Send Borger an email from your school email address. Her email address is: firstname.lastname@example.org. Follow proper email etiquette and form discussed in class. Put “Dual Credit English 101” in the subject line. In the body of the email provide information on each of the following:
- Why you took this course
- What you hope to gain from this course
- What your biggest apprehensions / anxieties are regarding writing
- What she should know about you as a learner
Emails are a homework assignment and will be given credit. Emails are due before the beginning of class on Friday08/23/13. Emails submitted after that time will earn 1/2 credit as per the Dual-Credit ENG 101 Syllabus.
Monday & Tuesday we will engage in a perception activity in class. Participation points apply toward your weekly homework points.
Monday, we will complete a journal entry:
08/19/19 What did you learn last year?
You do not have to copy down this prompt, but put the title in the center and underline it. Write down EVERYTHING you can remember learning in your English class last year….everything you can remember! If you don’t remember anything, start with that… then tell me what you have learned from English teachers in the past: stories/books/plays you’ve read, assignments you’ve completed, tests you’ve taken, papers written, etc. Do not write in the margins! WRITE FOR THE ENTIRE TIME UNTIL THE TIMER GOES OFF – NO TALKING WHILE WRITING!!
Wednesday you will be given an email assignment based on the perception activity due to Borger by Thursday 08/22.
Wednesday & Thursday we will engage in a Socratic Seminar discussion about prior learning for points.
Friday we will start composing our final exam meta-reflection (due December 20th in D2L).

“If you are used to whipping off papers the night before they’re due, running them quickly through the computer’s Spellchecker, handing them in full of high-school errors and sentences that make no sense and having the professor accept them ‘because the ideas are good’ or something, please be informed that I draw no distinction between the quality of one’s ideas and the quality of those ideas’ verbal expression, and I will not accept sloppy, rough-draftish, or semiliterate college writing. Again, I am absolutely not kidding….[This] is not just a Find-Out-What-The-Teacher-Thinks-And-Regurgitate-It-Back-at-[Them] course. It’s not like math or physics—there are no right or wrong answers (though there are interesting versus dull, fertile versus barren, plausible versus whacko answers).”

In August, 2017 I accepted a position teaching UCOL 101, the first-year experience course at SIU-Carbondale. I’m grateful for my time at SHS and will miss my students and colleagues, but am very excited about this next chapter in my life.
I will leave your course pages up for awhile so you can access past resources. Most of this information will still exist on this site after that time, but it might be in a different location. Check your course sites periodically or email me if you need to find something: email@example.com.
If you’re in the SIU neighborhood, come pop in for a visit. I’m in the Student Services Building on the first floor in Exploratory Student Advisement.
The day you give your persuasive speeches, Borger will send you a video link. View your persuasive speech first. Then go back and view your first two-three speeches of the semester. View each with the volume up. Then view them again with the volume down to focus exclusively on gestures, body language, etc. Take notes as you view.
On Wednesday and Thursday this week, Borger will conference with each of you. We’ll pull up the videos and you’ll talk about ways you think you’ve grown and how to improve in the future. Bring notes and all graded speeches with you to conferences. Conferences will be worth 100 points and will be added to your Speech grade.
Speaking order for speeches is below. It is important to be present for all speeches as audience members – not just to show up on the day you deliver your own speech. WALK INTO CLASS WITH 2 HARD COPIES OF YOUR OUTLINE. One for Borger and whaterver notes / outline you need for yourself. Outlines without works cited pages will receive a failing grade. Send me any audio / video presentational aids prior to your speaking hour so I can have those ready to go as well.

Work on finalizing your annotated bibliographies for your speeches. Once annotated bibs are complete, begin working on your outlines. Follow this template. Note: E. Method of Organization = the structure we talked about in conference. Demonstrative speech, definition, compare & contrast, etc. Include a works cited as the last page of your outline the day you speak.
Make sure you include transitions between points, citation information for quotes, references to presentation aids, a clear thesis in the intro, and clear summation at the end.
Final annotated bibs are due at the end of the day on Friday, 11/05.
Outline drafts are due at the beginning of the hour on Monday, 11/07.
Speaking order is below. You have 5-7 minutes for speeches. You will be cut off at 7:30, so rehearse, rehearse, rehearse.
Take notes over the speeches we watch in class using the Speech Viewing Handout.
Pay attention to organizational structure, the clear preview statements, transitions between points, oral citations of sources, summaries, and final statements:

- Nader Helmy NFL Speech Winner in Original Oratory in 2012
