Your teacher will copy the questions below into your shared document

 

Answer each question in a complete sentence. 

  • Incomplete sentences without subjects / verbs will not be marked (zero points)
  • Each correct question answered correctly in a complete sentence is worth 10 points
    (correct grammar 5 point; correct answer 5 points) 
  • if your work is mostly the same as someone else’s both students will get a zero 

 

You can do the work on paper but you will get feedback on paper and a mark.

You will not be able to improve your mark. 

 

If you use Google Docs, you will get feedback in the Google Doc

Period 6 Listening and writing in Google Docs

 

Answer questions based on those in the textbook at the bottom of p.23. These questions require students to listen to the exchanges in Ex.4 Track 16 and understand what the pilots and ground vehicles were doing. The questions were designed to give students practice writing at sentence level.

  2. Name is S3 Your Name p23 ex4
  3. and share it with vancestev@gmail.com

 

In your Google Doc write COMPLETE SENTENCES to answer these questions.

Say where each vehicle is and what it is doing

 

Please write your own sentences.

If your work is the same as anyone else's, then you have either given your work to another student or copy / pasted from that student.

I will not waste time with feedback on such work. I will print it and return it to the students.

I will keep copies in my file. All students involved get zero.
