English Composition II

Spring 2016 Online

Welcome!

I am so grateful for the opportunity to work with you these next seven weeks. I have to admit to you that I love writing. It is such a versatile, expressive medium, one that we use daily, for all kinds of purposes. It allows us to communicate and connect with others, and also express our God-given individuality.


I understand that some people, perhaps, are intimidated by writing or they think that they “just aren’t good writers.” If that is you, I am so glad you are joining us! Writing is a skill that anyone can learn; it just takes practice. As we work together as a writing community, I hope you will gain confidence in your own skills, and also encourage your fellow classmates. Remember, we are in this together!



Please begin by working through the Jessup Online Student Orientation. Next, download and thoroughly read our Course Syllabus. Finally, please stop by the Introductions Forum and write something about yourself so we can get to know each other. When you've completed these steps, you'll be ready to go!



Again, welcome to the class!
