Schedule

The class schedule will develop over the term, with updates taking place via the course website. This course site schedule is your reference for assignments and due dates! Bookmark it in your “work” browser!

The process-oriented nature of English Composition allows for a flexibility in specific activities in order to tailor activities to the needs of the specific class. Smaller assignments will be added as we move through the term.

Expect to have both a reading and a writing assignment for each class meeting. Usually, there will be a couple of them. After all, this is a writing class.
