Deadline for Task 2B and the others

Twisted Life!
      Have you heard your friends complaining and saying that life is twisted. What does it really mean? Well, to me, life is kind of hectic now (wonder why I am blogging while giving this announcement to you). So, you have so much on your plate now? Worry not. I am going to tell you the deadlines for 2 tasks that I have given to all of you to be done this week and to be finished by next week.

       For Task 2B, the pair work (compare and contrast of the invention of your choice): Deadline: 27th of July 2010. Surprised? I am giving you a longer time to complete the essay (including proofreading and editing) before posting it in your group blog. There should be 2 different entries for two pairs of each group blog. Don't forget to write the writer's names at the end of the essay. Try to write your essay worth reading. 

       For Task in LMS, it is an individual work. Retrieve it from your LMS  Dropbox and SEND it back to the same dropbox. This applies to both Section 17 and Section 21. Deadline: 26th of July, 2010.

Lastly, to those who have not posted the entry on Fast Food, in the blog, please do so. It is a group work.  Now, I have only one thing left to say : ENJOY YOUR WEEKEND. Life as a student can be painful... enjoy it while it lasts. 

Your loving and caring English Teacher.

An Advice for Everyone


Dear Both Group 17 and 21,

I am still here and tomorrow is my big day. Do pray that I will not get panicky and die in front of my audience of heart attack :).

Here is ONE assignment for this week. Remember that in your newspaper, you need to have an 'advice column'. I need you to create one, in a group, what would be the best advise that you can give to every readers that you have. This advise has to be different from the topic that you are doing now. Think of an advise you would give to people that would benefit them emotionally. 

This assignment is due on Thursday. 


Task 1: Group Work : The essay on Nature that you have been working on for the past 2 weeks is DUE this Friday. Please post the Assignment on An Advice for Everyone first and then another assignment on Task 1 after that.Remember to check your essay first, for grammar and spelling. There are 4 or 5 members in your group so, work closely together.
I am still thinking about my presentation tomorrow. You guys have fun while I am away, OKAY!! :) I will be giving some gifts from Brisbane/Gold Coast for the group that has the best essay. GOOD LUCK!

From Brissie with Love;
