    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I recommend that any person, regardless of what major they are working towards, should take this class. The course focuses on literature based writing but covers a variety of topics and paper styles to spark individual interest. The professor is incredibly flexible to schedules and a fair grader. He helped me by explaining different writing styles and encouraged me to focus on different aspects of each topics instead of the traditional, obvious route.

    Course highlights:

    There were no downsides to this course. I enjoyed it beyond measure. The professor taught me to look past the traditional, overused topics to expand my knowledge of what I was writing about. I learned different writing formats and styles that have tremendously helped with the rest of my schooling.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    The advice I give is to research the topics you have been given to write about. Offer a personal spin on some your writing if the assignment offers that as an option. Do not be normal or standard. Reach above what you have been given to write about and explore deeper and darker topics.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I personally would recommend this course because Professor Brown makes English easy and fun. When I enrolled in my first English composition class, it was intimidating, but Mr. Brown made it manageable.

    Course highlights:

    Mr. Brown's class was the first English composition class I had taken, so almost everything in this course was new. For example, I learned how to write a literary analysis and how to successfully formula an APA research paper.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Even though this class was not really difficult, it was not a really easy course either. My number one advice for someone taking this class is to listen to the lectures and to not procrastinate when writing the assigned papers.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    This course is mandatory, however taking it with Professor Kessler is a challenge. Professor Kessler will push you to your limits and really engage with you throughout your writing process. He will make sure that you leave his class with the necessary wiriting skills needed for high education

    Course highlights:

    I really mastered APA and MLA format because of this class. I can tell you the differences between these different types of papers, including citations, formatting, and source crediibility.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Be prepared to work, and whatever you do, do not give up on Kessler, he will help you through all of your struggles.
