Hi everyone, and welcome to Spring 2022!  

Please remember that we’ve instituted required syllabus templates for the teaching of ENG 1101 and 1121. There is still room for your own language and curricula, but we need to use a template that is accessible, as well as one that contains all CUNY and City Tech policies and requirements.  Because these are formatted to be properly read by a screen reader, please enter your information into a copy of the appropriate template below:

Note: I will resend copies in MS Word as well. Please be aware of the comments. You do not need to use everything in these documents verbatim. The language in italics can be changed. The language not in italics is departmental, college or university policy and must be kept as is.  

Also, last year, we started a weekly (or sometimes semi-weekly) blog, in which we discuss topics that may be of interest to you– especially teaching online during a pandemic.  We’ve also updated our “Online Teaching” section of this website (see above).  It contains some info from these blogs as well as other information and handouts to help you with your teaching this semester. 

Some people have been asking specifically about perusall, an online annotation program.  We’ll be holding workshops to help with it early in the semester, but I’ve put together a few (very ad hoc) videos HERE to explain how it works!

I’ve also made Unit One overview videos for the Model Courses if they would be helpful for you.  Here is the overview for Unit One ENG 1101 (Comp 1) and here is the overview for Unit One 1121 (Comp 2) 

Zoom Office Hours :

For Spring of 2022, I will be holding Zoom office hours by appointment. Please contact me at: chall@citytech.cuny.edu if you’d like to meet!  I will also hold departmental office hours once a month, time TBA! 

We will also be holding workshops regarding model courses, perusall and other educational technologies in the second week of the semester. Stay posted for dates!
