This is a sample, with two rules. Only one of the rules, #12, is on the list of 6.
The assignment is also a bit of a Treasure Hunt, in the sense that you have to look for examples of commas being used, according to the rules. Why are we doing this??? I am seeing if you are able to recognize and understand how the comma works and then I hope to see you start using it in your writing.
UPDATE: I reviewed the assignment in class on Thursday, answered some questions, and provided another example for the students to see.
We are probably 30 minutes away from completing our viewing of Welcome. Just to recap, Bilal, the film's protagonist made a 3000 km journey form the northern region of Iraq to Calais, France.
In 7C, we returned to our discussion on Coding and did an exercise where we looked at how developers attempt to improve on a product that already exists. As an example, we talked about Instant Messaging and why it is so popular. When asked what was a really big messaging app, WhatsApp was cited.
The students in 7C will be thinking about the Apps we will develop and try to think of what already exists and how we can make something, which may exist, even bettter. Did that make sense?
Incidentally, Facebook recently purchased WhatsApp for over 19 BILLION dollars!! They have now used the thinking and brains behind that App to create Facebook Messenger.
