Lots of Writing
Requires Lots of Research
This class was tough.
This course is insanely challenging and time consuming; however, I would recommend it to any student that asked. Dr. Mann is an amazing teacher. He clearly explains and elaborates on every topic that we learn about. The majority of the class is comprised of non-English majors, and Dr. Mann knows this. Therefore he adjusts his courses to fit that which it is truly titled: College Writing. The information we learn in this class with go on to help me throughout every class I take.
The research project composes the majority of this class. You have to go out and do field studies (at least six times, independently, for 2 hours each), do further research using multiple types of sources, and then write up a 15 page research proposal. However, it is not as challenging and daunting as it seems. Dr. Mann breaks up each portion of the paper into separate due dates and helps every step of the way. I actually ended up enjoying the amount of independence I had during this project as I know it will be helpful for me in the future.

Advice for students:
Show up to class. Do your readings. Get your research done on time and when you are supposed to have your field notes completed. Always participate-I got out of some assignments that I missed because I was such an active participant in class.
