    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    The course was very interactive and eye opening to how diverse people can be, through themselves, the way they see things, and how they think and write. The professor was always kind and excited to teach. Even students who did not want to take the class at first ended up really surprised by the end.

    Course highlights:

    The course is the first step for most incoming freshmen. While many have different classes and teachers, the course material is the same. While many are focused on other courses, the class teaches the importance of being able to write well. I learned a lot from the professor and the students as well. Students were often told to work in groups and share our work with each other. It led the way to a lot of interesting perspectives and writing techniques. A paper you thought was perfect could be fixed even more than it already was. Seeing a variety of different writing styles also helped me implement techniques I liked from their writing into my own and the class helped each other make better grades on our papers this way. Overall I think I learned how to improve my writing and also learned how to work with others through the course.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Don't be shy to share your work, even if it is something you are unsure about. The teacher will help you and allowing your peers review your work allows it to be seen from different perspectives and can improve dramatically. Another thing that is crucial is, the more you dread the work, the worse the outcome is going to be. Always give it your all, make it personal to you. Owning a boring project and turning it into something you can feel proud of creating is both and incredible feeling and a grade booster.
