English 151A Fundamentals of Composition - English Learning Center
The English 151A course has a lab component which consists of 25% of your grade (1 unit). The English Learning Center lab component requires that you complete two sets of assignments:
My Writing Lab - Your instructor will give you a lab packet which includes deadlines sheet, lab directions, My Writing Lab directions, and a student copy of the Deadlines and Record Form.
