Instructor notes: This section of ENGL 100 is a fully online course. This section will be taught with an environmental theme or focus — specifically, human ecology. Ecology is a branch of biology devoted to studying the interaction of organisms with each other and their environment. Human ecology turns the focus on our own species. The objective of this course is to improve your writing and reading skills, and I have found this is best accomplished by unifying the semester’s assignments and lessons under a common theme. The way we interact with our environment is a topic of concern and controversy. It has political, economic, health, security, and international implications. It is an issue under which every human becomes unavoidably linked. An issue that is so far reaching makes a perfect vehicle for reading, researching, and writing.
