Media Listening 9th March – Discussion Class (13th March)

This Homework assignment is due March 13 before class:

1. Visit the link below; 2. watch the video; then 3. answer the discussion questions –type your answers.

Please PRINT OUT the questions and answers and bring them to class.

*Group Leaders remember you need to prepare thoroughly and create some additional questions for discussion in your groups.

I will confirm the Group Leaders on Tuesday (probably after class). I can’t confirm the groups or the discussion leaders right now as I’m not sure how many students have dropped the class. The details are on the syllabus.

Discussion Leader: Each student will be responsible for leading a small group discussion twice during the semester. Grading will be based on preparation (including additional discussion questions), understanding, and leadership.

Class Participation: Each student will be responsible for completing the discussion group questions before class and participating actively in group discussion.

Please check here and our Google Group for more details. Follow the instructions carefully, but if you have a question – just ask!
