English Composition II, ENG 1121

I have not yet taught ENG 1121, English Composition II at the New York City College of Technology, CUNY (City Tech), where it is defined in the College Catalog as, “An advanced course in expository essay writing that requires a library paper. Further development of research and documentation skills (MLA style). Assigned literary and expository readings.”

However, I have taught a similarly sequenced course at Kent State University with a theme of “Cyborgs.”

I am currently designing a newly themed class based on our shared computing heritage and vintage computing.

Kent State

Essay 1, Cyborgs in Fiction
