Required Texts

There are no texts required for purchase in this class. All readings will be made available either online through the course plan or via the library’s resources. Consult the course plan for more information.

Please note: While no books are required for purchase, it is strongly recommended that you obtain or secure access to a collegiate level dictionary and thesaurus (I recommend the handy combination of both in the Oxford Pocket Dictionary and Thesaurus, American Edition, ISBN 0-19-513097-9), and a style manual for written English such as the classic Elements of Style by Strunk and White (Fourth Edition, Allyn & Bacon, ISBN 0-205-30902) Regular access to and use of such references will be assumed.
