    | Would recommend.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    The main I would recommend this course is mostly because of the material that was taught will always be applied in your future classes. We learned certain techniques like research and writing process that was quite helpful.

    Course highlights:

    In this course I was fortunate enough to have such a passionate teacher who made sure the student were able to understand, rationalize, and think critically. I learned how to write a proper argumentative, problem solution, and literary analysis papers.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    For those who are considering this course, I highly recommend you always do the readings because they go more in depth to the corresponding material. I also recommend you don't leave any of the assignments off for last minute.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    The reason I highly recommend this course is because it teaches you different skills that you will use in the future such as research.

    Course highlights:

    Throughout this course I learned the concept of writing process. I learned how to write a well written paper and I learned how to identify the mistakes throughout the process. I also learned as stated above how to research properly.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    For those considering this course, I recommend you gain a little bit of prior knowledge on proper writing format and be prepared to work.

    | Would not recommend.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    Since this course is a requirement for most students, I just would not recommend taking English 120 with this professor. Mr. Lyle is currently a graduate student at the University of New Mexico, yet he is also teaching two sections of this course. He was very late grading assignments and never gave feedback or comments on any writing. Between the final and rough drafts of papers, it was hard to know what to fix or do different when you are not receiving feedback. The majority of my time in this class was spent doing peer reviews, reading from the textbook, or listening to the professor explain the assignment likely due by next class. He was very bad at explaining assignments or even answering questions, which I had a lot of, so it was difficult to get a good grasp on what to do. When he mentioned that he would have an assignment graded by, it was never done by that day. I did not learn much in this class, nor would I even go so far as to say I would retake it with the same professor. The only positive thing I have to say about Mr. Lyle and this course is that he is quick at responding to emails. This course also requires a lot of busy work: completing peer reviews, writing multiple drafts of a paper, and more.

    Course highlights:

    The only thing I learned from this course was how to use the rhetorical situation to your advantage when completing an assignment. Rhetorical situation is defined as the context (Powerpoint, paper, poster, etc.), purpose (to inform, to persuade, etc.), topic (animal welfare, student wellness, etc.), angle (academic, humor, formal, etc.), and audience (board of educators, parents of children with epilepsy, criminal justice majors, etc.) of an assignment. This information allowed me to successfully write several major papers for this class, as well as a 16 page final portfolio.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Take this course with a different professor, you will spend less time figuring out what to do and more time actually completing an assignment.
