English 102 Online
Winter Quarter, 2002

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.)

Resources and Guidelines for Online Students

Tips for Success in This Course

  • Check the class's ConnectWeb site for announcements and updates every day or two throughout the quarter.

  • Regularly participate in class discussions and activities.  The members of this class form a community of writers and learners. Becoming a part of that community is an essential aspect of accomplishing the goals of  this course. 

  • Keep up with the reading and the writing assignments.  Although this is an online course, it is not a self-paced independent course.  

  • Post messages and questions (via the email and discussion board in our  ConnectWeb site) as they occur to you throughout the quarter.  Chances are, if you have a question, others share it, and all will benefit from the discussion it provokes.
