The English 101 Fall Cruise-Week13: Of Commas, Verbs and Nouns



Captain's Log: December 8, 2015

Week 13

The crew returned refreshed after the American holiday weekend, Thanksgiving. Now, final preparation for writing of the final exam paper, the research theme, is in “full throttle.” 

On Tuesday I spent time providing answers to the grammar review quiz at the end of Chapter Two of Bare Essentials. Crewmembers had worked in groups to do this quiz. Now, I provided the answers as well as explanations. In addition, I asked them what mechanics/grammar issue seemed to challenge them the most. Answers? They responded that commas, subject-verb agreement, and pronoun-antecedent agreement errors seemed to cause them the most dismay.
