Reading Response Retake Opportunities

posted Oct 24, 2016, 5:54 PM by J. Tirrell   [ updated Oct 26, 2016, 6:00 PM ]

Any student who attends one of the English Studies Day 2016 panels on Thursday, Nov. 10, can submit a one-page write up of it, which will allow the student to retake one Reading Response (students may not submit multiple write ups and retake multiple Reading Responses).

Additionally, any student who presents at the English in Action Showcase will be allowed to retake one Reading Response.

In-class Reading Responses may be retaken by scheduling an appointment with the instructor (preferably during office hours); out-of-class Reading Responses may be retaken by emailing the instructor. All retakes must be completed by November 29.

Welcome to ENG 204-008: Introduction to Professional Writing

Welcome to ENG 204-008: Introduction to Professional Writing with Dr. Jeremy Tirrell. This is a hybrid course, which means that ordinarily we will have one period in our classroom (on Tuesday from 9:30am–10:45am in MO 204) and one period online. Hybrid courses require more online interaction and self-governance than standard sections.

The course flows through this website, so it is crucial that you thoroughly familiarize yourself with it. Because much of your work will be independent, you should pay particular attention to the Calendar page, as it articulates the schedule of activities and provides links to corresponding materials. Additionally, the Home page collects updates and news that you should know, the Syllabus page describes course policies, and the Assignments page contains information about course projects and ancillary work.

Again, welcome to the course! I hope you find it challenging and rewarding. If you have any questions, feel free to email me through tirrellj@uncw.edu.
