A Few Big Assignments
Great Intro to the Subject
Not too easy. Not too difficult.
This course is lovely. I always love the readings that we go over, because I, myself, am an over-analytic person and love to read between the lines of a good story. Also, group work is almost essential (which I love), where we get into small group and analyze the process that the author went through to make this work, or just what went through said authors head.
The highlights of this course for me would have to be the freedom when writing essays. The essays were still structured for MLA format, however the topic was mostly chosen by us, the authors! For instance, we were told to analyze a visual text to pick out rhetorical details used to convey a message to the reader. So I chose a piece of advertisement from my favorite video game series and went into detail about it. Writing about what you know absolutely helps in the writing process, and really just makes the entire assignment feel like fun.

Advice for students:
My advice to you, would be to speak up. If you have a thought that pops into your head and you feel that bit of hesitation before raising your hand, learn to conquer that fear of judgment. English is so much fun when you get involved in the course and really help drive the discussion forward, even if its an abstract thought! Go for it!
