2018 UWHS 131 Orientation Materials

UWHS 131 Orientation

 Welcome to the ENGL 131 training website! Below are the materials we ask you to peruse prior to the June 1-2 training. We ask, especially, that you read the ENGL 131 Portfolio and spend a bit of time (but no more than an hour) using the rubric to give it a tentative grade. We'll norm the portfolio together at the training.

Miller Hall, room 104
Boxed lunches will be provided.
