    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend it because it teaches the well prepared and committed student who is willing to learn how to write like a pro, and gives out very helpful course material that is applicable not only for the course but also for any writing done in other classes or outside of school.

    Course highlights:

    I learned/am learning about the skills and tools good writers possess and how to acquire them. I'm learning about revisions and narratives and research papers, which I will have to do in the future without as much help as I am receiving now.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    To succeed you just need to write and keep writing! Don't be afraid of bad first drafts; adapt and change them and improve on them as well.

    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.
