One can feel trapped in open spaces, in a specific situation or even in a group, a "writing course" (ha, ha), and probably you may even feel trapped in your own house, city or country for numerous reasons. What do you think is the most critical aspect of being trapped with no way out? Keep it in mind when you write the comments to this blog post.

Watch the following video ( 7:17 min.) about something that happened in 1999. You may read more about this incident here.
Write briefly about your reactions and/or any other idea the video made you think of? What would you do in a similar situation? How do you think you would react? What surprised you the most?

Our Voicethread !!!

What a team!!!
You have set up your part of the presentation on your own, with minimum guidance or help and from different places and computers. Congratulations on an excellent job. I am really proud. There are still a couple of sections to be completed, but I am sure you will do so very soon.

I posted it to our sisterclasses. I had a lot of fun watching the presentation and I am sure other people will do too.

Excellent work!!!

The writing process

Here are steps in the writing process, as illustrated by the writing team at Monash University in Australia.

Is it different from the one you read here. Were you aware of these steps? Have you followed some of them as you had written the assignments in this course? Which do you find most difficult (pre-writing, drafting/writing, revising, editing)? Do you follow a similar process when you are writing in Spanish? Do you ever write formally in Spanish? in English? What recommendations were useful to you and you will probably take into account?

Write a brief reflection in the comment´s area.
