    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This course overall is just like any other English class, but Professor Shannon goes out of her way to make sure you pass her class. It is almost impossible to fail. In this course you'll have three main essays/papers; Personal Narrative, Research Paper, and a Reflection Paper. All these will be pretty easy, Professor Shannon gives you plenty of time and depending on the class you are in you have to meet with the English Tutors to review every paper you write. The main struggle in this class isn't to work or the work load, it is time management. You have to stay on top of your game and it is definitely beneficial for you to have your papers read by the tutors, they do more good than harm.

    Course highlights:

    I learned how to better myself as a writer, in the beginning of this course I didn't know how to put my thoughts into a five page paper, it was difficult for me. But with the help from the book the Professor presented us with and the lectures she gave, I would most definitely say I have squashed that problem. In the beginning of the course Professor Shannon kind of takes you back to the basics of writing in order to show what you can and cannot do and then helps you from there. For the papers we had to write, when it came time to turn them in she personally sat down and went through you paper with you, telling you what was good, what could use better wording or placement and how to catch a readers attention on a topic you yourself are not interested in. She is an amazing teacher and I would recommend her class to anyone.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    In order to succeed, you need to have stellar time management skills, you cannot be a procrastinator, or at least not for very long. The projects go one right after the other, and if you don't finish one assignment on time, the one coming after it will still have the same due date. Keep on your toes. It would also be a good idea to check BlackBoard often, the assignment may change or she may upload another one.
