Requires Lots of Research
Not too easy. Not too difficult.
The focus of this course was research and learning how to virtually split hairs in thought, perception, dialogue and, of course, writing. It was challenging to revisit a particular theme for the semester and yet produce new information, which became apparent the more one dug for information.
The highlights of the course was the textbook chosen to facilitate our study. It was phenomenal in that it was thorough, well-written, easily digestible and covered every area I could think of that may surface when writing a paper. The exercises in the book were excellent. I believe this is a core mark of a committed professor in provided thorough resources to the student and worthy of the NYU name and reputation.

Advice for students:
Be prepared to "think outside the box." You cannot settle into known thought patterns and expect to excel. Prof. Coppola is very direct and precise in what he requires. You'll be a much better student for taking his course.
