    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    The only reason it does not have five stars is the time this class consumed. It was a ton of writing, but worth it in the end.

    Course highlights:

    The professor was really pretty helpful. It was not what I was expecting for a college class. I loved how she broke down every project into many steps, so it was not so overwhelming. The whole course was focused on rhetorical situation. Therefore, you cannot complete the class without learning about and gaining a greater understanding of this subject.

    Hours per week:

    12+ hours

    Advice for students:

    The best advice I have is pace yourself. Do not fall into the trap of procrastination. The work load is far too heavy to wait until the last minute to complete the assignments. I did it a couple times and my grade showed it.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    As a high school student this course really allowed me to get a look into what I have coming for me next year. The course is challenging but not impossible and I really enjoyed the multiple writing assignments. I had never been asked to write the kind of papers I was asked to write in this class. I even learned a whole new writing format since I have only ever known MLA.

    Course highlights:

    I've learned how to unblock "writers block", strategies to extract only important details from texts, write papers I had never been asked to write before and create tone. There are four major formal writing assignments and the time I was given allowed me to really revise my pieces and to get it right. I have learned so much personally about my writing skills and abilities. I also learned how to better manage my time with the rest of my high school classes which I believe is a great skill to have going into college.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Manage your time well. Make this class a priority and force yourself to read through the chapters. Always ask questions either to your teacher or peers. It will all pay off in the long run.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course because the professor, Dr. Michael Emerson, really wants you to succeed. He cares about all the students and even if you miss a day or if you can't turn in a paper he understands and will help you through it. He also will have one on one conferences when you are working on a paper to help you work through tough parts that you maybe having.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights, are that in the book that you have for this class it gives you what you need to know in order to write a paper effectively. Plus with the different types of papers that you have to write in the class, it will help you to understand what type of paper you will need to work on later in your college career.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Always write your papers and turn them in on time, do the reading logs, and read the material thoroughly. Also ask for help when you need it.
