    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course to any incoming freshman because they will learn the basic foundations for writing in any and all majors. I have met several other professors for this course, and every one was kind and truly takes an interest in every student’s success.

    Course highlights:

    My critical reading skills improved after we did several textbook readings followed by blog posts and in-class discussions, which helped me in anthropology. We had to read several ethnographies and cultural articles and it was easier for me to understand because I learned how to annotate well in UWRT1103. The inquiry citation workshop and research review helped me to learn the conventions used in my major, and now when I take a writing-intensive anthropology course next semester I will be prepared to turn in papers in the proper format. The blog my class did before starting our language and literacy projects helped me identify my audience and figure out their needs, it also helped me identify how most people talk about the topic I was researching. I found that in my topic, it was okay to break convention and do something more creative to share my argument. That blog and the research review also helped me develop my composing process in multiple genres.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Be prepared to read and self-motivated. There will be no hand-holding like in some high schools, but the class is very interesting and putting in the hard work will seem easy and even enjoyable after the first few classes!

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This isn't your average high school English class. You aren't being taught how to write a traditional boring five paragraph essay that just regurgitates all of the research that you've done on a particular topic. You are taught how to write a thorough paper on a topic that you are curious about without having to structure it in a way to where the reader wouldn't enjoy it. This class was more of a creative writing course where the students were given the freedom to express their ideas in a given assignment in various ways. It made the students more eager to do the work. The class was extremely interactive. It wasn't just an hour and a half of lecturing but we watched videos, did group work, used technology, had class discussions, etc.

    Course highlights:

    I think the highlight of this course for me was being able to still be creative and include my voice in my writing. Some professors like things to be dry but Meghan Rand was definitely not one of those professors and I think that's one of the reasons why I appreciated her so much.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    I think the most important thing is to make sure that you participate in this class. The more you put in, the more you get out! Ask questions, express your ideas, and give feedback. These will all be ways for students to be successful in this class.
