Sample Materials

Like English 131, English 109 and 110 are portfolio based classes. Since the portfolio system allows students to select writing which best represents their progress in the course, you should develop a sequence which matches up with some of the learning goals and outcomes found earlier in this manual. Have your 109 students save  electronic copies of their 109 portfolio in case their 110 instructor wants to revisit these assignments.

We also encourage you to have your students free-write in class and outside of class. In these pages you will find several types of sample assignment sequences, syllabi, calendars, and related activities.
