Focus Group Quotations (1 May 1998, FREN 332-4): develop skills

Did this course give you skills you can use in other contexts?

"It helped me in reading other people’s papers. I had to do it in other classes before, and you kind of look at it and, you know, "Good job!" And you give it back to the person. But she graded us, and she had specific expectations for what we would say. She gave us an outline, didn’t she, in the packet. This was what she expected us to write and what would help us, and so I think this will help me in revising papers."
