English 1302 Summer 2018 Reading List

English 1302: Assigned Readings List

In this class, we do not have a required textbook.  The majority of your readings this semester will come from two areas - literary works and composition content.  The following four sites contain most of your assigned readings.  (Select the title to visit each site.)

Project Gutenberg

All of the literary works you will read this semester are available in text format at the Project Gutenberg website.  This is a website dedicated to making public domain readings freely accessible.  Project Gutenberg also has a free app available for download; you can search for it in your app store.

LibriVox

The majority of the literary works you will read this semester are also available in audio format at the LibriVox website.  LibriVox also has a free app available for download; search for it in your app store.

The Purdue Online Writing Lab (OWL) and The Writing Center at UNC-Chapel Hill

The majority of your composition content readings will come from these two stellar university resources.  

Rather than rely on a bulky, expensive course textbook, we will be using freely available course readings materials in this class this semester.  Here you will find the full links to the majority of our assigned course readings.  Essentially, this list is your course "textbook."

Keep in mind that each of these readings will also be listed in the content pages of our course.  This list is simply provided here so you can easily find all of the links in one place, if necessary.
