    | Would highly recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This class helped me with preparing for college level writing. It showed us how to peer edit papers and write our essays as well as we could. We also help class discussions. The discussions were lead by students so it helped us prepare for holding discussions in higher level classes.

    Course highlights:

    I learned how to write grade A papers. Before this class I never enjoyed writing, and was never any good at it. After taking this course I felt much more confident in my essay writing abilities and felt good about having to do harder level assignments in the future.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Ask questions!! Ask your professor for clarifications, if needed, and for opinions on topics, structure, etc. Also ask your peers to edit your work and ask them what they did if they came to a problem that you're having trouble fixing.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    This was a liberal education course that this professor took a bit too seriously. We learned about a number of different topics that didn't have much to do with our writing skills, things that had more to do with the topics this professor researched and studied. I felt as though he also expected this entry level course to have students writing at high college levels, when it was a course meant to get us to college level.

    Course highlights:

    I did write my first large research paper in this class. I learned how to find peer reviewed academic articles at our campus library, a skill that will definitely be useful.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Be prepared to read. Also, this course involved a bit of busy work regarding grammar and punctuation.

    | No strong feelings either way.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I wouldn't really recommed this course being there was a lot of busy work at times that I feel didn't help me.

    Course highlights:

    I learned about college writing and how to write a proper email. Also, I learned different rhetorical devices to use in my writing.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Be ready to write and read a lot if taking it with this graduate student teacher.
