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 CourseĀ 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 Departmentā€™s First-Year Writing curriculum, as well as distance education and continuity best practices.

The model courseĀ includes suggested materials, ideas, and promptsĀ that can be used to create your weekly agendas and lessons to facilitate the planning of class sessions and writing assignments. These materials have been revised to allow greater flexibility for a variety of teaching modalities.

Please feel free to contact us if you have questions about Core Books at CUNY curriculum or these materials.
