Summary: After explaining the homework, the class discussed reading homework given on Class 02, you discussed in groups:

1. What kind of English goal setting do you have for this Quarter?

2. How do you sequence your study activities and homework?

3. How do you break goals in manageable activities to get things done?

4. How do you engage in the learning process?

5. Also talk about the "Three Approaches, Deep, Surface, and Strategic.
