Instructor notes: This course requires twelve hours a week of work (equivalent to an onsite course that meets for fours hours a week and has an additional eight hours of work outside of class), and work is due on Tuesday and Friday nights at midnight. English 100 has a heavy reading and writing load made heavier online because students must read and/ or view lectures and instructions typically delivered verbally in an onsite class and interact with classmates in ways that can be more time consuming than in an onsite setting. If you are a struggling reader or writer or find either of these skills particularly difficult, the Letters Department urges you to consider taking an onsite section of English 100 where you can receive more face-to-face interaction and support than you can receive in an online section. Students will find the syllabus for this section of English 100 available in Blackboard after June 10th and the first few weeks of assignments will become available on August 1 so that enrolled students may better understand the workload. To maintain enrollment in the course, students must complete the first set of assignments due on August 19. The assignments due on Friday August 22 will require the course textbooks, so students will need to have acquired those texts at the beginning of the first week of class.
