A Few Big Assignments
Lots of Writing
Not too easy. Not too difficult.
I was not originally looking forward to ENG 101 because I thought it would be in a lecture hall with a professor who wouldn't be able to remember my name but I was completely wrong! My class had around 16 people and Ms. Bedard was a phenomenal professor who was extremely thoughtful, nice, funny, genuine, and helpful. She really cares about her students and makes class very engaging. The assignments we did in class were useful, and also very interesting. She likes to give good feedback on your writing which was very helpful to us as students. My writing definitely improved a lot!
We learned about how to write more effectively, and what kind of paper you are writing for certain audiences. You learn a lot about rhetoric and the things that make up rhetoric. We also discussed persuasive tools and strategies used in writing and in advertisements. We had four papers all semester, and the last three were built off of each other from a certain topic we chose. For occasional homework reading assignments we would read about current, interesting stories and would have class discussions about them.

Advice for students:
The hardest part about the course was researching sources and writing your papers. The homework was never hard, and neither were the in class assignments. To succeed in the course, definitely look at her suggestions and paper feedback and fix your issues in the following papers. If you ever have a question you just need to ask and she explains everything very well! She also is very helpful if you are having issues with something, so don't be afraid to ask for help.
