  1. Hard copies of “The Simple Present Tense Worksheet” , which consists of 20 exercises, 10 on each page, should be provided to the students or can be accessed at http://academic.uprm.edu/ggriggs/Exercises/Simple%20Present%20Tense%20Exercises.docx
  1. “Irregular Verb Tense List” – A handout sheet with a list of irregular verb tenses in the present, past, and past participle should be available to the students or can
  2. be accessed at http://academic.uprm.edu/ggriggs/SixTenses/Irregular%20Verb%20List.pdf

Assessment:

The authors recommend that the instructor or tutor have students complete the first page of the practice exercises as a pre-test prior to viewing the instructional video. Then, students may view the instructional video, The Simple Present Tense . . . Simply Put!, for detailed explanation and exemplification in present tense conjugation.

As a post-test, students should complete the second page of the practice exercises. If necessary, students may view the video again while concurrently verifying their work and completing the exercise worksheets.

Instructors will be able to assess whether the students master the simple present tense after viewing the video. If students require additional instructional support, they may view the video over again and concurrently complete the exercises with the tutor or instructor.

so some one know about replacing silicon atom with phosphorous in semiconductors device?
s. Reply
Yeah, it is a pain to say the least. You basically have to heat the substarte up to around 1000 degrees celcius then pass phosphene gas over top of it, which is explosive and toxic by the way, under very low pressure.
