    | Would recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this class because it is very important to learn how to write papers using proper English. This class changed the way I write papers today for other classes.

    Course highlights:

    I took a lot from this class, but I think I enjoyed seeing the improvements of my writing as a student. When we had a paper due I enjoyed getting the feedback, so I could work on improving my work in for future papers.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    In order to succeed with this class, be sure to really stay on top of your assignments. There were three major topics we had to right topics on and every time we received one I started working on it that day. If you begin to fall behind you will stress because you are rushing to get your paper done instead of taking your time.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    I loved Professor Boyle. He is really in dept and even though he sometimes treats us like children, I think we need that sometimes. I learned so much from him and he truly cares about us.

    Course highlights:

    I learned how to write a Rogerian essay but I also learned the importance of a rough draft which is so rare.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    You only need to write about 3-4 papers the whole semester and they are easy, it is also up to you what you write about.
