- From the Instructor:
- Welcome to WR121 Online! My name is Monica Christofili, and I'll be your guide through English Composition, otherwise known as WR121. You'll want to BE SURE to log into our class the VERY first day of the term because we cover TWO modules of work the first week, our 'Syllabus, Schedule, & Introductions' and our 'Week 1' module. It's very important that you complete our 'Syllabus, Schedule, Introductions' module by Wednesday night of our first week together so that you keep your 'seat' in the class and don't lose it to someone on our wait list. Then you'll want to complete our 'Week 1' module by Thursday evening.
- Course Specific Requirements:
- The prerequisites for this class are as follows: You have tested into WR121 or you have passed into it from WR115 with a C or better. The one optional book for the class is Diana Hacker and Nancy Sommers' 6th edition of _A Pocket Style Manual_. While this is the manual to which I'll refer, you may use any other updated manual for grammar, punctuation, and current MLA style, and of course you may access support materials online -- I will link you to these. DON'T FORGET, complete your introductory assignments very early the first week of the term. We have a lot of fun while we do it, but we cover a lot in our first week together!
