    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this class, as well as the professor, because it is a very critical thinking-rich class. It's more than english and just writing a few papers and I like that. The class involved a lot of thinking beyond the surface. I feel like I really got to fully expressed myself and improve in my writing with the help of peer evaluations and conferences with the professor at the end of each unit.

    Course highlights:

    My favorite part of the course is the class discussions. I am a very quiet person and at the beginning of the class I would shy away and never raise my hand to be involved in classroom discussions, but now I am the opposite. I've learned a lot about myself, thanks to the "being me" narrative essay in unit 1 and I enjoyed analyzing my peers papers in this unit in particular, because i got the chance to really open up myself and learn more about my classmates. Very interesting and analytical class.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Come to class, it's really not hard. Also, get involved in the classroom discussions. Participation matters and you probably know more than you think. You'll definitely transform the way you think and write by the end of the class.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    Cates is the best professor hands down. It is not everyday that you get a professor who genuinely cares about your well-being.

    Course highlights:

    Talking about the course book and relating it to our everyday lives.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    TALK TO CATES! He is very understanding

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I LOVED this class! My professor wasn't listed because she isn't directly associated with the department but I had Marcie Walsh and she is fantastic. She in extremely understanding and caring toward her students. Everything she teaches you is tied together and does actually relate to your real, out of class life. There were three major writing assignments and there was a lot of group work which was great because this class is two semesters long and you have the same professor and classmates which is great because you form a really tight, solid foundation of people you know and can for the most part rely on. Participation definitely does matter but it is so easy to participate because of what we're discussing. Discussions were about inequality, the election, things that actually mattered to us.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights were definitely the readings. I know most high school teachers pick absolutely awful books but these texts were so incredibly relevant and made sense. We read a lot of books about racial inequality and the broken justice system. We did a lot of introspection in this class which I really enjoyed because I've never had the opportunity to do that before.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Trust. The. Process. That was a phrase I had to learn in this class. This means trust the writing process. Write a AWFUL first draft, let as many eyes as you can read over it, and then edit. Trust that process and you basically can't fail. It was hard to do this for me because in High School I would really just write something and submit it without another thought and would usually pass. But that completely changed in college and I appreciate that 100%. I have much more confidence in myself as a writer and I think the rest of my class can agree.
