Guess what?  I got WACY in my classes again today.  Our next writing assignment prompt is a life-changing event, so I paired them up and told them to talk about their life-changing event.  I had them to write down their life-changing event first, before getting into their pairs.  I made sure not to pair them … Continue reading

WAC Overload

I don’t know if anyone else feels this way, but all of the information that was discussed in class today seemed to be bit much.  Don’t get me wrong I am not complaining; however, to see all of our assignments outlined the way they were and the number of words each assignment entails was kind … Continue reading
