    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I highly recommend this course, specifically with this teacher, because the subject of the course is about reading analytically and writing synthetically. This is a life skill and a career skill that can be nearly universally applied. There is no better person at teaching this than Professor Hoffman.

    Course highlights:

    There are three major papers to write in this class: value essay, fact essay, and policy essay. These essays are very research-based and structural. These assignments teach you how to effectively research and include research in your work - a priceless quality in my opinion.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    If you take this course, do not procrastinate. My advice is to allocate days for certain aspects of the papers. For example, set aside a certain day or couple of days to research your topic thoroughly, then set aside a day to read your research and annotate it, then set aside a day to create your outline, then set aside a week or so to fill in the content.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    This class is difficult but it really shows what you can do as a writer. She does not coddle her students or give a lot of guidance but after reading your essays she will give good feedback and help you with errors.

    Course highlights:

    This class was very challenging for me but very rewarding. I have always loved my English classes so I was eager to take this class. However, on the first day, the professor made it clear it would be a difficult course. She pushed me to do write my best and because of her my writing improved.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    You should start research for your essays as soon as you pick your topic! Do not procrastinate on doing research otherwise, your essay will not have as many details or show thorough understanding. You should also spend a good amount of time reading and writing your outline, this will make writing the essay a lot easier. Also, take advantage of office hours so she can catch MLA mistakes early- those will lose you quite a bit of points.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    RWS was an option from a list of required courses and I had to choose one of them. I am happy with my choice and those who like writing or are good argumentative writers should take it.

    Course highlights:

    This was a good course as it was broken down into two blocks. We did two essays in the first block, and in the second block one group power point project and another essay. There was no "final" essay technically, just the fourth essay. I believe my argumentative writing skills improved and I bettered the technique of integrating outside material into my work.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    On days when professor Kinkade has an optional class go! It's very beneficial to your essays. My first essay I didn't go to the optional day and I got a C on my essay. For the second essay I did attend class on the optional day and I got a B+. You don't have to stay the whole time, you can just get help then leave so go!
