    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This course is very helpful in building writing skills. My professor is very good at explaining the concepts she teaches and gives good examples that relates these concepts to the real world and makes them more clear.

    Course highlights:

    This class improved my writing and argumentation skills immensely. My professor integrated the principles of rhetoric into everything we discussed, and that shifted my focus toward directly supporting my claim while writing my essays. It was the first time I had learned what constitutes a strong, well-supported argument.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Take time to build your argument before you even start writing your essays. Don't put it off until the last minute or else you will be more stressed and the quality of your writing will likely be worse.

I enjoyed her class very much and the guidance she gave me will be memoriable.
