Hi Students! I am a teacher at Northern Virginia Community College and this semester will be teaching Hybrid English 111 plus ENF 3 on Thursdays.
Welcome to ENG 111-16A College Composition I and ENF 3-16A . ENG 111 is a college-level course in writing while ENF 3 is a non-credit course that provides support for students who need additional help with writing.
These two classes are offered as an Alexandria Campus hybrid class that meets for 2 1/2 hours one day a week with online assignments for the other hours of class time. You must plan to attend the class meetings on Thursday, 8:00-10:20 p.m in AA472. The online assignments can completed whenever you choose during the week up to the due date, but you should expect to log on to our class on Blackboard minimum of twice a week to complete work and to access updates and message. Students should check their NVCC email account at least once a week for individual messages. Homework is assigned each week. A general guideline is to expect 3 hours of homework for each credit hour of class.
In these courses, you will learn how to write college papers for an audience of teachers and peers. This semester all of the writing and research will be based on a single theme–health and healthcare. Most people in this class should have a strong opinion on at least one topic related to this theme. Also, material on this theme should readily available for research and writing. In this class, you will do mainly expository and argumentative essays on this class theme.
You will learn by reading the writing of other people, researching topics of your choice, and drafting and revising your own writing. Learning activities will include class sessions on Thursday, 8:00-10:20 in Room AA472, and group work on Blackboard to review the writing of other students whenever you choose during the week up to the due date.
What you learn in this course will benefit you by helping you write more clearly and effectively for college and work
