Each student’s participation during class is essential. Students are required to respect one another and the instructor. Side discussions and/or talking “over” someone will not be tolerated in this class. Working on a computer during class discussions and lectures is prohibited, though computers can be used to take notes. COURSE DESIGN, GOALS AND OBJECTIVES: English 102 focuses on argument. Each composition is to forward an unambiguous claim supported by evidence that incorporates external sources documented in MLA style. Dealing with complex reasoning and use of external sources are important elements of English 102. At the same time, students should continue to improve their style and facility with Standard Edited American English. While many of the rhetorical patterns of development common to English 101 will be used to develop the argument, students should be aware that the primary purpose of argument is to change opinion and/or move the audience to action. In English 102, all stages of the writing process should stress development and support of critical reasoning. Mechanically and grammatically adept papers that lack serious, well- reasoned content should not be considered acceptable at this level. Final copies of all essays and writing assignments are to be placed in a portfolio that is collected on the last day of class.
