My third and hopefully last attempt at completing english 111 at tidewater community college was very different from my past attempts.
The papers i had to write were pretty much the same , but the material covered was ertirely different from any other english class I have been in. Class discussion replaces boring lectures to engagae the entire class in thw writing process. Everything you need for the class is online. Course texts, assignments, prompts, and rubrics are all online and waiting whenever you need them.
The interesting texts covered in the course opened my eyes to things beyond just writing styles, MLA formatting, and grammar. In the course we watched documentaries that examie social issues that would not be covered in a regukar english class. The videos always sparked good class discussions that really help you to get to know your classmates. Knowing your classmates is important in an english class because you are comfortable sharing your writing with them. On Blackboard you will also find tons of interesting text not covered in the course but availible to you if you want it.
I would recomend this class to anyone looking to take an english one 111 class. If you ar like me and need something different from the perdictable standard english class; this class may be for you.You can visit my professor's blog at www.instructorzero.blogspot.com
Note to Mr Gasparo: Thanks a lot for sticking with me during this course. I hope to see you teaching a 112 8 week course next semester or maybe even in the summer.
