    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course because it is informative on different types of writing you may encounter such as research papers, professional reviews, annotated bibliography, etc. These types of writing are extremely crucial and while they can be intimidating, the course is taught by having each assignment slowly worked up to. The assignments are called short writing assignments, (SWAs for short) These small assignments are due almost weekly but contain a similar element to what is required in the major writing assignment.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights of this course was the lab time we could to spend. During these time we were able to do peer reviews and ask any question we had about the paper that was going to be due. Peer reviews taught me a lot as far as how people write differently. Most of the papers were different based on the fact we had to choose topics on nearly every paper. Each were unique and informative to me. I enjoyed receiving critique on what I could fix, it helped me grow as a writer.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Advice I would give to students considering this course is to read the prompt thoroughly before beginning each assignment. Nearly any question that you have will be in those prompts. The prompts help you format what material you need to include in your paper along with what is expected of you.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I believe this class is benefits to all students because English 120 helps a writer become formal. It helps students learn how to fine sources effectively and correctly.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights of this course were that I learned how to become a formal writer. I also learned how to organize my writing in topics and sub topics.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    My professor was a difficult one. She had high expectations and very high standards. These expectations and standards drove me crazy until I understood what she was trying to do. She made me a better writer because she made me work hard. If you work hard in this class it will pay off you just can't give up or lose hope.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I absolutely loved Josh's English 120 course. English is one of my favorite subjects, and we got to do a lot of free writing in that class and learned how to write in different styles of writing that would benefit us in the future and help us develop as writers as a whole. Josh is great with helping you with your work when you need it, and challenging you to step out of your comfort zone and write in styles and formats that are new to you.

    Course highlights:

    The highlight of the course is getting your work back and looking at Josh's encouraging comments and his constructive criticism to know what to add into your work for next time. Josh's teaching style was different, he would appeal to different peoples learning types and always made us laugh.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Do not wait until the last minute to turn in your assignments and essays, and as long as you try your hardest and put forth your best work, Josh has no problem helping you succeed in this course.
