Using Sequences in Your Classroom

posted: 10.13.10 by Barclay Barrios

This post is part of a continuing series on building a course around the textbook Emerging. For previous posts in the series, see here.

Generally speaking, you will only be able to complete one sequence of assignments in the course of a semester. You may want to select a sequence based on the readings, the theme, or current events in the world.

All of the sequences included in Emerging have four to six assignments, which represent the minimum and maximum requirements for our writing courses at FAU.  Four assignments allow for more revision; six assignments provide constant practice with writing.

Given the demands of your program, you may want to adapt your selected sequence, adding or removing assignments as needed.
