    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This course teaches proper techniques to use when writing essays, resumes, memos, emails, and letters. You are also taught public speaking skills that can be used when you give a presentation on your own or in a group. These are skills that are not only required in any work lace but highly valued if you learn them early on rather than during.

    Course highlights:

    Every assignment given serves a purpose, they are each made to help you learn how to properly structure your writing, it's content, who it must address and how. We are given lots of time to improve our assignments so we cold master the different structures of writing here are.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Definitely go the office hours, my teacher was very nice and helped me with whatever I needed, she did not critique she just gave advice on how I could improve the weak sides of my writing. Also the Writing Center was a huge help since hey helped clear up anything that I needed help with when my teacher couldn't. They will also listen to your speeches and give you tips on what it needs an what you should improve.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    It's a very stress-free course. You get to be in some group work. You don't really have classwork. The homework is mainly manageable readings. You get to tell stories thru your writings and speeches.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights of the course were the speeches.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Take the course seriously. While yes you can take your time when it comes to doing the readings; you don't have rush into the homework readings. However, it is still a class that deserves your attention and effort, or else you will do poorly.
