Instructor comments:

Students should purchase the texts before the term starts.  They are available at PCC's SE campus bookstore.  You may request they be delivered to one of the other campus bookstores or mailed to you (contact the bookstore to arrange this).  However, the first assignment based on a reading is due the second week of the term and you do not have time to wait for a book to be delivered, so please plan ahead.   Students who do not live locally should order texts now.  If finances are tight, buy these books first: "The Arabian Nights," "Pride and Prejudice," and the Diana Hacker "Pocket Style Manual."  NOTE:  Several of the texts are available only through the bookstore (such as "The Arabian Nights"), but other maybe found at your local library or second-hand bookstore (such as "Pride and Prejudice").  One is available online: the Woolf essay.  And one copy of each text is available from the PCC library (request it now or you'll find a classmate aleady has it).

The syllabus for the class is posted in D2L online and will be available at midnight on Sunday, Jan. 8.  Please read through the syllabus and contact the instructor if you have any questions.  If you want to get a headstart on the work, read "The Arabian Nights."

Students must log in to the class on the first day of the term or contact the instructor if unable to do so.  Students who do not check in will be dropped as "no shows" to make room for students on the wait list who want to add the class.

If you have questions, feel free to contact me at gay.monteverde@pcc.edu.  I look forward to working with you this term.
