    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I looked forward to going to his class every class. Professor Dunnigan was not so focused on grammar and mechanics and the little details; he really wanted his students to learn how to express themselves with their words. During our open discussions during class, he encouraged open and free dialogue and respected people's opinions.

    Course highlights:

    During lab time with Prof. Dunnigan and the Writing Fellow, we discussed the components that make up the introduction, thesis, conclusion, and annotated bibliography in an essay. We also discussed the importance of the visual component of text when we read the graphic novel Maus.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    If he assigns books to read, read them. The books he chooses are interesting if you give them a chance. Also, the essays are pretty simple and easy to write once you know your topic so just do them and put your best effort into it. He is a fair grader; his requirements simple: support your claims.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course as it is a rather challenging English course that teaches students the foundations of good writing, and gives them practice in writing for various fields, which becomes useful in multiple other disciplines in the future. Writing is an essential for many courses, so this class is important in developing those skills.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights of the course included learning how to annotate properly and the differences between writing various types of papers, such as persuasive or research. I enjoyed exploring a controversial topic for my final paper, as it presents a chance to argue properly and efficiently, and also presents a chance to express your own opinion in an educated context.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    To succeed, you need to do all the work and almost always be present for class. Skills that you learn build up on each other, so it is important to understand everything. Do not procrastinate the papers. Meeting time is required with the teacher, and these papers are long written works that will require a good deal of effort in order to please him.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Along with this being a required course to graduate, this class will provide you with the basics to writing and analyzing. What is learned here can be applied to every class that has writing or reading in it.

    Course highlights:

    I learned how to create proper essay structure and how to analyze texts. Research was also a main topic in this class and learning how to properly research and utilize information was very helpful.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    You have to always keep up with the work. There is a good amount of writing and reading so falling behind can make it difficult to pass the class, let alone understand what is being taught.
