It emphasizes the interdependence of human, plant and animal biology and the environment. This course will function as a seminar and hands-on laboratory workshop - with assigned readings from the journals, periodicals nd the internet. Students will be expected to choose an issue to further research and present their findings as a poster board and/or class presentation.
Themes from CIS 101, such as issues surrounding the use of computer technology, will be incorporated into ENG 120 at several junctures during the semester. Likewise, ENG 120 thems, such as persuasion, argumentation, and analysis through writing, will be a significant part of the work students do in CIS 101. Both courses will emphasize the presentation of the self through the written word, the social changes wrought by virtual communication, internet research, and internet publication.
