A Few Big Assignments
Always Do the Reading
Lots of Writing
This class was tough.
I would recommend the course because it is highly informative and challenging. You really learn to appreciate the different types of writing styles and you learn to dissect and comprehend complicated material. You will also learn to write long papers from challenging topics - even topics you may disagree with, but that is the beauty of it! You get to be challenged in many ways!
The highlight of this course was the long argument research based paper which had to be a minimum of 2,400 words. That paper we could argue about anything, however, you had to find scholarly sources on it. During this paper we had a peer review. When I read my peers paper, I was excited to see how differently we wrote and we exchanged tips and tricks. I learned how to flower a paper effectively, to write with purpose, to properly cite sources, to avoid being redundant, and to write an effective introduction and conclusion.

Advice for students:
I suggest to pass this course, read all the assigned material and take some time to dissect what the author is saying and take notes on it. In my particular class we had to write a short paper on the readings we did and write a long paper on one of those readings. I also suggest that you start writing a paper as soon as the instructions are given to you. Do not procrastinate! If you start right away, you will have more time to work on the paper and feel more confident about your grade.
