I have tried simply to write the best I can. Sometimes I have good luck and write better than I can. – Hemingway

English 101 Online is a course designed to help you write effectively at the college level. You will read, analyze, and write essays using a variety of rhetorical strategies, as well as develop and express ideas clearly and effectively. Performing competently at this level requires skills in critical reading and thinking, and the ability to accurately analyze what will make your writing more effective in any given context. Writing is a process which includes brainstorming, prewriting, peer editing, drafting and publishing. It requires patience, time and commitment. Since a great deal of the work involves a dialog between you and other students, it is imperative to post submissions in a timely manner.


Many students have the misconception that online classes require less work.

Although online courses do allow for flexibility of time spent on class work, they require a significant time commitment. Furthermore, work deadlines still exist. A general rule of thumb for a 5-credit class would be 10 hours of work per week. You need to determine if you have the organizational skills and motivation to meet those demands.

The first week of the quarter will be spent on activities that will demonstrate your ability to navigate the online environment. The Angel Week Zero tutorial should be completed on or before Day One. (If you have visited the tutorial previously, a brief revisit is strongly advised.)

Finally, read all course materials completely. (Reading them more than once is a good idea. They can also be printed for future reference.)

Prerequisite: Accuplacer score of 86 or higher on the Sentence Skills and 85 or higher on Reading.


The 11-week course will be divided into three major “Modules” and a “Final.” Modules may extend from a day or two to several weeks. It is important to get an overview of each module as it begins. This will give you an idea of the work involved and how you might need to organize your time. Each module will define the minimum expectations for student postings.
