EAC English instructor Russell Tiedt to offer ENG 102 online this spring

By Jeanné Clark

THATCHER, AZ—Eastern Arizona College’s Communicative Arts Division recently announced that English instructor Russell Tiedt will be teaching the three-credit Written Communications II, commonly known as English 102, as an online class for the Spring 2009 semester. The pre-requisite for this class is Written Communications I (ENG 101).

“English 102 is required for almost everyone who wants to get a degree. If you’ve been looking for an alternate method of delivery, one that does not require you to spend time in the classroom but still offers you the complete educational experience of the English 102 class, then take my WebCT 102 class, and you can do the work whenever and wherever it is comfortable for you,” says Tiedt.

The class, transferrable to the university, covers research, fiction, and poetry. Students will write a research and argument essay. For the literature portion of the class, students will read a variety of works, including short stories and poetry, and learn how to write critical papers about such texts.

Even though students will not be required to regularly meet with the instructor for this online class, Tiedt will still be available to help students when they need it. “If you need some help to understand something, I will be available during my office hours, as well as by phone, E-mail and WebCT to answer all your questions,” says Tiedt.

Two sections of this class, sections #1621 and #1622, will be offered. Registration for the spring semester is underway, and classes will begin January 7. Space in the classes is limited, so students are encouraged to enroll as early as possible. To register, contact the Records and Registration Office at 428-8270, or register online at
