    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    While this class presented a challenge to me, I had a chance to interact with other students taking the course too. We had a chance to work together and really build each other up, which help our success in the class to continue. I would highly recommend this class, so long as a person is able to keep a strict schedule.

    Course highlights:

    In this class, i had a chance to gain insight from other students. This really helped me with my own writing as i gained other ideas and input from fellow students. Most importantly, I learned that there is no such thing as a perfect essay. we always have a chance to learn and grow with each new draft that we pour our heart and soul into.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    For any one planning on taking this course. GO TO THE WRITING CENTER. i did not and it definitely affected my grade and writing. Had i gone, made time in my busy schedule, i could have easily gotten an A in the class and learned some new techniques to help with my writing. If you're from another state or town, there are resources online to help you that are just like the writing center.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This was a great course to introduce any student to a college level English course!

    Course highlights:

    Some of the best aspects of this course were the personal, big essays that we would have to complete for our mid-terms and finals. I learned a lot about structuring a proper essay, as well as some citation specifics!

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    The best thing to do for this course, considering it is English, is to always do the readings and small essay assignments! Participation counts and you cannot be active in a discussion if you do not know what you are talkign about!

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would definitely recommend this course because it is an introcutory to writing essays which will be essential in college. I would also recommend this specific course because the teacher makes it interesting. She gives you different sorts of assignments that test out a plethra of essay styles.

    Course highlights:

    The highlight was when the teacher asked me to write a compare and contrast essay about anything that I wanted. It could have been fiction or real. Because I was able to pick my topic I was very interested in it and invested a lot of time into it. It even made finding information and citing sources fun because I got to learn about a topic that I liked!

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    The biggest piece of advice I would give students is to not wait until the last minute to do the assignment. Start on it at the beginning of the week and everyday do a little bit. Also, do your best to be interested in what you are writing about, your work will always come out better if you are somewhat interested in the topic.
