Title: ENGL 155-01, First Year Writing Seminar: Daily Themes, Fall 2011
Authors: Finlayson, Rebecca
Keywords: English, Department of;Syllabus;Curriculum;Academic departments;Text;2011 Fall
Issue Date: 25-Aug-2011

Series/Report no.: Syllabi CRN;12702
Abstract: The text for this class is The New Yorker magazine, which I will distribute on Thursdays for the following week’s reading. If the NY does not arrive in time, I will leave them outside my office for you to pick up asap (check your email). You will read approximately two essays for each class, and we typically will decide as a class which essays we’ll read. I reserve the option of assigning an article from a previous issue either electronically or by hard copy. The New Yorker is an intellectual magazine, known for its accomplished writing. As such, it is sometimes challenging to read. You’ll want to set aside at least 6-8 hours each week outside of class for reading essays and writing themes. Your magazine pages should be marked with your notes and questions because you’ll be expected to contribute your comments in class (and you will need these notes as you write your themes). Because of the nature of the weekly primary text, I will make many spontaneous announcements in class and via email. Make sure that you get this information and write it on your syllabus. You are responsible for knowing what we are reading. Please check your Rhodes email daily.
