According to what I am told you have 4 assessments coming up this week and next

  2. Listening (says Week 10 on the assessment plan, based on EdPuzzle)
  3. Final exam - (scheduled for Wed, periods 1 & 2)
    According to the Assessment Plan the final for this course is the IELTS test March 19, so this final exam this week is a new and unexpected development

http://dylansmaloney.weebly.com/uploads/6/1/7/4/61740237/topic_sentences_worksheet.pdf 

 

Wednesday, March 2

No classes with Vance today

 

Tuesday, March 1 (Period 4) final writing prep feedback and revision

 

Monday, Feb 29 (Period 5)

 

I handed out a writing exercise from Bb Learn, pp. 10-11 from

https://mylearn.hct.ac.ae/bbcswebdav/pid-4446547-dt-content-rid-7085611_1/courses/ENGN125.M.47.48/ENGN125.M.47_ImportedContent_20160104104523/2%20Exit%205%20T2%20Advantages%20disadvantages%20Student%20book.pdf 

 

I tried to go over the exercises with the students but they went straight to the writing 

So they are writing essays today on this topic, 250 words

In many countries, people eat fast food several times a week, rather than cooking for themselves. What are the advantages and disadvantages of this development?

 

I will take the essays done on paper and

1. read them into Google Docs

2. give feedback to the students to help them revise

3. have the students revise on iPads on Tuesday

 

Sunday, Feb 28

 

Period 4 IELTS Listening

 

Unit 4 listening from Complete IELTS book Unit 4 pages 39-40

 

Period 7 Vocabulary and writing revision

 

Of the 7 students in the class last week, on the writing assigned, 

3 wrote 350, 258, and 177 words

1 wrote only 63 words (she restarted after work copied from a website was rejected)

3 others submitted work copy / pasted from web sites, but did not attempt to write on their own

 

Furthemore, only 2 students had done any revision after I supplied feedback on Feb 25

 

So, there was not much I could do with the 3 students who are struggling to complete IELTS, as they were in the latter categories

http://www.memrise.com/course/572471/complete-ielts-unit-4/ 

 

What we have done so far

 

Finding facts on an aviation topic with advantages and disadvantages

On Tuesday Feb 16 through Sunday Feb 21

 

Putting the facts into a well organized essay

On Monday you were given Period 5 to work on your essays

  • Your teacher recorded the number of words produced by each student

On Tuesday you were given Period 4 to review vocabulary or work on your essays.

  • Some worked on essays, some on vocabulary, some did neither
  • Your teacher gave feedback on all your essays
  • Essays in general did not follow from the worksheets you were given Sunday
    • Some students went to work and did well
    • Some did not start their essays with clear ideas in mind, work unstructured
    • Some pasted text from websites that was not on the topic of this essay   

 

Getting organized, and completing the essay

In the two periods today, you must complete your essays

 

Period 2 - plan your essays in pairs

 

This period we will show how you can you use SELECTED information in the video to write an advantages and disadvantages essay on just two aspects of the differences between the Russian and Western Air forces.

 

Let’s consider some of the different aspects discussed

 

Aspect one - Approach to battle (the philosophical bent)

Advantages and disadvantages of Russian pilots toward approach to battle

  • Russians emphasize rugged nature, maximum performance, passive weapons, and ease of maintenance in the field, but lack high level of electronic warfare

  • American pilots rely on computer-driven planes and weaponry, conducting the battle beyond the visual range

 

Aspect two - Condition of airfields

Russian and American airfields

  • American FOD searches, scrupulously clean

  • Russians: scrap metal tossed anywhere, grass allowed to grow through cracks in the runway, birds uncontrolled

    • To the Russians this is logical, but what are the advantages and disadvantages

    • How does it impact their plane design?

 

Aspect three - design of planes

Plane design, advantages and disadvantages according to

  • American pilots

  • Russian pilots interviewed

See

https://docs.google.com/document/d/1M4DlO0RcObyVhZBQ1Y62YTLoD3m6kT_lWX142kKCHTY/edit?usp=sharing 

 

Aspect four - Battle readiness

  • Formation (precision) flying, advantages and disadvantages of Russian or American approach
  • Russian ejection seats, heat resistant petrol tanks, and ease of buckling in?

  • What is the impact of any advantages / disadvantages on combat readiness? 

 

Now, with a partner, choose two aspects you would like to write about and fill in the worksheet here with your notes for your essay. Here is the worksheet:

You must complete your essays on Thu Feb 25.docx

 

 

Period 4 - write your essay in you Google Doc

Now write your essay

 

Each partner prepares

  • a unique introduction to the topic
  • a paragraph about advantages and disadvantages of the first aspect
  • a paragraph about advantages and disadvantages of the second aspect
  • a unique concluding paragraph
