My Courses

ENG 1121 OL48 Spring 2022

ENG 1121 OL48 Spring 2022

In this course you will take skills you acquired in Eng 1101 to the next level. You will enter this class alone, and leave as a part of a vibrant and lively Writing Community. The work is rigorous, unusual, challenging — and fun. You won’t look at language the same way again.

ENG 1101 OL01 Spring 2022

ENG 1101 OL01 Spring 2022

We are going to explore new ways of looking at language and ourselves. So get ready to be challenged. And: Don’t be misled by the fact that this class is “asynchronous.” We will strive to make the English class experience unifying, clarifying, and a great vehicle for meeting new, amazing people. Once you have completed ENG OL01, you will become a better communicator on every level!

ENG1101OL10SchmerlerFall2021

ENG1101OL10SchmerlerFall2021

This class will prepare you for the world beyond the campus walls. You will become a better communicator, comfortable writing on different platforms and in different styles and tones. There will be lots of writing and really interesting discussions. Lots of note-taking is key! Prepare to be challenged, and to challenge us, too.

ENG 1101 LC22/CD322 Fall 2017

ENG 1101 LC22/CD322 Fall 2017

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.
