Week 6: Mid-term

  1. Essay: "The Truman Syndrome" as directed.  
  2. Free NYT Subscription: CUNY is providing all students with a free subscription to The New York Times. I strongly suggest every student take advantage of this opportunity. You may also download the app to your phone. The directions are HERE. My suggestions of sections to read are as follows:
    1. Opinion Pages
    2. Review of Books
    3. Sunday Review
  3. Revisions: "The Truman Syndrome" as directed.
  4. Tutorials (suggested): Introduction and Thesis, Paragraph Structure, Paragraph Development, Avoiding Run-ons, Subject-verb agreement.
  5. Additional CATW Practice (optional): HERE. Respond to this article as you would following the CATW directions which read as follows: "Read the passage above and write an essay responding to the ideas it presents. In your essay, be sure to summarize the passage in your own words, stating the author’s most important ideas. Develop your essay by identifying one idea in the passage that you feel is especially significant, and explain its significance. Support your claims with evidence or examples drawn from what you have read, learned in school, and/or personally experienced. Remember to review your essay and make any changes or corrections that are needed to help your reader follow your thinking. You will have 90 minutes to complete your essay."
