Prof GGP’s Fall 2011 online classes are English 103, Sections 0472 and 0556. English 103 focuses on the development of written communication to express logical, argumentative, and critical thinking through the examination of various texts, including essays, fiction, argument maps and multimedia presentations. One traditional class meeting will be held on Thursday, September 1, from 4:30 to 6 pm for the mandatory Orientation. Prof GGP will post the location for the English 103 Orientation in late August. The rest of the course will proceed online using LACC’s Etudes Portal, accessible at http://www.lacitycollege.edu via the For Students tab. You will not be able to log in for the course in Etudes until the beginning of classes. Instructions about how to log in may be found at http://www.lacitycollege.edu/online/Menu.htm. If you already know how to log in, you can go directly to https://myetudes.org/portal after August 29.
