    | Would recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recomend this course because Professor Weaver is very willing to work with you. Her class in mainly composed of writing essays so if you have a solid foundation for that she will help you build on it and develop you better.

    Course highlights:

    I learned a lot about the MLA style format. She thoroughly covers it and shows you the in's and out's of MLA style format.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Use your tutors. They are there on campus and can help you before turning in a paper. Take it to them and have them proofread it before turning it in.

    | Would recommend.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    While it was definitely a challenging course, it was engaging. We had free will to choose our topics on our essays so long as they meet certain requirements. Professor made us think critically and step out of our comfort zone. We had to work with other students in the class and actually think for ourselves. The professor didn't tell us how to think. We were on our own in that area. However, Professor was always around to help us out when we needed it. He's very clear in the assignments he gives and his critiques. He lets you know exactly why you received a certain grade and what you can do better. This course definitely transforms your writing if you are willing to be challenged.

    Course highlights:

    I learned how to really write college level essays in this class. It was demanding and a lot of work but once I buckled down and took everything my professor showed me into consideration, I was able to improve. Every week we were given small assignments and videos that showed us what good writing was and how we can achieve it. We learned about ethos, pathos, and logos and how it applies in writing. We learned how to read other people's work below surface-level. I learned how to dig deep within myself and push harder to get a better piece.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    Don't procrastinate. If you put this class off every week, you will fall behind and not put out your best work. Give yourself plenty of time to review the material and finish assignments. Take the class seriously from the beginning. If possible, look ahead and find out about upcoming assignments earlier. Take the time to critique other student's work and be as honest as possible without being mean. Definitely ask questions if you don't understand something. The course is challenging but can also be a lot of fun so don't stress over it and just enjoy it.

    | Would highly recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend it because you take so much knowledge and information from the class you'll be set.

    Course highlights:

    Highlights of the course for me, was the grammar assignments. Grammar is my strong suit.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    The advice I would give to students that consider COMP when you're a high school senior is to read the instructions, multiple times.
