    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I've always been a fan of English but before I took this class I felt like I wouldn't learn anything. In this class I learned so much more than I thought I would and can apply it to many different aspects of my life, not just writing.

    Course highlights:

    I learned how to speak to different audiences, how to write with a lot of different styles such as blogging or research papers. This class gave me guidelines but allowed me to still think creatively. I learned about rhetorical modes and how people use them and how to spot them as well.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    Come prepared and confident and ready to learn. Be open to new ideas and don't limit yourself. Push yourself outside of your boundaries and don't just try to get by in the class, really try your hardest to improve your writing skills. It will help you in so many other classes as well.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This class is very helpful and introduces you to college writing in a reasonable manner. It is a good class to take if you have had a hard time with English in the past because of the way that it goes over some of the basic things as well as introducing new topics.

    Course highlights:

    I cherished the classroom discussions that we would have. Many of the college classes here at USU are pretty big this class is smaller which is a really good break from the huge classes. I learned more about many basic things as well as broader things like; how to use rhetorical modes, how to construct a annotated bibliography, MLA formatting, and how to write in many ways. We also did a project that was researching a area of study that you are interested in and then writing paper about it. I found that this have heled me figure out what I want to do a lot quicker than if I hadn't done the assignment.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    You really just need to care and want to learn something. It is a good intro to college course to take. Make sure you use all of the time that the instructor gives you to work on essays don't wait til the last minute to start your 5 page paper.
