The semester schedule and the accompanying assignments linked to below have been specifically designed for teaching English 1121. We encourage you to use the documents in whichever way is most helpful: use them in their entirety by cloning the English 1121 Core Books Model Course on the OpenLab or copying the materials into a Blackboard site, pluck out certain units, or adapt the exercises to fit with your existing syllabus. These materials incorporate ideas from both the Core Books at CUNY curriculum and the English Department’s First-Year Writing curriculum, as well as distance education and continuity best practices.
