General Explanation of Assignments:
There will be a total of four major essays completed during this course (see daily schedule for peer review and final draft due dates).
Essay 1 will be a literacy narrative in which you narrate and describe your experiences with
reading and writing.
Essay 2 will be a comparison and/or contrast of two views regarding the definition of
Essay 3 will be a proposal incorporating the concepts of process analysis and cause and effect.
Essay 4, the Final Paper, will be an independent persuasive web project of your own choosing
(more guidelines will be given later in the term).
All work is due at the beginning of class on the day it is due. All major essays should be typed on only one side of 8 ˝” x 11” white paper, double-spaced with 1” margins on all sides, and be in Times New Roman font. On days when drafts are due (workshop days), you must bring two copies of your paper to class. These copies should be clean, typed papers (the same format as the final draft) and already well edited by you. I will not accept any papers that are not in this format.
Any in-class writing assignments should be on one side of loose-leaf college-rule notebook paper and in blue or black ink.
In addition to attending class, you are also expected to contribute to class discussions and participate in workshop sessions with your peers. Learning is not a solitary process, but one that necessarily involves others and I thus consider class participation a very important part of achieving this class’s goals.
In-Class Writing & Quizzes:
Every week, you will complete in-class writing assignments that will deal with the material that has been assigned and discussed that week. In addition, you will have reading quizzes throughout the semester on material that is being discussed for that class meeting. If you are reading the texts as we progress though the semester, you should do fine.
You will be responsible for presenting to the class an assigned grammar topic. Read the assigned material and then create a handout that organizes and condenses the given topic. Make sixteen copies of your handout and distribute them to the class on the date of presentation. A good presentation should be both highly informative and interesting. A sign-up sheet will be passed around the class in the second week of class.
