Student Information Sheet


Sample Final Essays

Here are two examples of final essays.  I scanned them from written papers, so they will print too large unless you set up for 30% size before you print them.



Welcome to the ENW 020 Libguides page!  Here you will find many useful resources such as downloadable Word documents and Internet links.  

The Syllabus is for INSTRUCTORS ONLY. Do not give a copy to your students. I included topics for tests and in-class writings.

Students at the W020 level are not expected to write more than 3 paragraphs.  Also, at this level, students do not have to write a separate introduction.  Instead, the first sentence of the essay can be the topic sentence, followed by background information in a narrative and the first reason for a topic in the 'reasons' essays.  Stronger students may be able towrite 4 paragraphs and include a separate introduction, but it is not expected at this level. Please contact me if you have any concerns.  

On the first day of class, it's very important to get a writing sample from students and ask them to fill out a student questionnaire. The writing samples will give you a good indication of a student's ability to succeed in the class. Look very carefully at the writing of students who are new to the college. If you notice that a new student's writing seems high or low for the level, please contact me about a possible level change.

IMPORTANT: Please inform your students that in addition to attend the lab, they are also required to attend two workshops. Their attendance will be verified on the lab attendance sheet.


Plagiarism Policy

Please review the plagiarism policy (found on the course information sheet) with your students at the beginning of the semester.  I also suggest reminding them of the policy prior to the midterm and final. Plagiarism is a serious offense.  Any student caught plagiarizing must receive a grade of 0.  If a student is caught plagiarizing on the Department final, in addition to receiving a failing grade for the semester, the student will be referred to the Dean of Student Affairs, who may take disciplinary action.
