Recommendations for Integration:

 In the lower level writing class, this lesson may be used to reinforce students' paragraph-writing skills after they have gained some confidence in writing. In the higher level writing class, this lesson may be used in the beginning of the semester before the concept of an essay is introduced. As an extension of this assignment, an instructor may ask students to expand their original review into a multi-paragraph essay.


 Students must have access to computers with Internet in class or at home to meet the objectives of this assignment. To avoid technology glitches during the class, an instructor may insist that students publish their reviews after class, from home or a computer lab on campus.
