Friday (Aug. 24) and Monday (Aug. 27) Game-plan

ENGL 101 Students

Friday, August 24


Instead, you should log on to our Blog Site: (you’re already here).

There you will find that I have uploaded a site page (it can be found on the top bar on the second row or near the end next to MLA Formatting) a section called They Say, I Say Chapters. In here I have uploaded a digital copy of the Introduction from an older text of the book. For attendance counting purposes for Friday I would like you to read that chapter and complete the TWO exercises at the end.

Type of your exercises into a MS Word document and then, go to Moodle.

In our main course shell you will find an assignment telling you to upload your paper to that forum, containing your answers before 11:59 PM on Friday, August 24th.

You will be given another assignment on Monday, keep an eye out for it in Monday’s Week 3 posting.

Monday, August 27


I will not be present, but I want someone to pass around and take attendance. A member of the Career Development Office will be coming to speak to you.

In addition, and I will post it on the blog,, where I will have you look at a visual image/page from a comic book.

You will then attempt, using descriptive and vivid detail, to paint a picture of that picture using words. I am looking for a nice sized paragraph (4-5 sentences) minimum. You will type this up in MS Word document and upload that document to another Moodle Assignment link that I will have up in our Moodle Course Shell for you.

This will be done before 11:59 PM on Monday, August 27.

More details to come for this Sunday night.


If there are any questions or issues that arise, I can be reached via email, so please ask questions if needed.
