    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    If you are a student who struggles with paying attention to monotoned professors, well this is the class that you want to take. Eng 1301 was one of my favorite courses because of Dr. Rizzo different approach on writing techniques in the English language. He sings for the class songs he's written as examples and it engages you to understand what he's saying as opposed to dozing off 10 minutes into class.

    Course highlights:

    I learned the importance of personalization in writing essays. What separates a good and bad essay is not so much the grammaticization, but the connection the reader establishes with what the writer is narrating.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    If you do your work on time and review your essays with him and always show up to class, you will get an A, guaranteed.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This dual credit course was a great help to get started in college. The instructor is good at teaching, very well organized and NEVER late. This was my very first dual credit course and I can certainly say that it is more difficult that high school classes and that students are required to put more time and dedication into their work. The biggest difference that I found between high school and college classes is that teachers have higher expectations from you and that they expect you to know when assignments are due even if it wasn't discussed thoroughly in class. Overall I highly recommend you to take this course because it helps you prepare for college and gives you a headstart.

    Course highlights:

    this course helped me learn how to become a college level writer. From this course I learned how to stay on top of things as well as manage my time more efficiently. The essays went as high as 8 pages and most of them took a lot of time to do. I really liked having peer reviews for every essay because we were able to get a second opinion and learn how to fix our mistakes.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    The advice I would give to students taking this course is not to procrastinate and to do all the revisions that the teacher provides. I would also advise students to keep their essays and assignments for the whole semester just in case she might want them back. The instructor gives the students a schedule at the beginning of the semester and students are held accountable for the assignments due each day even if the profesor doesn't give a reminder.
