Course Philosophy: This class intends to get you ready for the next phase of your life beyond high school. No matter what you do, you will need to be a dexterous reader of all kinds of texts and able to respond effectively to the ideas of others in writing, speaking, or other forms of communication/expression. You will also need to be able to work effectively with all kinds of people toward a shared objective. This class works toward preparing you for these experiences. If you are committed to the work as well as to listening to and learning from each other, this class will ultimately become one in which we are all teachers and students. Each member of the class will have a voice. Welcome to the course; I am very excited about the challenging year we have ahead of us! Class Preparation and Participation: I need you present every day, both physically AND mentally. When you walk in the door, be ready to think, listen, consider what others say, and express your own ideas. Have an open mind and be ready to challenge your own assumptions about things. This is critical to us learning from each other and enjoying our year together. In terms of class preparation, have work completed BEFORE class and do any assigned reading thoughtfully and carefully. Writing: 1. Expect several process papers each semester (meaning we will brainstorm ideas, you will draft, we will do feedback on your drafts in class, and you will revise toward a final draft). There will also be some in-class timed writings. We will use Google Docs to write, revise, and submit papers. We will also use Turnitin.com.

What students are saying

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
