Assignment: Bring at least 30 minutes of enjoyable reading material for next week's one hour class block (ENG317-2: Monday, ENG317-3: Friday)
Throughout this semester, I encourage you to read as much enjoyable material as possible. Please document your reading and learning by going to the course website (jefflebow.net/eng317), clicking on your class Reading Notes and finding your personal Reading Record. List (and link to if possible) what you have read, add brief comments, and post any words or phrases that you learned. I suggest looking up words you don’t know after you’ve finished reading. While this is not a required assignment, it will be considered when calculating grades at the end of the semester. More importantly, I hope this will be a helpful habit for you to develop on your lifelong journey of language learning. Go Bookworms Go! Reading Notes: Eng317-2 Eng317-3
