English Composition I at New Jersey City University (NJCU) is designed to prepare students to meet the requirements of writing for university course work. The course learning objectives focus on the achievement of basic communicative skills in reading, writing, speaking, and listening. Instead of completing a traditional essay and/or oral presentation as the signature assignment for the course, students were asked to build a website using skills honed over the course of the semester in both traditional and non-traditional assignments. The students then presented their sites to their classmates, Dr. Fisch, and Mr. Ward; they discussed their visions and goals for the sites, design choices, the difficulties they encountered, and what they enjoyed.
