ENGL 1101 Textbook Initiative: Open
Tapestry

Potential resources for GPC's ENGL 1101 Textbook initiative. (ARCHIVE)

Pros/Cons

Content appropriate for what we need: grammar, rhetoric, MLA.

Can print individual pages/lessons, but not whole "book?"

Interesting visual presentation, shows first page of lesson instead of topics.

Each chapter has a tack bubble that comes up in the right hand margin. It gives students some direction and estimated time for completion.

Wide variety of modes, giving faculty numerous options for assignments.

Draws from other sources.

Creative Commons share-alike license, but unclear how we would edit it.
