Your Yellow List Quizzes have been moved to Monday! Why? I had a student explain to me that he didn’t like going into the weekend worrying about what grade he earned.. ūüôā ¬†Enjoy your extra “study time”.

AWUBIS – IW Revisions

Adding another layer to revising sentences:

Revise each sentence by using a subordinating conjunction (AWUBIS) at the beginning of each sentence.  This will cause you to be deliberate and think about your subject adn predicate. This exercise will cause you to be aware of the flow and lucidity of your writing.

Follow this order:
1-A
2-W
3-U
4-U
5-B
6-I
7-S

If you have more than 7 sentences, begin again with “A”.
