    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This course isn't only about improving your writing skills, but it allows you to begin developing your own writing style. There were three major essays that we wrote, and in each essay you can see yourself improving and evolving as a writer. We also had writing groups which consisted of peers who gave suggestions on rough drafts, which was very helpful because I had several different perspectives on my essays. There were also smaller pieces of work that allowed me to improve my writing and reading assignments that were not only helpful, but interesting as well.

    Course highlights:

    There were several pieces of writing and reading that were very fun to engage in. Also, we had class discussions that were relative to myself and my peers, which kept us interested and helped us learn from our peers. I learned what rhetoric is all about and all the terms that it encompasses. This allowed me to use pathos, ethos and logos in my essay to strengthen it and persuade my audience.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Start your essays as soon as possible and work on them a little each day. When starting, you may find it helpful to just write whatever is on your mind about the topic. After this, you can go back and see which parts are important in your essays and which parts you can leave out. This technique is a great way to brainstorm as well. When editing it, take some time off from the essay before you come back to it so you can have a fresh view on it.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This course was very eye opening and elaborate and eye opening. I was pleasantly surprised by the course work novelty and would like to highlight the free in which we were given to make prompts our own.

    Course highlights:

    From this course my overall writing skills were challenged extremely. I was at first apprehensive on someone grading my work under the "English-eye" but I soon warmed up to this idea. In this class I learned how to give and most importantly receive constructive criticism, which was something I was struggled with.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    Revise. Revise. Revise!! Always meet with the writing center and take peer reviews seriously. If you find yourself having an extremely hard time comprehending the prompt or want to push barriers (like me) E-MAIL the instructor. Also build a relationship with your professor, them understanding the way in which you think will give them insight to your written thoughts.
