    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This course is great, not only because Chatman-Riley is an amazing professor but because this course facilitates in developing skills to express ones critical thinking and ability to use language. It was hard for me at the beginning because I felt I did not fit in. I felt inferior to other students because I didn't have the skill to express myself, but that is what makes a good student. Being able to learn about the skills and engage in developing them.

    Course highlights:

    I can write better, read and comprehend more, communicate thoroughly, critically think and develop an outline. The hardest thing sometimes is elaborating through writing on a deep thought one may have. What is great about this course is everyone has that potential, and with this course you study many genres of writing and practice writing them.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    To succeed you need to have a thirst for knowledge. You must want improvement and learn the course is not entertaining if you don't put what you learn to practice. People will consider this course boring but nonetheless it is because they have not experimented through writing and reading comprehension the skills one can develop.

    Course Overview:

    I recommend it because it's better than taking the stretch courses & my professor was very understanding. The course itself is fairly easy.

    Course highlights:

    I learned more about writing because of the book that's required of us to read. It's very helpful & I would say that that was a highlight to the course.

    Hours per week:

    12+ hours

    Advice for students:

    It would be better than taking the stretch courses, because it's straight to the point. Focus on writing & reading the readings, it's important that you do.
