5. Course Requirements
The class format will be mostly discussion, with frequent writing workshops and occasional lectures. The course is designed so that you will first complete simple writing assignments that review such concepts as close reading and presenting multiple sides of an argument; then progress to more elaborate researched essays.
The course requires regular attendance, participation via in-class and online discussions, timely completion of sequenced assignments, and attention to basic composition skills and literary analysis skills you learned in EL 150. (Students are welcome to use the writing center.)
I will often send out bulk e-mails to the address on file for you in the GriffinGate system. If you check a different address more regularly, please use SHU's e-mail forwarding service so that you don't miss important updates.
Unless the homework assignment specifically mentions a printout, you should assume that I don't want you to submit a hard copy. Most assignments will be submitted through Turnitin.com.
You should, however, bring a hard copy of your work for in-class peer review sessions. (I may ask you to bring in two or three copies.)
