For today’s beginning of class writing assignment, we will focus on time. Before coming into class, you should have read your article and thought about its contents. You will have 30 minutes from the beginning of class to complete and post your memo as a comment to this post. Use the following example as a guide for your memo:
TO: Professor Ellis FROM: Your Name DATE: Today's Date SUBJECT: Brief Summary of an Article About X (replace X with the main topic) One sentence describing the purpose of this memo (e.g., I wanted to bring your attention to this article about X--again, replace X with the topic). Two-three sentences summarizing the main point of the article. These sentences should be all in your own words. No quotes and no paraphrasing. APA citation for your article. Look at the example, "Article in a Magazine" on this page.
