    | Would highly recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would definitely recommend this course! This professor was amazing and didn't learned so much. I learned many different techniques on how to write and about myself as a writer! Dr. Russell is a very interactive professor and he is willing to work with you whenever you need it!

    Course highlights:

    Some of the highlights was that I was able to learn more about myself as a writer. I learned different techniques on how to write and I learned which ones worked the best for me personally. This I know will help me in the future with more advanced classes. When I think back this course helped me in so many ways and I'm very happy that I took it.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    I would tell other students to meet with Dr. Russell about your paper. A few of my classmates did and it improved their paper so much! I wish I was able to do that but the times didn't match up with my schedule. He was very helpful when meeting one on one. He was completely focused on helping you with your paper and what he wants in it.

    | Would highly recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I highly recommend this course because the instructor in phenomenal. She goes over each assignment thoroughly to ensure each student understands the requirements. Mrs. McGean uses interactive learning by allowing her students to discuss reading material with one another and ask questions. I enjoyed her teaching style because I learned more by hearing another person's perspective on the material.

    Course highlights:

    Mrs. McGean taught how to successfully find scholarly papers on topics by showing her class the Barber Library on COCC's homepage. The Barber Library has access to thousands of scholarly articles and is completely free for COCC students. I had not known about this research tool until I had writing 121 with Lisa McGean.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    If you have the option to choose the subject you want to write about choose a subject you have passion in, it will make the paper more enjoyable and written better.

    | Probably wouldn’t recommend.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I love writing! But this teacher was more than just challenging. to me, it seemed that the concepts would be easily understood in the classroom and we would all move ahead comfortably, but once the material was turned in to be graded, everyone would receive a grade reflecting that they didn't understand at all.

    Course highlights:

    I loved her personality! She was very funny and very easy to talk to.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    I woudl remind students to concentrate more on notes than on how fun the class can be. I think this may have been my downfall.
