English 101, section 2162 at MJC

Basic Information for Summer 2015 English 101

I will have the full syllabus posted soon. I may take some students from the waitlist depending on how many no-shows I have on the first day. If you are not physically in class on time on day 1, you will be dropped.

It’s going to be very important to have your books in the first week as we are on a very tight schedule. The 5 week time period means you are going to be KILLING IT in this class. So if you don’t have time to devote to outside reading, writing, and visits to the Writing Center, this may not be the section for you.

The MJC bookstore should have our books.

You must have the fifth edition of the Everyday Writer by Lunsford. The fourth won’t do. Check used bookstores, Amazon, and Craigslist.

The Quiet Time, written by MJC professor Dimitri Keriotis, will be needed at the latest in week 2. This is a newer book, so there may not be used available on Amazon.

Other materials you will need:
  1. A notebook (spiral or composition), at least 70 pages.
  2. Two large Greenbooks (8 ½ by 11)
  3. Writing utensils (pen is preferred)
  4. A Google Drive Account (if you have Gmail, you already have this, otherwise sign up for an account with whatever email address you have that’s appropriate for communicating with bosses or professors)
