    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This course provided a great foundation for learning how to write scholarly material required for future courses as well as being able to cite my sources accurately.

    Course highlights:

    Writing analytical, research, and personal narrative essays was the main focus. I learned how to identify and use proper and credible sources for these papers as well as how to write an effective and structured essay. There were daily discussions over topics from each classmate as well as peer reviews.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Be prepared to be challenged with the task of writing lengthy papers (5-7 pages), and don't be afraid to ask questions about what the professor wants and how you can better your paper!

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    Professor Boyd takes extra steps to ensure students learn not just the material for his class but writing skills one can take with them throughout life. Skills such as how to use MLA format, how to skim readings to get the most out of a passage, and how to utilize the schools website to best benefit the student. He also made sure students would turn in the best work possible by allowing drafts of essays to be emailed to him so he could correct it before actually grading it. By doing this I personally was able to identify mistakes in my writing that I still carry today. Professor Boyd never made a student feel ignorant for not knowing how to do something and always made sure everyone left the room with more knowledge and confidence than they walked in with.

    Course highlights:

    Throughout this course I was able to learn how to correct common mistakes I was making though writing. As I hope to become a teacher I also learned styles of approaching topics and how to ensure students walk away with the most knowledge possible without them feeling drained of English.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Talk to him, really email him your questions and don't be afraid to go to his office. Send him drafts of your papers, he really does help you get through them so you understand the topic. Participate, show him you want to be there and he'll help you get through it all.
