    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Professor Burton is one of the best professor I ever had! He really works with his students on how to improve their writing rather than just giving a student a grade with no response attached.

    Course highlights:

    Each week a two page essay is due, which to some students may seem like a lot of work, but it really isn't. At the end of each week, Professor Burton goes over some papers in class and gives feedback on ways to improve in each essay. By following this method students are able to learn so much more and retain the information.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Make sure to do every weekly essay assignment because as long as you do it and try, you will receive a 100. By writing an essay each week and receiving feedback you will notice your writing improving as the weeks go on.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    While taking this class you learn the basics of writing an essay. Your ability to write grows exponentially.

    Course highlights:

    The highlight of this course was when we began to go over Shakespeare. From this I learned how to understand the way old writers, such as Shakespeare, talked and wrote.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    The easiest way to succeed in this class is to not procrastinate. Actually write the rough drafts up to a week before the final draft, have someone you trust go over the rough draft and proof-read it. This is the easiest way to ensure that your essays are the best they can be.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Mr. Garner was an excellent teacher, and learning how to write all sorts of different essays was very helpful. Being given the opportunity to complete this class in high school was definitely a plus.

    Course highlights:

    We wrote three essays a semester, which may sound like a lot, but it wasn't so bad. Each essay was a different stye; Literacy narrative, argumentative, research, literary criticism, and others. Mr. Garner was with us every step of the way and gave us each time to ask him questions about our papers.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Writing so many essays is hard work, so stay focused, and always have someone read over your work. Whether it is your professor or a trusted friend, having someone read it over is helpful.
