This class was tough.
While every freshman is required to take this course, I would recommend it one way or the other. It is a great opportunity to learn about rhetoric writing and inquire about topics YOU are interested in. You have a lot of flexibility on your work therefore you can write about what interests you.
I learned that going out of the box made the class significantly better. I enjoyed creating my projects more and thought the final products were better. I learned about what makes an essay strong or weak. The highlight for me was creating two videos which, while powerful, were very fun for me to make.

Advice for students:
Stay caught up in your work and take the rough drafts seriously! Even though the rough drafts (for my professor) were not graded on their content rather just completion, creating a strong rough draft allows for your final draft to be that much better. Peer editing becomes more helpful when you give them something real to edit rather than three pages of gibberish so you can get credit.
