Regarding the grading system for this semester: it will be the same as the first semester: 55% for textbook work plus 4 x 10= 40% for conversations in your group or with me *5% =100%. You lose points for oversleeping and not doing the textbook. You gain points for being active in class.
Your first conversations for 10% will be next week, the 22nd. They will be based on p. 72 Discussion Questions. For this conversation, we will do something different from the first semester: If you want to make your group before the class, (max 3 people), then email me email@example.com. Then on the day, I will put you into a group with your friends. If you do this, you can choose the topic together and practice. If you don't email me, I will let Zoom decide your groups, and then you can choose your topic and prepare on the day.
Today: Start Unit 7.
Session 1: Check the vocabulary on p. 73. Do p. 74, A and B. (Check all of the meanings of the word 'acknowledge' before you start.)
Session 2: Do p. 75, C. (Look carefully before you start because it is a bit confusing, and if you are not sure what to do, ask me.) Do p. 75, D. (Carefully!)
Session 3: Do p. 75, E. Individually, choose one from p. 76, F and write a sentence. I will ask you to tell me your sentence, but you should try to memorise it so that you don't have to read it.
