What will be in the email to the students

In grading the papers, I realized that you probably needed the same presentation that I gave to my on-campus classes so I’ve tried videos. These videos are very short and very rough. They are made with Jing—a free product and have Jing’s advertisement at the top.


Click on the link below or copy it into a browser. Then read the column “What Do You Want to Know?” to find videos you might want to use.


<BETH, I’ll put the link to this file here;

 below is what is in the file

Scan down the column “What Do You Want to Know?” to find questions you want answered. Then look to the right for the link to the video. If you want to see what is shown in the video, look at the right column.

What do the highlights mean on your paper?

To speed up the work and to identify errors quickly, I highlight with two different colors. For example, I might use:

·         Pink for all words you have placed in quotation marks (“”).

·         Blue for all endnotes and other information about evidence
