For Writing 02, Spring Quarter 2007

Class time: MW 3-4:50 p.m.

If you are in Christopher Dean's Writing 02 class, which meets from 3-4:50 p.m. on Mondays and Wednesdays in the Spring 2007 quarter, then you are at a "home" you have in cyberspace.

This page has important links to your syllabus, 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 quarter--both face-to-face and in cyberspace.
