    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    Though to most he will at first seem rather odd and peculiar, Wiseman will go out of his way to be sure that you are able to grasp the material and he will teach in a way that is easy to understand.

    Course highlights:

    Jokes, at least 3 every beginning of class. Varied subjects to learn. An interesting group of individuals to work with. You will learn how to correctly write commas, semi-colons, conjugating verbs, subjective verbs and many more.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    If you are having trouble, step back, pause for a moment, breath, and then try again.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    The professor is very enthusiastic about the subject and makes reading the plays enjoyable. She encourages any questions about writing or essays! She'll meet with you twice during the term to talk to you about your skills.

    Course highlights:

    Reading some modern plays rather than strictly reading old Shakespearean plays. Even though you still read Shakespeare, the professor still goes over confusing things and the odd language.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Make sure to do your reading and writing that's assigned! With peer editing, make sure you're in class for it! It can be worth 10% of your essay grade.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    Nick's Writing 121 class will teach you a lot about writing essays. He focuses mostly on writing essays about college and doesn't give you tons of freedom on your topic. If you have trouble with coming up with essays topics, this class is for you. The readings you do help you structure your essays better and find out what kinds are more convincing and academic than others. You must work hard for an A, though.

    Course highlights:

    I learned so much about putting sources and evidence into my papers. Before this class I hardly knew what MLA was. Now I have a pretty good idea of how to cite sources, write clear and convincing essays, and how to help others improve their essays as well.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Always read the essays he assigns you to read. You'll be completely lost if you don't. Visit him for any questions or advice. He is willing to help and wants you to succeed.
