                              ENGLISH 1301 LABS
The lab component for English 1301 provides a variety of opportunities to enhance your
thinking and writing ability. All students enrolled in English 1301 must complete 16 units (not
all from the same area) of lab work in order to fulfill the requirements of the course.
Approximately 30 minutes of your time constitutes one lab unit; however, lab credit is also
determined by the instructor, the length of an exercise, and the intended goal of the exercise.

Your course instructor will prescribe certain types of labs to meet your individual needs
and will give you credit for assignments related to the course. Your instructor will assign
various due dates for various types of labs. The Writing Center consultants will sign your
sheet for each session of consultation, usually a 30- to 45-minute appointment. The staff at the
Alternative Learning Center (ALC) desk will stamp the appropriate computer program and
video areas when you show an attendant that you have completed the exercise. If you attend
seminars, the instructor conducting the seminars will sign on your lab sheet.

Lab Credit can be earned by using the following resources:

              Computer Programs                            Video Programs
              CD ROMs or Exercises on Web                  Special Assignments
              Word Processing Programs                     Writing Center Consultation
