- From the Instructor:
- Dear WR 122 Students: I'm excited to work with you this term in our online class. I sent out the syllabus via your PCC email so that you can ask me any questions and get a sense of the course even before it begins. The welcome email that I sent out is my more detailed welcome -- it contains my contact information and other attachments relevant to the course. You may have noticed that this class is a community-based learning class. This basically means that you'll be writing about community issues that you actually care about and doing something out in the community that relates to those issues so that you have first-hand knowledge and evidence to write about -- great concept, right? To see a little bit of my own writing (and my students' writing) on education (the community theme that is most important to me and my work), check out my education blog at www.pdxean.wordpress.com. Again, welcome to WR 122. This is a great class for students who enjoy the challenge of growing as writers and group members, for students who are interested in writing about things that are important to them, and for those who want a dynamic, engaging fall term! Welcome, welcome, welcome. And see you soon when class begins!
