Hello everyone How are you? The exam marking takes really a week in total and the class protfolio takes a week also. Ladies the class Porfolio was not organised well and presentation was generally of a poor standard. There was time also given when I was correcting the Plans for you to update your Portfolio, 1hr 1/2. I am unsure about your record keeping skills and the marks reflect that. However the exam results were generally good.

The Portfolios will be ready from Saturday. They may be ready by the end of today but I cannot guarantee that. But if your are there at 3-00pm today then you can come to check if it is ready.

ALSO: 2 portfolios do not have a name so we cannot give a mark.
1. has Sara Al moudis name but we have 2 for you Sara so can you call me 0500230872 or email me mkellymcst.edu.sa or call to the office. We dont know which folder is yours.
2. next one has no name at all and perhaps from group 6. It is grey, slim folder, light grey with pink roses with orange leaves.
3. Finally Loloa, I found your name on a grey folder with sheets put in loosely. I have another folder for Lolola. So this one has 2 sets of notes and am unsure about who it all belongs to. so contact me please
0500230872 or email me mkellymcst.edu.sa or call to the office.
best for now dont go away!! Marie

Week 9 11th April Wednesday

Dear Students,

The paragraph on the function of the system for the project must be in your words.
That mean.......s read and understand the source of the information but RESTATE it in your own words. See the article on paraphrasing to help. To summarise choose a very simple source from a book or a web site. The underline the difficult words. Write a similar word or defination. The paragraph should be easily understood by the majority of the students.

Week 9th Apri

Today sesson included listing the Medical Terms for Body Organisation and Analysing these in the classroom. You worked in groups of four and each studetn did a sheet each. However that is only 1/4 of the terms. To really capture all the medical terms the best thing is to do the terms for all the combining forms and analyse all these medical terms. I put The Word List sheet on here on wiki space today. If you have time and prefer to do extra practice of the medical terminology then print out all four sheets for this Word List.

Good Luck!

Week 9. 8th April

Make up mid term. is for those who were absent and sick. You must bring your medical certificate for that absence before the end of next week. Failure to do so and you will not be allowed to do the Make up exam. Also the certificate must be written within the week that you were ill and not now at this stage.

HOMEWORK ASSIGNEMENT 3. - this is Word list one that you made in your groups using the mini dictionary and glossary. Please have the list completed and together for this week and put it into your portfolio.

MIDTERM EXAM- This will be on the 13th March. We await the exact time. Be aware the timetable for the exam is not complete so this date might change. All of the first chapter and the common terms for the Body Parts will be on the Midterm. The slides are important because they give more explanation and also the activity sheets give you practice. However the exam is based on all the terms from the book and the Parts of the Body Diagram and terms are the only topics that is not in the book but will be on the exam.
