Class Reports: ENGL 1113: Composition I, Sections 025, 044, 084, and 102- 5 October 2015

Discussion across the four sections of Composition I continued to address concerns of the TxtAn. Emphatic and topical order, as well as citation, received attention, with degrees and emphasis varying by section. Students were offered an opportunity to improve their grades through a riddle quiz based on an earlier riddle written expressly for the purpose of riddle quizzes. (The “correct” answer is “error.” As usual, proofreading and explanation of the student-provided answer, rather than the “correctness” of the answer, produce the grade.)

Students are reminded of the following due dates:

  • TxtAn PV, 12 October 2015 (print copy at the beginning of class time) **Note that an additional copy of the first page of the PV is requested.**
  • TxtAn RV, 21 October 2015 (via D2L before class begins)
  • TxtAn FV, 30 October 2015 (via D2L before class begins)

Regarding meetings and attendance:

  • Section 025 met slightly after scheduled, at 1032 in Engineering South 213 A. The class roster showed 17 students enrolled, unchanged since the previous report. All attended, verified through the riddle noted above. Student participation was minimally adequate.
  • Section 044 met as scheduled, at 1330 in Classroom Building 108. The class roster showed 18 students enrolled, unchanged since the previous report. Sixteen attended, verified through the riddle noted above; one of them was counted absent due to excessive tardiness. Student participation was somewhat subdued, particularly by the class’s normal standards.
  • Section 084 met as scheduled, at 0830 in Morrill Hall 306. The class roster showed 19 students enrolled, unchanged since the previous report. Seventeen attended, verified through the riddle noted above. Student participation was somewhat less robust than is usual for the class.
  • Section 102 met as scheduled, at 1230 in Classroom Building 221. The class roster showed 17 students enrolled, unchanged since the previous report. Sixteen attended, verified through the riddle noted above. Student participation was reasonably good.
