Completion of English 101 or its equivalent with a C or higher. Prerequisites must be verified before being added to this class. Follow a timely educational plan: under new LA Community College District (LACCD) policy, only 3 Wís or Fís are allowed. The total LACCD enrollment limit is 90 units.
Attendance is required and participation is essential. Read the assigned works carefully before every meeting, and be prepared to discuss them. Homework on the readings is due daily.
English 102 is designed to sharpen your understanding and appreciation of the great art of literature. It introduces you to literary vocabulary, traditions, and innovations, and it teaches you how to analyze literary works. We begin with poetry, build up on the skills of close reading with drama, then study short stories, and conclude with a short novel. No grammar is covered in this class, but it does count. If you need support, seek tutoring at the Center for Academic Success (see below) or see me. Rough drafts may also be submitted before an essay is due for review.
