Details about this class

Welcome to English 104. My name is Andrea Hills, and this is such a fun class to teach! The focus is on short stories from a variety of time periods, cultures and author backgrounds. As short stories don't take long to read (and there's an option to listen to many of them), it's a great way to explore elements of fiction and learn a lot about different writers, cultures, and types of writing.

This class is an asynchronous class, where students work individually at their own pace each week. While students are encouraged to connect with the teacher via Zoom for individual conferences, this class does not require weekly Zoom meetings or any in-person attendance.


 This class does not require any special technology outside of the basic technology needed for any PCC online class.
