    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would definitely recommend this course to any freshman who has just entered college. Specifically for the Fall semester because I feel like this class has prepared me for what else to expect in my college educational career. English is a very important course that everyone entering college must take, however I believe that the earlier a student takes this course, the slightly easier it will be for a student to grasp the difficulty of college level classes. English 111 is a course that specializes in Rhetorical Composition, a subject that seems to be very difficult to attain the knowledge of, however it has helped me as a student become a better writer. My professor especially shared her passion for writing and was always willing to help us during her office hours, and anytime via email to help in revising and editing our papers. Taking this course will especially help students who do not enjoy writing, by letting them know that it is okay to revise and have various drafts because with each draft written, a student's paper will surely improve. Being a writer myself, I feel like I have taken all the advice given to me from this class, and applied to to my own blog writing skills, to better improve my focus on audience and purpose of writing.

    Course highlights:

    In this course, I learned a lot from writing and even reading. Some of the highlights of this course were the ideas of helping me read like a writer. Many of the readings that we were assigned, helped in the writing and reading in various ways, by showing us that the way in which we read shouldn't be specifically to pay attention to the purpose of the story, but to pay attention to how the author wrote the story. By doing this, not only are we learning about the reading but the way in which the writer writes his or her story, is a strategy to help the audience understand what it happening. This is also helping us learn various skills in writing papers on our own. I learned that it is the way in which we approach a subject, that our papers will become stronger and will have a better purpose. Along with learning how to write, a big assignment we had during the end of the semester was to write a documentative argument. This paper taught us how to write but include research in it as well, to back up the argument that we have chosen. The way that I have been taught during my previous years of schooling doesn't really compare to what we were taught in English 111. We learned specifically where to look for our information, how to know if the information was reliable, and lastly how to cite it, as well as let it flow with our paper. These are key strategies that are important to use when writing a paper. These skills that I have learned, will really grow along with me during the rest of my college experience, because I feel like I can use them with future English courses, as well as any other course that requires me to write papers on. Overall, there will be many subjects taught when taking this course.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    For students taking this course, I do not recommend many tips other than showing up to the class and doing all the required work that is due via canvas. What I also would like to advise, is the avid attention that a student needs to pay attention to in this course. The only way to learn the strategies needed to become a better writer and learn on your own is to do the required assignments, and read the assigned readings. Not only do these contain the needed information, but most of the work attached to this course, really connects to the papers you will be writing, and most likely will help your grade for the better, once the professor can tell you are improving on your writing.
