The work for this three-credit course involves class attendance on campus ( five two-hour sessions before the trip; three two-hour sessions after the trip). Reading and discussing assigned texts; journal writing in response to readings before the trip; journal writing on-location tailored to site-specific subjects or stories heard on-location; discussing ideas learned on-location from viewing artifacts and ancient architecture; one research paper, oral presentation, and evaluation to be completed after the trip.


If you choose to audit the class, you need not do any course work, but –like the students who will take the course for 3 credits--  you have to register at MCC for Eng 106-LO1 for Spring, 2006.
