EAC offers three summer-long English classes starting May 26

By Jeanné Clark

THATCHER, AZ—Eastern Arizona College’s Communicative Arts Division will offer three English classes this summer: Writing Fundamentals—ENG 100 (section #7185), Written Communications—ENG 101 (section #7129), and Written Communications II—ENG 102 (section #7184). “Rather than running for only one of EAC’s summer sessions, these classes will run for a full ten weeks in order to make the experience less stressful for students,” says the instructor of both classes, Rebecca Jarvis. “Students who might otherwise fear a summer course because it goes too fast will be attracted to these courses.”

All three classes will start on May 26 and run through July 31, 2009. Writing Fundamentals—ENG 100 will meet Monday and Wednesday evenings from 7 to 9 p.m. in Academic Programs Building—Room #121, and will focus on narrative and argumentative writing, drawing on students’ life experiences.

The second class, Written Communications II—ENG 102, which will focus on writing about research and literature relevant to social issues in students’ lives, will meet Monday and Wednesday afternoons from 3 to 5 p.m. “English 102 is a required class for most degrees at EAC,” says Jarvis. “Whether you want to get caught up or get ahead, these summer English classes are ideal. The class sizes are smaller, and there’s plenty of one-on-one help available for students. Please consider taking one of these classes this summer.”

English 101 will be offered online.
