Assignment or announcement?
About your previous assignment, I have to say that I am impressed how critical you can be to each other. I hope the spirit of learning has increased tremendously, outside our classroom. Basically, most of you agreed that parents should be held responsible for the wrongdoings of their children. When you disagreed with the topic, you have to give reasons why you chose to disagree, not to give other externalfactors that leads children to commit crime. You have to stay with the topic given. Do you agree? I would like to remind the discussion participants to keep the language as close as possible to formal one. Avoiding 'text messaging' language will be a great practice for your essay writing. Don't you think so?
Here is another topic to be discussed.
Maternity Leave Should be Extended to Six Months. Do you agree? Discuss the topic by giving your points.
Please do some Internet research on the topic with your partner. You may change your partner or stay with the same person for this assignment. This will be topic we will discuss in class next week after the TICE.
Deadline: 14 December 2009 (9 A.M)
I will post another assignment for you to do individually during the holiday starting Monday the 14th of December. Having holidays does not mean learning stops.
I have linked a website to give you some insight of what maternity leave is all about. This topic falls under the theme Family.
Till then, have fun discussing.
