    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This course helps you prepare for your major writing course. However, if you are a strong writer you do not have to take this course.

    Course highlights:

    I learned that there are many different ways of getting a message across. By saying that I mean we have many different genres of writing. Before entering this course, the only thing I knew about genres were related to movies and TV show.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Listen to the advice your instructor gives you. You may not want to hear it, but sometimes another person's perspective is needed.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    Instructor Reynolds is an amazing teacher. She keeps the class entertaining and interesting. When talking about my favorite class, hers comes up. The way the content is used is pretty great and the different projects we do in class help bring the learned content in. There is a great deal of wiggle room, pretty much free range. All she asks is to have us go by a few guidelines for each project. I'd highly recommend taking the class, especially with her as the instructor. Her being a graduate student as well as an instructor, she's very relate-able and understanding.

    Course highlights:

    Possibly one would be that I was able to write about something quite personal to me as the first major assignment. It was quite enjoyable to explore that part of myself. We also got to recently learn of kairos. While it is challenging concept wise, she does make sure to explain in a way we will understand. The terms and concepts that have been introduced so far are certainly helpful, especially when practicing them in our class and projects.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    I would suggest that you definitely read the text book. The rhetorical text book is unlike any text book I have seen. You will certainly have parts you'll enjoy as it involves a refreshing format to present the information. Another good tip would be to ask questions. It doesn't matter if the questions are during office hours, during class, or right after class. Professors are happy to clarify points you may be questionable about. However, do not ask the night before or the morning of. A good portion of the time, they will not even look at their email if the assignment is due the next day and there are a large string of questions you have. Try to get all the questions you have down and ask them a couple days before the assignment is due to give some wiggle room.
