    | Would recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course because it provides good composition skills as well as analytical skills through annotating and appreciating other essays

    Course highlights:

    The course highlights on brainstorming and coming up with an autobiographic essay, a profile essay, a concept explaining essay, a compare and contrast essay and an essay proposing a solution to an issue. These five essay topics I wrote on helped me improve my thesaurus, vocabulary and thinking capacity. All the essays especially the compare and contrast essay and the proposing a solution essay are practical and the knowledge of how to go about them makes similar occurrences in life quite easy to tackle.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    Students must be serious and attentive to the course in order to pass well. Much time must be allocated to coming up with good thesis and forecasting statements. The body of the essay is key and so a good and specific outline must be followed to make the essay appealing to the reader. The tone of the essay must be in accordance with the audience you are writing for.

    | Would highly recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Even though this course is probably a required course for most students, I would highly recommend it. Reading and writing provide the basics for the rest of college courses. You will be writing some kind of paper or essay through out your entire tenure at school and a basic course like this is the best foundation you can have.

    Course highlights:

    If may have been the professor's style, but we were able to go beyond the standard 5 paragraph essay format and delve into really understanding the readings assigned and experimenting with different writing styles. Class time was used for discussion, not lectures. In true liberal arts fashion, we were encouraged to expand our critical thinking skills and understanding.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    Make sure to do the readings and keep up on the weekly essays.
