Instructor Comments :
Hello, class. In case you are wondering, online English 101 will not be available until Sunday, 1/10, at 5 p.m. You may log into your class at that time and see what is store for you in the first week. Meanwhile, let me tell you a little about the class. English 101 is a very time intensive and demanding college-level class that involves multiple essays (4 pages each), includes a major research paper (6-8 pages), and requires the MLA style in formatting essays and documenting sources. You should be fine as long as you devote a total of 4 hours each week to this class, pay close attention to instructions, and submit your assignments by the deadline. NO LATE ASSIGNMENTS--INCLUDING ESSAYS--ARE ACCEPTED.

Before you start this online course in the spring, you may want to get a head start and do some required readings. Purchase the reader (relatively slim volume), "Mirror on America: Essays and Images from Popular Culture." Bedford/St. Martin's Press, 4th ed. ISBN 0312613571. MAKE SURE IT'S THE FOURTH EDITION. Start reading chapter 1 and 3. The first week's assignment has to do with chapter 1, and the 2nd week's more time-consuming assignment involves chapter 3.

4 REQUIRED TEXTBOOKS (smart to buy them in advance):

ONE--Philip Eggers. Steps for Writers: Composing Essays Volume Two. Pearson Longman. 2007. ISBN 0321198824.

TWO (bundled together with the #3 book for a lower price available at the Valley College Bookstore)--Elizabeth Nollen and Joan Mims. Mirror on America: Essays and Images from Popular Culture. Bedford/St. Martin's Press, 4th ed.

THREE--Marcia F. Muth. Research and Writing. Bedford/St. Martin's Press, 1st ed.

FOUR--Chang-Rae Lee. Aloft. ISBN 1-59448-070-2
