For Writing 1

The Tuesday and Thursday Section, Meeting from 3:00 - 4:50 p.m.

If you are in Christopher Dean's Writing 01 class that meets from 3 - 4:50 p.m. on TR at UCSB for the Fall 2007 quarter, then you are at a "home" you have in cyberspace.

This page has important links to your syllabus, if you lose the paper copy I give you, materials we will be using in class, and websites that will be part of your work inside and outside of class. If you miss a class, contact a classmate, look at this page, and email me as needed.

Again, welcome, and if you need to contact me, then email me at cdean@writing.ucsb.edu. I look forward to working with you this semester--both face-to-face and in cyberspace
