    | Would recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I personally would recommend WRITING 121 because it exposes students to literature and writing techniques not many people have the chance to experience, or don't want to. Everyday I could walk out of the class with new ideas to wrestle with and character-building questions to myself.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights of this course were the class debates. Usually after reading and before writing, as a class, we would have debates of hard-to-deal-with topics such as the possibility of truly loving two people at once, or if society needs a reset button. Further more, I have learned how to write and critically think effectively, which can be a accredited to the professor, but also to the curriculum. Comparing to other students I have come across, I've found that my writing has been greater than most in many ways.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    If I am to give advice to students getting ready to take the class, I would say that the most important idea to have is that of an open mind. Students will face hard questions and ideas, and one must take them head on. One must know that there will be strenuous work, and students should be ready to be self-driven and find out ways on their own to get the work done.

    | Would highly recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course to people who have a hard work ethic, or a get by work ethic. Each paper is graded on how well you research the topic of your choice, so you will be able to write about things that interest you. You can easily get a C or B in the class just doing to required work, but an A requires that extra push in your work ethic.

    Course highlights:

    Writing papers on contrast and comparison was great. You learn to find the most subtle differences, and how to blow up as a key point in your paper.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Do not procrastinate when writing your papers. Even if your paper is sue in two weeks, it doesn't hurt to do it now, and put effort in it, then to do it later and turn in a half finished paper.

    | No strong feelings either way.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    The professor knows her course, however could teach it in a better form.

    Course highlights:

    She had a possitive aspect to many things.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Don't be shy to express yourself.
