Great Intro to the Subject
Lots of Writing
Not too easy. Not too difficult.
This was the first course I took in college that spoke directly to my major in Writing and Rhetoric. Hurley used interesting prompts to make us understand our major and what it involved.
Hurley had this one assignment that was supposed to teach us about creating arguments. First, we had to pick an argumentative topic and argue our side. Then, once we handed it in, he had us go back and rewrite the paper arguing the other side. This was so different to me, and honestly I loved it, as it taught me so much about rhetoric and how to use several means of persuasion to craft my arguments.

Advice for students:
Take this class seriously. Hurley is a great professor and he will teach you all he can, but he doesn't appreciate putting in more effort than he's getting. Don't miss too many lectures. It will create issues when trying to write the papers.
