    | Would recommend.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    This course challenges your grammar, proper format of writing, and how well you understand your own writing pros and cons. The instructor leaves no mistake unnoticed, which, can be intimidating. However, without staying on point- we as students would never know our slightest mistakes that could evolve into greater mistakes.

    Course highlights:

    I am still currently in this course. A great highlight is going inward, and writing a personal essay about a person, place, object, or event that has special meaning. I feel this has helped with the comfort in the classroom because of the abundance of information that is being proposed in the course. I am learning my writing style and the minor mistakes I tend to make and how to keep them limited. I am learning that college writing is expected to have higher standards, which keeps me focused and open to any suggestions the instructor has to better myself as a college student.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    Make sure you set aside uninturrepted time to do the readings. Notes are a necessity. Pay close attention to the feedback of your instructor and your peers responses. Make sure you read your peers discussions, these are more helpful in gaining insight on your own writing styles compared to others.

    | Would highly recommend.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course because it helps the learner understand different essays, and how to write the essay. It teaches the writer about tone and language, and how to understand what tone and language to use when writing a certain essay. It is a class that needs to be taken in college courses.

    Course highlights:

    I learned how to write a personal essay, and how to set the tone for my assignments. I also learned about colorful words and colorless words, and how to use emotional words when depicting a persuasive essay.

    Hours per week:

    12+ hours

    Advice for students:

    I would tell the student to make sure that they have all there work turned in on time because this is not a class you want to get behind in.

    Course highlights:

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Have an open mind and buckle down on the final paper.
