    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I mainly recommend this course because it is a class that is required for all college freshmen. Also, it is a good course to help you understand what English courses will be like on a college level. It is almost the same as high school but it has much higher expectations and more fast paced. It can be a challenging class but it is only as challenging as you make it.

    Course highlights:

    This course mainly revolves around reteaching basic grammar, writing and reading comprehension skill. Many of the things taught in this course should have been things that were brought up in high school also. You are also writing several essays in a shorter time period than in secondary school which could contribute to the course's difficulty level.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Time management is key towards success in this course. Due to numerous essays assigned and the time period to complete them, you would want to manage your time wisely to complete them. Also in the beginning of the semester, you are given access to a syllabus for the course. Read and keep up with this syllabus for the remainder of the semester!! This syllabus is important when you have questions about the course or a specific assignment. It also tells you what to expect when finals come along and how you will be graded. In high school, a syllabus is usually thrown away directly after receiving it, but in college they are very important so keep them!

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I definitely would recommend this course and this professor. She could be harsh, but she was thorough. English 101 helped you prepare your writing and speaking skills for the higher classes. Everyone does not realize that you can't write as you speak. Writing is harder than it looks once you get started. This course shows you the little things that are overlooked when people are writing major papers. That's why colleges make this course mandatory. You can't write a proper essay further in school or in the professional world without the fundamentals that is offered in English 101. Professor Cooper makes that point and helps to guide you through that course to achieve those writing skills without "cracking your fingers".

    Course highlights:

    I was able to put my thoughts into words on paper. Writing was a release from pented up feelings and I was able to see myself clearly once I could read my thoughts on paper. This course helped you to learn some things about yourself. Writing puts things into a different perspective than what you assume it was.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    You definitely need this course. It is mandatory within all colleges. Find outside study guides and talk with your professor constantly about where your mistakes are and what you can do to make it better. Most importantly, pay attention to what you are writing. Remember, those are your thoughts and that's what people are going to think about you when they read them.
