Below is a list of the MCCCD official course competencies for the ENG101 First Year Composition course. Our goal this semester is to satisfy these seven competencies. In order to show that you have reached this goal, you will keep an electronic portfolio where you will provide examples of your work that demonstrate your competence. You will also be required to write several personal reflections on your work. What follows are the guidelines for the electronic portfolios.
