    | Would recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend it because it reminds me of my A.P English class I had in high school. I believe this 101 class was just stepping it up one notch more than the A.P Class. During this English college class, I've learned a lot of identifying rhetorical devices and how to use them accurately. I also realized the many mistakes I made in my paper. The class offered various times of revision which I deeply appreciated. It demonstrates repeatedly what needs to be revised/fixed. One of the best parts is that you would be able to take your papers to the writing center the university offered, also having one on one or group conferences to go further in depth to critique our papers. The class includes numerous chances of improvement, so by the time it comes for Portfolio Review at the end of the semester in which all of our hard work is critiqued to see if we pass or not, it's definitely worth it.

    Course highlights:

    I gained a lot from this course. I gained organization skills, how to better define my paper and its structure. I gained better making thesis statements. I learned to make better claims and make it more clear. I learned how to provide more support within my writing. Most importantly, I gained more confidence by the end of the semester.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Definitely put the effort fourth. This course is not easy, I'm saying this to be realistic. It all depends on you. If you don't like the way your paper sounds, take it to the writing center and have a tutor give you feedback on it. You can also go to your professor during office hours. You even have offering peers within your classroom to help as well. Do not be embarrassed, no one said college would be easy. Asking for help is the reality of college!

    | Would highly recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course because it was a really fun and educating class that taught the basics and a little bit more when it comes to writing a college paper. I'm not a fan of writing but My teacher really helped me and my class by being available and helpful when it came to drafting and finishing our papers.

    Course highlights:

    What I learned from this course was how to close read, which is thoughtful and critical analysis of any text and your basically just focuses on the big details or patterns in order to get a deeper understanding of the text.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Make sure you talk to your teacher and go to the writing center. I attended the writing center at least 2-3 times a week and I made sure I emailed my teacher with any questions and set up meetings with her.
