How To Use The Course Calendar
Using all of this information requires a bit of organization, so follow these general instructions. The works themselves, listed by title and author, are primarily on the internet or handed out in class. You are then to view the Web pages for the authors and topics for that week, listed as a link on the English Internet Resource List section of the Web site (not all are covered). That means all you have to do is click on the colored (usually blue) label of the name or address of the site. Following that, read the online presentation of the format strategy for the week (Org & Outline, Quoting Your Sources, How To Take A Test, etc.). You are also required to read the thematic presentation for that week in Online Presentations (Character, Theme, Irony, etc.). This will allow you to follow the schedule and be topical in the classroom. Read the directions. Assignments and due dates for papers and tests are posted on the Message Board. Most of this syllabus is self-explanatory. The following is a plan for the semester.
