Welcome to ENGL1301 for the Spring 2006 semester. The Course Description will give you an overall view of what the course is intended to accomplish. The Goals and Objectives are very important because these are the "whys" for this class. Why are we emphasizing certain elements and not others? The Assignments we will do have been developed in order to help us meet the Goals and Objectives. Of course Grades are important to students, but with good Attendance and Participation, I assure you I will work with you in every way possible so that you can successfully complete this course.
