ENG922R_First Year Reading_Summer 2018

The most powerful skill you will ever master is reading. Knowing how to mine what’s inside a book will make you able to accomplish even the most far-fetched, difficult tasks in your life. Knowing how to accurately scan a web page will set you far ahead of your co-workers and fellow students. Start here. Never end. Reading is power, and learning is life long.

ENG 1101 LC32 Fall 2017

ENG 1101 LC32 Fall 2017

Persuasion is key to getting ahead in this world; but how can you make yourself heard if you can’t put your words out there in an honest, clear, and very impressive fashion? We have the answers: Hard work (what did you think?!), plus good new ways to re-frame your relationship to pen and paper, time management, and essays, essays, essays. You’ll like assignments when we’re done with this semester.

ENG1101 – C/D332, Spring 2018

Do you know how to make yourself understood? How to express your thoughts and feelings — and persuade people — in the best way you possibly can? Revision, writing, more revision, more writing, and a host of mind-opening activities are what you can expect in this course. Everyone in class is a scholar in residence, a participant in the act of learning.

English Composition I, building real-time, real-life skills for writers who want to make an impact on the world and make themselves heard. Revision, creative self-expression, and the courage to meet new challenges in the Information Age comprise our keystone. Every person in class is a scholar in residence, their voice unique, their ideas respected.

Attention Freshmen Writers: Armed with simply a pen and paper, we solve life’s complicated problems by breaking them down into simple steps. “In life there are no easy answers – or, are there?,” says our Mission Statement. “Large problems are actually workable when you break them down into simple steps. In this Learning Community (which combines English and Math), students will translate their own innate abilities into actionable tools for written communication and mathematical problem solving.” ABOUT US: We are a First Year Learning Community at CityTech (NYCCT) that unites two professors, myself (Sarah Schmerler, English Dept.) and Grazyna Niezgoda, Mathematics. I teach ENG 1101, and Prof. Niezgoda teaches Math 065. We share the same students in both our classes in an effort to build unity and communication. It’s been proven that Freshmen have better skill retention and stay with the college experience when we, the faculty, combine our forces and work together.
