Going over the debate today was very interesting and i enjoyed refreshing my mind on pre writing.

just finished writing my quiz questions for "the right stuff." it was harder to come up with good questions than i initially thought. good thing i'm not considering a career is making tests or textbooks. plus, it's not a flat-world-friendly job.

Wow! Quiz writing encourages you to read thoroughly through the text looking for just the "right stuff" to question. A very interesting approach to learning. And I might add that this is the first quiz I've ever had to write.

The quiz writing was very interesting. I had a lot of fun trying to come up with good questions and answers! It made me read the text a lot more closely than I probably would have if I had just read because I was searching for key facts.
