    | Would highly recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Material presented as outlined in syllabus; prof graded essay's fairly and even helpful with her comments; helped us by being thorough with her exam prep advice.

    Course highlights:

    I learned a lot about college level writing, which will help me prepare for all I will have to submit to get into medical school

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    Go to class. Take notes on everything that is said. Visit prof at least 3 times and sit in front of the class. She was very fair but expected us to work!

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I would not recommend this course simply because of the professor. While he was a very nice guy and he challenged us both in and out of class, he was not very helpful and did not stick to the typical English 101 curriculum. I had friends in other English classes who really enjoyed it, but when I compared what I was doing in my class with what everyone else was doing in their class, my plate was a lot fuller that theirs. If I were a second-semester freshman, or even a sophomore, I may have enjoyed the course more, but trying to adjust to college and balance all of the challenging material Professor Noland was giving us that other English classes were not receiving was a very frustrating and stressful experience.

    Course highlights:

    Although the course was far more challenging than it was supposed to be, I did gain something from it. Because it is a writing intensive course, we basically only wrote papers, and Professor Noland was very particular about the way we wrote. Throughout the course of the semester, I gained a better understanding of how to write well, which was something I was already above average at, and I learned how to say exactly what I mean in as few words as possible. While I thought the idea of writing as little as possible was silly, now that I have taken more college courses, I have come to realize that this is what many professors ask of their students when submitting formal essays. Although I did not enjoy the class, I did benefit greatly from it.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    In order to succeed in this class, you have to read the required material. If you fail to read the essays that Professor Noland assign before going to class, you will be behind everyone else, and you will not be able to actively participate in class discussions, which is a big contributor to your grade. When writing essays, I would also advise that you start earlier than you think you need to. Being able to get it finished early and have several days to edit your essay can be the difference in an entire letter grade.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I recommend this course because my teacher actually made it fun to learn about english. We would talk about current events and also wrote about interesting things. With our papers, she gave us freedom to choose from a general topic about what we wrote about.

    Course highlights:

    The highlight of this course was learning to write a good paper. We wrote many papers, however, there were many different different ones we would write. This course was highly enjoyable.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Student would need to pay attention in class and just do their work. If you put the effort and time into this class you will get the grade that you want.
