    | Would recommend.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    I recommend this class because of the professor. He is willing to look over your essays a million times till it is perfection. Also, many of the classes he just tells stories the entire time.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights of the class is how he brings various stories to the class and utilizes them to get us to think outside of the box. He is a very interesting guy.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    Do the homework and answer the questions he has for the class and he will like you more that other students. This will get you a little higher grades in my opinion.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This course is one in which I find to be extremely helpful. Before taking Professor Bliss's english, I was an average writer at best. Worse, however, I had a hard time writing essays. Not because of my lack of knowledge, but because of my lack of skills to gather my thoughts and stay focused on my paper. This course is definitely a lot of writing of work, with a total of 40 pages in writing throughout the semester. However, the work is worth it and really not that bad. Each deadline is pretty spread out, making the workload not seem as bad. My writing skills improved tremendously and I find that not only am I better writer, but I actually write much faster. As long as you put in the work in this class, you will definitely receive a desirable grade. I would absolutely recommend this course to anyone who wants to take it, as long as they are willing to put the work in.

    Course highlights:

    To me what really stood out in this course was that you learned how to write a variety of essays. Each essay focused on a different writing skill, and you were also given informal writing assignments on any topic of your choosing. By doing so, I was able to improve my all around writing skills.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Just put in the work and make sure you do your best work. In this course, your effort absolutely reflects the grade you receive.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would definitely recommend this course because it teaches an extremely important tool: writing. I went into this class with an average writing ability and feel that I came out as a very good writer. The course has you write all different types of essays, so it really makes you well-rounded.

    Course highlights:

    I learned to write much better than I initially could. The course improved my abilities all around.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Definitely take it. It will really help you to become a better writer, and as long as you put the work in it isn't too hard to get an A.
