Well done to those of you who completed the Dunkirk research task (17/27). I was impressed that most of you used the article and video to select the key information and then para-phrased (reworded) it in your own words. This is an important skill for studying, researching and writing your own texts. I was pleased to see that the majority of you used correct punctuation, capital letters and spelling. Only a few of you made mistakes that could have been easily corrected if you had read over your work before submitting the post. These ‘quick fix’ errors are easily avoidable and it is your responsibility to check your work. The criteria was for the summary to be ‘around 50’ words and most of you hit the mark, however if you were way over please try to summarise the key points.
Please take the time to read your peers’ summaries.
