Orientation to ENGL 1010 Online:  Orientation to ENGL 1010 Online Spring 2008 – Prof. Jackson (No sound) Welcome to ENGL 1010:  Welcome to ENGL 1010 In this class, we are going to write more than you probably ever thought was possible in a fifteen week class. But, this is one of the most important classes you will take at PSTCC, as it prepares you to survive the writing in all the other classes you have to take – and there is tons of writing in your future as a scholar! Materials You Need:  Materials You Need Three books: One Piece of Software – MS Word, any version: No exceptions, I will not track down a bunch of different software to open your papers. And, you will need Word to read my comments about your papers. Other Stuff You Need (free):  Other Stuff You Need (free) PDF Reader (Adobe Acrobat or something similar) Power Point Viewer (available at Microsoft.com) Macromedia Flash ***Warning for Mac users: I cannot supply you with any form of tech support. You must call the help desk for any problems you encounter. Navigating the Class: News :  Navigating the Class: News Our class is broken into weekly units. Each week you will have something to read, write and discuss. To know what to do, first read the news items when you sign into class: I will post a list of what to do each week here, along with links and other important information. Navigating the Class: Content:  Navigating the Class: Content This link, labeled 'course content' will lead you to the outline of our course. Virtually everything you need can be found here. Along with the course tools (which we will use all semester), you will find an outline of what to do each week contained here. There are links to the weekly lecture, reading assignment, discussion board and whatever assignment is due that week. Navigating the Course: Course Tools:  Navigating the Course: Course Tools Be sure to print and read the entire syllabus. It is very, very important. In case you forget who your classmates are, you can read and re-read their introductions here. If you are unhappy with your grade, you can find ways to get extra credit here. We use MLA format exclusively in this class. You will find helpful stuff under this link. Course Tools are updated as needed throughout the semester. Be sure to check them often. Navigating the Course: Discussions:  Navigating the Course: Discussions This link will lead you to our discussion boards. Each week, you are required to enter into a discussion of some sort in which you are to make 3 replies – one initial reply of 200 words, and two replies to your peers of 100 words. Peer Reviews also take place on the discussion boards. Navigating the Course: Dropboxes:  Navigating the Course: Dropboxes This link will lead you to the dropboxes, where you will submit the final drafts of all your essays. Once graded, your essays may be picked up from the dropbox in which they were submitted. Formatting Your Essays:  Formatting Your Essays Use MLA format (more on this in week 2) Times New Roman 12 pt Font 1' Margins .doc or .docx files ONLY Just name your files 'firstname Essay' (ex. Katie Response Essay) – I love creative expression, however, elearn (d2l) does not. 'Special' characters such as andamp; *^#$@! and even sometimes . can make elearn go crazy. Each paper must have a writer’s log in which you may tell me anything you like (hopefully about your writing process). Include this at the end of your essay, just after the Works Cited. Course Ground Rules:  Course Ground Rules We will be discussing controversial topics - approach them with an open mind. Closed mindedness will not be tolerated. No flaming – play nice and do not be easily offended. Humor is always appreciated – PLEASE make us laugh. Turn your work in on time – late work is a major no-no NO EXCUSES – Please do not email me any excuses. I have heard them all. Take responsibility for your work and get it done when it is due. Have fun with this class! It does not have to be dull. Write about topics that inspire, infuriate or thrill you. It’s all what you make it.
