Cyber Job Fair

Dear Sophomores:

Please comment on three of your peers' essays. I will assign you two partners to comment on, then I want you to find one other essay that is about a job you might be interested in, and comment on that as well.

Here is the blog: http://ibsh-sophomores.blogspot.tw/?view=sidebar

Be logged into your gmail to comment and make sure your name is at the top of your comment so that you get credit for it.

In your comment, please answer the following:

1. To what extent does this essay give you a clear and interesting overview of what the job is like? What questions do you still have about the job?

2. Are the sources cited correctly in MLA format?

3. Click on one source and discuss how reliable it looks and how you know, using the terms we learned in the "Website reliability" article.

4. Give 3 suggestions on particular sentences that might currently be confusing, awkward, need transitions, or have a grammar problem. Quote the sentences and then explain how and WHY you would change them.

5. What was your favorite part of the essay? Be specific!
