(2) I will never forget his respect for a fine piece of writing. (3) As I listened to him I realized how fortunate we were to study English in a department that had a visiting lecturer series. (4) That year professors came from the University of B.C. to talk about the uses of metaphor, from the University of Victoria to talk about Mark Twain, and from the University of Toronto to talk about post- modernism. (5) The cost of the series was paid by a local foundation. (6) I wish more communities had this kind of support for their schools. - Begins as an informal paragraph - First talks about her lesson, then abruptly moves on to a different topic - Paragraph completely strays away from the topic sentence’s idea - On 3, they start on a different topic - By 4, completely lost - Downhill from there 3

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
