Spring 12 Engl 250

Welcome to English 250 in Spring 2012.

Textbooks for this course are Everything's and Argument, fifth edition, by Lunsford and Ruszkiewicz and A Pocket Style Manual, by Hacker and Sommers.

The links at the top of this page connect you to your course schedule, syllabus, and (eventually) your grades.  The links at the left of the page are for the major essays we will write during the semester.

I have not loaded all of the assignments or exercises, and I will not load them all until the class is ready to address the assignment.  I will tell you in class when those links are live.


To sell your ideas to your peers, to your management, to your customers, you must, and I stress MUST, be able to communicate.  One of the reasons Sir Isaac Newton was famous in physics was because he could communicate.
