    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    This course is challenging but in an exciting way. As a student you become more aware of your strengths and weaknesses. You learn about yourself as a writer and develop a writing style. Throughout the course there were reflection assignments for each assignment, which is very useful when analyzing your progress. You learn which skills you have picked up and which skills you still need to work on. You build on your initial way of answering questions and form stronger critical thinking strategies. This course has definitely strengthened my writing and shaped my identity as a writer.

    Course highlights:

    Some highlights of this course were the extra support and resources. We had lessons in the library where we learned how to conduct research using the CUNY library website. We learned to narrow our search using Boolean terms such as "and" and "or". We learned to navigate through the different databases and use databases such as EBSCOhost to funnel our research. One skill I picked up during this class was note taking skills. In high school you usually wait for the teacher to tell you which notes to write down and highlight, but in this course I learned to write notes as my professor spoke and not to write everything down the way I see it on the board. Instead to write notes so that I can understand and use them.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Don't be afraid to ask questions! The professors are there to help, it is okay if you do not understand everything the first time, but the information taught will aid you in your assignments. If the teacher is talking jot down the question in your notes and ask them when you get the chance. Make sure to add new vocabulary to your notes and highlight terms as they may be brought up again in a future quiz or during a class discussion.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    This class is helpful to students of any major because you learn important writing skills. Writing is important for writing resumes, which my Professor also showed us how to write.

    Course highlights:

    This was an excellent course because it focused on writing. Our Professor allowed us to write about any topic we wanted, which made the writing more interesting. I was able to write about topics like Edward Snowden, and the album American Idiot. We did not just write for the sake of writing; we wrote for a purpose. I wrote about Edward Snowden for an essay about arguing a position, in this case it was whether or not Snowden was a hero. For the American Idiot essay, we had to analyze a work of art and interpret it. Our Professor was extremely kind and made sure students understood how to write. I thought it would be a boring class, but it turned out to be my favorite. He kept us engaged in class and made lessons interesting by incorporating current events.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    Be prepared to write a lot. If you write about topics that genuinely interest you, you should be fine.
