Top 10 Ways To Make An A In Comp II

Top Ten Ways To Score An "A" In My Class

I have noticed that the students who earn A's in class tend to have similar behavior patterns. So do the F students. Read on.

1. Take copious notes in class.

2. Look up words like copious. In a real dictionary.

3. Be there, be on time, stay, participate, stay awake.

4. Always read your papers out loud.

5. Pay strict attention to the comments I write on your papers and do something about them.

6. Identify your writing bugs and stamp them out.

7. Hang out with the "A" crowd -- the "F" crowd goes backwards, not forwards.

8. Write papers ahead of time, not at the last minute.

9. Go further than required. Sit up front, not in the back.

10. Proofread, proofread, proofread.
