From the Instructor:
This is an online writing course that emphasizes the autobiographical writing necessary for scholarship essays. Students must sign up for the online CG105 course concurrently, as the two sections are co-requisites. Short (maximum one-page) journal assignments are due every week. Students will complete at least two actual scholarship essays, as well as a personal statement to keep as a resource for other applications. To succeed in an online course, students must be independent learners and self-disciplined. No in-person testing is required; face-to-face conferences with the instructor can be arranged by appointment.
