Course Description

English 102 is the second of three courses in College of DuPageís one-year composition sequence. This second course focuses on developing students' experience in reading, thinking and writing critically. Students write essays that demonstrate their ability to analyze and evaluate the ideas of others, and to integrate those ideas into their own writing. English 102 also reinforces the students' experience with the conventions of standard written English and introduces students to the methods of research and the conventions of documentation. Additionally, students will explore the ways in which computers, networks, and hypertext influence the writing process. (Three Credit Hours. Prerequisite: English 101.)

Overview of Thematic Units

We will be exploring five thematic units together this quarter.  A full overview of our first unit on Storytelling is already available.  The others include some links for reading and exploration, but will not become fully active until we reach them in our schedule.  Please note that specific assignments, along with their due dates, will be announced online (in our ConnectWeb environment) and in class throughout the quarter.  Students in the Honors Section will create webbed essays for at least one project this quarter.  The webbed essays may be individually or collaboratively authored.  Class time in the lab will be devoted to guiding and supporting composition of sites.
