    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would highly recommend this course to all students because it causes students to focus a more detailed level of literature challenging students to use more critical thinking when completing general assginments and when writing essays.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights of taking this course include becoming a better critical thinker and essay writer. I learned how to format my essays better and proofread more efficiently cause my essays to be more organized and have less mechanical errors.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    In order to succeed in this course, you will need to keep up with all the assignment deadlines. Some essays are 3-5 five pages so if you forget a deadline date until the last minute then you will not be able to submit that essay on time. Critical thinking and being creative is also very important in writing good essays so make sure when wring your essays think of many different points of views on a certain topic rather than making an idea black and white.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Professor Resente is extremely knowledgeable about the subject matter. Her material selection was relevant and intriguing. She offered a different insight to the literature, as well as the writing techniques. She requires writers to utilize different resources, such as writing tutors, peer revisions, and outside literary sources, which had a positive impact on my writing skills.

    Course highlights:

    I enjoy the process of writing organically, however, writing in a class setting has always caused me some anxiety. My writing style was never very organized in the beginning. Through this class, I developed techniques such as outlining in order to better organize my thoughts and allow for a better flow in my writing. My use of transitions was strengthened thanks to the writing tutors, and Professor Resente. My overall writing sounds more organized. I have received compliments and high marks in other classes that require writing due to techniques that I have been able to apply.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    My advice would be to start gathering ideas for papers in advance and make sure to use an outline. Read the readings at least twice, so that you better comprehend the material as much of the literature can be abstract. The professor is always willing to help and offers great insight, so be open in communication with her and don't be afraid to reach out to her for help.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Prof. Sanders is amazing, she is super helpful and genuine. I enjoyed her class. I am not a fan of English classes mainly because I am not good at punctuation and grammar but I liked this class. I thought Eng. Comp II was easier than the first comp class I took. If you do the work and submit it on time, I do not see why you wouldn't get a good grade. I passed with an A because I submitted the assignments on time and I did the readings. The professor also allows you to do edits and resubmit the homework for a higher grade. She is very interactive with us and cares about what we think and feel, she is very receptive to feedback. I suggest you take Professor Sanders if you aren't 100% on point with your writing skills.

    Course highlights:

    We read an ample amount of literature and wrote papers pertaining to them. I enjoyed the poetry part of class the most. We did not actually write any poetry of our own but we did break it down and analyze a lot of the readings. Some of the stories we read were Raisin in the Sun, Sylvia Plath, A Good Man is Hard to Find and Two Kinds. There was a critical paper due in the class also.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    I suggest that students taking the course actually do the readings, that is a major part of the class and your assignments. Do not, please please please do not wait til the last minute to do the critical paper and hand in the assignments on time. If you think your can get by without putting in the work, you will be highly disappointed with your grade. It is really all about time management and meeting deadlines.
