Becoming Agents of Change: ENG/HUS1101

Becoming Agents of Change: ENG/HUS1101

Becoming Agents of Change: A Human Services 1101 and English 1101 Learning Community: In this Learning Community, we will investigate what it means to be an agent of change. By identifying the one social issue that you are most passionate about, you will explore what about your experiences make you interested in this issue, what your current role is in relation to this problem, and what you can do now and in the future to solve this problem.

Brain on the Page-Fall 2017

Brain on the Page-Fall 2017

This combined ENG92W and ENG 1101 course aims to simplify the process of translating ideas and thoughts from your brain to the page. Through critical readings, analysis of visual materials, research, and self-exploration, you will gain basic writing tools and gain confidence in recognizing your unique ideas and develop methods to convey them. This class is a First Year Learning Community. (Header Image: “Brain Page 368” by Sue Clark; taken from “The Home and School Reference Work, Volume I” 1917. Public Domain/Flickr Creative Commons.)

Topics include contemporary issues in sustainability, urban farming, roof-top gardens, health and financial issues, as well as community activism. Projects include web research, shared reading/writing with the paired reading class, presentations, surveys and outside civic related initiatives, interviews and visits.
