ENG 1121 Composition 2, Fall 2021

ENG 1121 Composition 2, Fall 2021

English 1121 continues the work we began in English 1101. We will work on developing critical reading and writing skills as we write about works of literature. We will discuss three literary genres: non-fiction essays, poetry, and the novel. Assignments will require students to write in different styles such as summary, citation, exposition, comparison, analysis, and research. In addition, we will utilize the City Tech digital platform called OpenLab (in addition to Blackboard), which will help us to engage with each other’s writing and world outside of the classroom.

The Place Where We Dwell

The Place Where We Dwell

The OpenLab Project is a companion public website to the anthology The Place Where We Dwell: Reading and Writing about New York City. Students taking their first or second composition class might approach writing and critical thinking as overwhelming, much like New York City to the newcomer. The aim of the third edition of the textbook–and this website–is to try to contextualize critical reading, writing, and thinking, while exploring this place we call home.
