This page will be your source for access to on-line information (assignments, e-handouts,
help sites, etc.), an on-line version of the syllabus and class policies, as well as other
nefarious Web hooplah. E-mail and class listserves, as it turns out, are best not
accessed from Netscape, but rather directly from the e-mail program (selectable from the menu
bar on the desktop).
Currently, this site is still under construction; it will be more developed, but never
since I will often update information on upcoming assignments on a regular basis (so, parts of
it will always be in a state of perpetual change).
everyone in the class has a little more Web experience, I will expect you to check this
site regularly for such updates, as well as eventually contribute material of your own to the
For various reasons (the usual doldrums as
well as the fact that this is my first time teaching in the NWE, etc.), I've decided that
the class needs an overhaul. Hence, I refer you all to The New Plan for the class. Once/If we agree on this new
direction, it will override the previous grading criteria described on the old Class Policies sheet. I will also ammend the on-line
Course Syllabus. Hopefully, all this commotion will
not disrupt things irretrievably, and will help make class more interesting.
PAY ATTENTION TO YOUR PAPER'S FORMAT: I have received papers
which are single-spaced; too lightly printed; with wider margins than stipulated;
with misplaced and/or incorrect headers and/or multiple-page headers. AFTER MONDAY, 15
SEPTEMBER, ANY PAPER NOT MEETING ALL THE PHYSICAL FORMAT REQUIREMENTS STIPULATED
IN THE "FORMATTING" SECTION OF THE CLASS POLICIES SHEET/SITE WILL BE RETURNED
WITHOUT BEING READ, AND WILL BE CONSIDERED A LATE ASSIGNMENT. No ifs, ands, buts, or excuses.
- E-mail archives! Yes, all the e-mail that
your 1101 section has sent out to each other on the listserve(s) is available in
archived form, so you can review it (and maybe delete some from your e-mail

LATEST ASSIGNMENT(S): Henceforth, assignments can be checked on the
Assignments page. See also the Old Assignments
HOME ACCESS: If you have a computer at home and wish to access your
1101 account from there, the NWE page has information on
how to do so in their FAQs(Frequently Asked Questions) site. Since there are almost
uncountable different systems out in e-dom, there is no standard answer to "How
do I get to this from home?" You will most likely have to physically bring
yourself to campus, access the NWE here, and either print out the info or record
the website and try that from home.
NWE HANDBOOK: A handbook for the NWE -- filled with information,
FAQs, etc. -- is available on-line. USE IT. If you would like a paper ("hard") copy,
you can purchase one at Goering's Book Store on University Avenue (the
north-east-most corner of campus) for $15.
Whenever you encounter problems using either e-mail or Netscape (for the
WWW), try some troubleshooting of your own: open Netscape, and when the NWE page appears, access
either route to the FAQs (Frequently Asked Questions) site. The NWE staff have
anticipated many of the difficulties you may experience, and have provided
answers and solutions. If you don't find an applicable FAQ, you can always e-mail
them from that site (their link works).
