Outlines and handouts for Professional Communication (PC) and English (ENGL) courses I regularly taught are provided, for the time being at least.
Note: I retain this page as a reminder of my years of full-time teaching at Tech (1987-2010) plus my years of post-retirement work (2011-2013); many of the elements of this page, including numerous links to academic matters, have been changed or eliminated, but matters related to birds and butterflies remain mostly intact.
