College English 105--Assignments

  • Unit 1: Reading and Writing

    "The role of a writer is not to say what we can all say, but what we are unable to say."

    ~Anais Nin
    Writing Focus: Short Narrative Writing 
    You will be reading the novels The Kite Runner and A Thousand Splendid Suns (both by Khaled Hosseini) throughout the first 30 days of the school year. You will have to purchase these novels, as I do not have enough for the exceptionally large class this year. We will be reading these novels for a compare/contrast essay. The reading will be completed on your own throughout the first 4-6 weeks of school. Please manage your time appropriately. In addition, please see Google classroom for information on renting/purchasing your textbook for the year.  

    "A student's obligation to himself is as great as, or greater than, a teacher's obligation to her students."
