Welcome to Composition at the Beach! CSULB’s composition program is committed to helping students develop the writing abilities needed to succeed in their academic careers, their future professions, their civic responsibilities, and their lives in general. This social networking site is rich with resources for composition instructors and students. Through the “Course Groups” tab, Composition at the Beach also serves as the portal for many courses: from First-Year Composition to Advanced Argumentation to our graduate course on Theories and Practices of Composition, the site presents the most up-to-date approaches to teaching writing today.
Students: Composition at the Beach is a social network with over 3,100 members. The site has been designed to complement your English classes, and many of your instructors have created course groups for you to join. DO NOT create your own group! Your instructor has already created the group, and you simply have to join it. You should look for your class under the “Course Groups” tab. Please keep in mind that this “Main” page is visible to everyone on the site. This means that anything you post to the main page or write in the main room chat feature can be seen by everyone: not just the people in your class. If you’d like to ask a question, be sure to identify your course number or instructor. To avoid confusion, please message your instructor or a classmate privately.
