ENG 122 (CA17) Students [ONLY],

There is nothing to submit here; the comment box has been switched off.

At this entry you will find the course syllabus (CLICK HERE).

Per your instructions on the first day of class--if you have not . . .

. . . already done so--print the course syllabus, staple it, READ IT!, initial each paragraph of and sign the student-teacher contract on the last page (if you still want to take the course), and bring the lot to our NEXT class meeting. You will keep the syllabus (put it in your portfolio that you will bring to each class) and you will give the signed document to me.

The other parts of your first homework assignment are listed on the course itinerary. Read and follow my instructions carefully (the key to doing well in one of my courses).

I enjoyed meeting you at our first meeting. See you at our next one!

Dr. Hobbs


P.S. Please be aware that this entry will be the ever-growing repository for ongoing course handouts (study material) that I will expect you to print and read on your own time during the course of the semester. There are links to .pdf files stored on this server. After the semester, they will be removed. In the meantime, please download and read the following:
