers; give your opinion, or respond to someone else’s post.

 

  1. You need to work on a group assignment, and one of your members isn’t helping at all. What are some ways you might solve this problem with positive-sum thinking?
  2. You’re having a good time at the party/M.T. but you’ve had enough alcohol for the night. How can you avoid drinking more alcohol if you don’t want to? List some strategies you might try, or recommend.
  3. One of your friends obviously has a caffeine addiction, and can’t get through the day without huge amounts of soda and coffee. Saying “drink less” isn’t going to help. What other advice can you give to help?
