FRCC ENG121 and PHI 112 Competencies and Syllabus
Learning communities are classes that are integrated with an interdisciplinary theme. Learning communities have been shown to increase student retention and academic achievement, increase student involvement and motivation, improve students’ time to degree completion, and enhance student intellectual development. Learning communities are also fun and engaging since they are focused on building community among students, between students and their teachers, and among faculty members and disciplines. As you will see, our learning community totally integrates ENG 121 and PHI 112. There is one set of assignments that count for both classes. Assignments, including major papers, are graded by both instructors.
