    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This is an easy course that teaches you different ways of writing that will actually be useful in the professional world. Dr. Carroll does not have you write for her, she has you write for an imaginary boss. Be sure to review her notes and comments after you turn in your papers. She tells if you got something incorrect and why it was incorrect, which really helps.

    Course highlights:

    In this course, we did not just write research papers for Dr. Carroll. We actually wrote papers, letters, etc. that would be handy after college. We learned to actually write for the professional world. I also learned a lot about correct grammar, punctuation, and voice from Dr. Carroll's notes and comments.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Read her comments and suggestions on your papers; these will help. Also, if you make anything lower than a 90 on a paper, correct what Dr. Carroll tells you to correct and turn it back in. By doing this, you are sure to learn a lot about the writing process and writing for the professional world. Also, you will certainly get an A in the course.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I have to warn you, there will be a lot of work. I had to do nine assignments in this course, which freaked me out at the start. However, once you get started it is not as bad. We covered a lot of different writing assignments: memoirs, reports, commentaries, resumes and more. Dr. Campbell is really warm, friendly, and always willing to help students on their papers.

    Course highlights:

    I really like the report we had to do, since we could do it over something we wanted to learn about, so it was a lot of fun researching that subject. We also had to a memoir with a commentary over a subject within the first paper-we wrote them separately of course. Those were my favorite papers to do.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    Be prepared to make rough draft after rough draft of your papers for editing. Leave no comma out of place. Also be sure to have all the things you need for the paper i.e source page, proper spacing, etc before you turn it in.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    It's similar to a Tech Writing class, but delved deeper than previous Tech Writing classes I've had. Dr. Carroll is and excellent teacher. Sometimes she can be a little too political for my taste(especially in a class that isn't about politics.) However, she 's super into argumentative rhetoric, so politics is bound to come out.

    Course highlights:

    Some of the assignments you have is creating various letters for different situations, a proposal, a website, resumes, short reports, reflection essays, and evaluation essays. Although, I haven't been able to apply certain assignments to my career, the email, resume, and proposal assignments have been beneficial.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    Buy the books for the class. She really good about letting students use the earlier editions of book, so it's cheaper. I personally took the online course, and recommend it as long as you can keep of the work and can work independently.
