English classes range from developmental reading and writing, to college-level freshman classes including composition and rhetoric, technical and creative writing to sophomore literature. Several classes are offered via LSC-Online. Technology is an integral part of the classroom experience.
Our students come from diverse backgrounds, with multi-faceted needs, and hopes for an education. As teachers, we value lifelong and academic literacies, hoping to inspire students to seek knowledge for its own sake and solve problems for personal and practical applications. Because we are experienced guides, we urge students to take agency and control of their learning, but we also hope to become partners in this learning. We wish to help them understand themselves as students at various stages of their education and show them how to make choices for their education, whether on campus or through LSC-Online.
