Class began as scheduled at 0900 in PS 141. The class roster listed 29 students enrolled in the section as of 19 July 2015. Twenty-six attended, verified by sign-in sheet. Some note was made that class rosters have changed since initial notice; later reports will update enrollment to suit.
Class discussion introduced course documents, D2L, other online resources, the instructor, usage standards, and the first homework assignment, as well as treating Aristotle’s rhetorical triangle to begin features of writing. Student participation was adequate.
Students are reminded that the first homework assignment is due before 2359 on Tuesday, 21 July 2015. Materials and directions for the assignment are posted on D2L; rubrics are forthcoming and are likely to be discussed in class.
