    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course for honors students because it is a great way to improve your writing and editing skills. It isn't an easy course, however, it much improves your writing which is a very important part of college.

    Course highlights:

    In this course, ​we covered many topics related to writing and rhetoric including the ethos pathos logos triangle, argumentative writing, persuasive writing, descriptive writing, and grammar.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    To succeed in this class you need to put in a substantial amount of effort which means attending class, taking notes, participating in class discussions, completing the assigned homework, and preparing the papers well in advance. Basically, the class consists of 4 main papers each worth 20-22 percent of the final grade. The other 16 percent is from the homework assignments. Focus most of your time on the papers because one bad paper can really hurt your grade (you are allowed one revision per semester). For the homework, ​most of it is just graded on completion to take the time to complete the assignment (and turn it in on time) and that should be sufficient.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course because you write a lot of different papers on different topics and it helps you develop your writing skills greatly. Professor Lyon is a great teacher and is always willing to help you in any step of the writing process.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights of the course were being able to pick all but two of the topics for my paper. I was able to write papers on topics that I was actually interested about like eating disorders relationship to the media. I learned how to write an effective argument paper and find good research for any topic I wanted to write about.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Definitely take advantage of the professors knowledge and willingness to help you with the assignments.
