Lecture 1: Opening Remarks
I want to welcome all of you to class, and let you know I am happy you decided to enroll in this course. My goals for you are very straightforward, and I believe you should adopt them as your goals. You should demonstrate improvement in your writing, analytical skills, grammar, punctuation, and course-management skills.
Work closely with lecture 2; it is a quick way to square your prose with the academic prose style I am teaching, and it will lead to much higher grades. It is also imperative that you not only read, but study the course syllabus, for to do otherwise would be to set yourself up for problems that could have been easily avoided.
I sincerely look forward to working with you this semester, and please do not hesitate to contact me with questions or concerns. My office hours change each semester, so you should consult the course syllabus for this semester's hours. Although you can certainly drop by unannounced, I am often called out of my office for departmental meetings, and it would be unfortunate if you made a trip to campus only to find a note on my office door. I encourage you to make an appointment, and always try to bring a copy of your work in progress.
Welcome to class.
