    | No strong feelings either way.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    Instead of the course, I will recommend the instructor. Professor Jordan is very skilled at leading students into the subjects of conversation that she eventually wants you to write about. Her method primarily seems to be to get students talking about a subject first, and then writing about what they've said and heard after class discussion.

    Course highlights:

    Most of my gains were not in the writing aspect of English. That's something that I've had plenty of practice with. But Professor Jordan is very big on peer editing and discussion, which helps me to 1) talk to people that I may not necessarily reach out to, and 2) find ways to be constructive and helpful without being overbearing or completely dominating the conversation. I've begun learning how to help people help themselves, rather than just telling them what they should fix.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    Stay on top of the writing assignments. They're the meat and potatoes of the class, and if you don't have anything to work with, you've wasted your and your classmates time, as well as your tuition dollars

    | Would recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    It is helpful to make a strong thesis and support it. It also teaches relentlessly the desire for a good works cited page that some professors are stingy about.

    Course highlights:

    I gained an understanding of how to back an argument up with the correct way, no matter website, book, or other on how to cite the sources used.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    If you cannot find a way to back your argument up, don't bother about writing from that perspective. Find another and move on

    | No strong feelings either way.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I can't say if I would recommend the course or not because I did not like the professor. She did not treat us with respect as she had a sense of arrogance when we didn't understand a topic.

    Course highlights:

    I did enjoy learning different ways of writing and how to focus in on details. Even though I am not an english major, it was still a useful course.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    When you are given an assignment, don't procrastinate on it. Start it immediately and make progress on it each day.
