    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course because you really learn how to write. While the professor may be a tough grader, the students improvement is at her greatest interest. She meets with every student individually after every essay assignment to give specific feedback, followed by an opportunity to revise the essay. If you only care about a straight A this is not the course for you, but if you want to write essays and learn to apply critical thinking into your writing, I highly recommend this course.

    Course highlights:

    As the class was linked with a learning community, we had field trips from which I really learned a lot. I also consider the personal meetings with the professor a highlight, as I learned a lot from her. I learned about my strengths and weaknesses as a writer and how I can improve.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Work hard. Take a lot of notes, especially when you discuss the reading assignments during class. If you want to get good grades on your essays, include arguments and counter arguments to what the reading says! You dont have to agree with what the author of the reading says.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course to everyone, specifically because of Professor Worden. She puts a lot of time and effort into her class and her assignments have meaning. She follows what the English Department requires her to teach, but she puts her own spin on them, making them more enjoyable and, like I said, meaningful. Professor Worden is also extremely helpful when you aren't sure of a paper or assignment and she is willing to work with you until you do understand. She is kind and funny, and I connected to her because we both enjoy theatre. I look forward to being in English 201 next semester with her.

    Course highlights:

    My favorite assignment in this class was either the Discourse Community Narrative or the Blog we each had to run. The Community Narrative piece was very enjoyable for me because I discovered who I am as a person more and now better understand the communities of which I am a part of. That paper in particular was quite easy for me to write and I received an A on it without much trouble, after turning it in for a second draft. Professor Worden allows every major paper assigned to be turned in for a second draft, and everyone who takes this class should really use that to their benefit. Go to the Writing Center, it's free for students, and have them help you revise your paper. The Blogs were also very fun. They could be on anything, my was on fashion. The only "rule" was that we had to address different topics we were discussing in class. So things like gender, class, race, etc. It was interesting and engaging, creating digital works from scratch and employing media, making it all work together.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Utilize the Writing Center. It is free for students, and Professor Worden requires two visits per semester anyway. They can help you at any stage in the writing process and are very friendly and helpful. Another tip is to actually do the readings and participate. Professor Worden makes the class as fun and thought-provocing as possible so take part in that. You will get more from the class and do better in it.
