    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    English Composition 1 is a course that nearly all students are required to take. While many do attempt to test out of it, it can still be an enjoyable and informative course along with a gentle welcome to college life and the expectations that college professors have of their students.

    Course highlights:

    This was one of the first college courses I took so it was a bit tough at times. This course taught me a bit of discipline, as I learned that college would require both more effort than high school ever did and a different kind of effort. However, it was also very rewarding in that it gave me a greater understanding of American literature in a new, fun way. It also taught me that so long as a student cares and puts forth effort into the class, teachers will very often do the same for them, helping them as needed and working with the students on things that trouble them so long as the student is willing to ask for help. I learned, of course, standard English things, like how to cite things in MLA and how to read a college level text in preparation for using it as a resource for an essay, but the class helped me learn more about college in general than anything else.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Always do the reading. If you're renting your textbooks, check if you can highlight in them. Highlighters are your friends in any course but in English, they especially help break up large pages of small text. Take notes over a passage that was particularly long or difficult for you to get through. Also, ask your teacher if they may be able to read over your papers before they're due to give you a chance to correct any errors they may have or if they can recommend an on campus service for that. If your teacher won't or can't proofread your paper, they usually can recommend someone that can and it's a wonderful way to both form a relationship with your teacher and find out just what they're expecting of you. It also shows them that you're willing to work with them and put forth extra effort into the class. If you're in a large, auditorium style lecture hall for this class, it also helps show your teacher that you exist. When you're in a room with two hundred or more other students, your teacher won't notice you, more likely than not. If your teacher does notice you for good reasons, then they may be more lenient in the future towards you if you need to ask for help or an extension later on.
