Course Description: This course fulfills the requirements for English 302 (students must achieve a grade of C or better to pass Engl 302). Students will have intensive practice in writing and analyzing such expository forms as the essay, article, proposal, and technical or scientific report. There is a significant amount research in English 302. A major research paper is required.
Class activities (discussion, response to drafts, paper submission, etc,) will be conducted via various computer-mediated communication mediums. Students will use the Internet for research and reports. Students will create web pages and use a web-based discussion program called Townhall) for asynchronous class meetings.
The instructor will meet in person with the class at the beginning of the semester to explain course requirements, review syllabus, discuss basic technology and modes of communication. At the end of the semester students will meet in person to present their group project - to be published on the Web. If you are struggling with basic technology skills and/or do not have regular access to a computer connected to a modem this class is not for you. The advanced writing in this class requires a great deal of time and effort - struggling with technology skills at the same time could jeopardize your ability to keep up with the course requirements.
Student prerequisites: Completion of 45 credits,
of composition, and six credits of literature. You should
have a declared major appropriate for the section in which you enroll.
If your technology skills are marginal , it would not be advisable to take
this course via distance learning. If you are really struggling with
composition skills, learning the technology might interfere
I have read the prerequisites above and understand that it is my responsibility to obtain the skills and computer access specified before the course begins. I am also aware the course will include some on campus meetings.
I agree to check my MASON/OSF1 email for notices about the
course once I enroll. (Your commercial email account will not automatically
receive these messages.)
