Writing Assignments

English 3 is a Freshman Writing course, and we'll spend much of our time finding ways to improve our writing.

As noted in the Course Requirements, there will be six short assignments (one or two pages) and three longer papers (four or more pages) in addition to regular and active class participation.

I've ordered no textbook on writing; instead, I've prepared a hypertext guide to grammar and style I expect all my students to know well. The syllabus occasionally refers to particular articles in this guide, and on those days you'll should be ready to talk about the issues at hand.
