Class Reports: ENGL 1213, Sections 015, 023, and 040–15 January 2016

Discussion in each section noted results from the diagnostic exercise conducted during the previous class meeting. It also introduced concerns of the StratRdg.

Revision to the syllabus and course calendar is ongoing, and a revised syllabus and course calendar will be published once the revision is complete. Meanwhile, students should add to the assigned reading for 20 January 2016 both Guide Chapter 5 and Mike Rose’s April 1985 College English article “The Language of Exclusion: Writing Instruction at the University” (available at this link), which will be used, per Program dicta,  to model academic reading strategies.

Students are reminded of the following due dates:

  • StratRdg Txt (in print as class begins on 20 January 2016)
  • StratRdg PV (in print as class begins on 25 January 2016)
  • StratRdg RV (via D2L before class begins on 29 January 2016)
