( FYC ) The Tempest , William Shakespeare, any edition with original language (no “modern translation”) Prerequisites: To enroll in English 1102M, students must have either exempted English 1101 or passed it with a “D” or better. To graduate, however, students must have earned a grade of “C” in English 1101 and have a combined average grade of “C” in English 1101 and 1102/1102M. Students therefore are strongly advised not to enroll in English 1102/1102M until they have received a “C” in English 1101. Goals: Students taking English 1102M will have the same writing requirements and goals as students taking English 1102, but will study the literature representative of the following cultures: African American, Hispanic American, Asian American, and Native American. In addition to offering three hours of credit toward the First-year Composition requirement, English 1102M will also fulfill a graduation requirement of the College of Arts and Sciences for a course in multicultural studies. In addition to writing papers and doing other work, all students will create a final electronic portfolio that counts approximately as one-third of their final grade. Course Requirements: Students will write a minimum of three essays (approximately 1,200-1,500 words). Teachers may choose to substitute for one out-of-class essay an in-class essay of approximately 500-1,000 words. In addition to writing papers and doing other work, all students will create a final electronic portfolio that counts approximately as one-third of their final grade. The ePortfolio will include: * a biography of the portfolio author and, if desired, a picture of the writer or other relevant image; * an Introductory Reflective Essay that presents a significant "thesis" to be supported by the individual writing exhibits; * two of the three essays written for the class – revised, edited, and polished as final products for the portfolio; * one example of writing that demonstrates and discusses the student's revision process; * one example that demonstrates and discusses the student's contribution to peer review; * one "wild card" submission chosen by the student.
