Welcome to Fall 2013!

Dear SJSU 100a Students,

I am looking forward to helping you achieve your goals this semester! Please note that I use this blog and my website for all of my college courses, so there is no need to read through any other posts here (Of course, feel free to browse all you want!).

What I do need you to do is to download your course syllabus and order the Course Reader.

Please purchase the 100a Reader at the link below TODAY. You should buy the print version, which comes with a free digital version. You will need both the print (to bring with you to class) and the digital (to complete online homework assignments). Order the print version today to insure that you have the Reader when we begin using it in class. 

I have posted a copy of the English 100a course syllabus for this semester at the following link. If you lose your copy during the semester, then please download and print another copy. Please click this link and scroll down to the attachments (at the bottom of the page) to download your class fall 2013  course syllabus. All students are required to print and bring a copy of the course syllabus to the first day of class and to each subsequent meeting. 

Together, we will make this a great semester!
