Welcome to College Writing

Hello everyone, and welcome to the class blog for ENG 110: College Writing. We’ll be sharing this space with two different sections, pandemic and all.

Here’s what you should do first:

1) If you have not done so for another class, sign up for a qwriting account (you do not need your own blog for this class, but you’re welcome to create one on the system).

2) Change your display name: When you write posts and leave comments, they will be signed with your username, which is what you use to log in to the Qwriting system. You should change your display name so instead of showing your username it shows your real name. To do that, log in and look to the upper right of your screen where you’ll see “Howdy, Username.” Click the dropdown to go to “Your Profile,” and then scroll down until you see the place to change your Display Name. Be sure to scroll all the way to the bottom to “Update Your Profile” and save your changes. Here’s more info: http://help.qwriting.qc.cuny.edu/customizing-your-display-name/

3) Familiarize yourself with the blog layout and the syllabus materials I’ve uploaded. You’ll find a link to the syllabus at the top along with assignments, policies, and the course schedule with links to all the readings. If you’re new to blogging, take a peek at some of the Qwriting help pages: http://help.qwriting.qc.cuny.edu/.

4) Leave a comment to this post when you’re all signed up and introduce yourself (like: give a first impression of the class, ask a question, tell us your favorite books or movies, or say what you hope to get out of the class).
