    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    It is an awesome class for learning the base of writing essays, you learn all the basic skills for writing essays and get into rogerian argument. The book was actually interesting and I thoroughly enjoys reading the example essays and articles in the book.

    Course highlights:

    We really focused on rogerian argument and one of our textbooks had all different kinds of essays written in rogerian form. You learn how to do Put together a complete essay, title page and all, which is something they don't teach you in highschool. I was dual enrolled while I took this class so it was really more of a review of what I was learning in my highschool classes so I think it was a little easier for me than some of the old people in the class.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    My advice for student considering this course would be to just relax and don't worry about the length of the essays, just start writing and the length will all come. Too many students freak out when they hear how many pages an essay needs to be. Also, I would say to just make sure you keep up with deadlines so you're not doing you outlines, rough draft, and final draft all in the same night.
