    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    If you love to write and want to become a better writer, researcher, and analyst, please take this class with Professor Shaw. If you are not very fond of writing, you may not enjoy this class as much as you should, but you are bound to become better at writing regardless. There are many social topics that are discussed in class that have a relationship to writing skills, and conversations do tend to get heated. If there is a topic in class that really interests you or angers you, save it for the final paper.

    Course highlights:

    The topics that were discussed in class were really interesting. This class was first described to me as "writing about writing". The class consists mostly of metacognitive approaches to writing and the assignments and discussion posts make for great class discussions on real matters that take place in academic and career writing.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Researching in scholarly articles for any major papers in this class is a must! Make sure to do the rough drafts and get reviews from your classmates and professor. It may be hard to take criticism at first, but it will greatly improve the final result of the paper.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    First Year Writing is a required course at RIT, and Phillip Shaw is a good choice for an instructor as I found him to be a very enjoyable professor.

    Course highlights:

    The discussions of this course were often interesting and informative. The course also taught a lot about the metacognitive aspect of writing.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    As it is probably true for all classes, do not work on assignments at the last minute, try to finish them at least a day in advanced so that you can get everything complete.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This was one of the few writing classes that I have actually wanted to go to.

    Course highlights:

    I learned that the best way to write any research essay is to write around the facts instead of finding facts that fit into the essay.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Keep an open mind while taking this class, and don't be shy to share your opinion.
