My Courses

ENG1121, D492, Spring 2016

ENG1121, D492, Spring 2016

In ENG1121, we will explore four writing tasks – summary, critical reading/critique, synthesis, and research. Our semester will be divided into six units of focused study: • unit 1: annotation, MLA citation, best practices • unit 2: academic essays • unit 3: literary fiction • unit 4: periodical publications • unit 5: research project • unit 6: final portfolio Units 2 through 4 will require preparation of short response papers that reflect an understanding of one or more of our writing tasks. Unit 5 will culminate in a research paper that links something from the past with something from the present, and unit 6 will result in the creation of a final portfolio containing revisions and evidence of self-reflection.

Unit 5 will culminate in the creation of a process project, and unit 8 will result in self-reflection and a brief presentation.
