    | Would highly recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Because it's more about applying what you learned in high school rather than going over high school.

    Course highlights:

    Well, I am very biased, because I love writing. I learned more about the way that I write and how I love the way that I write.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    I would say that you would need to take the time to actually make your work decent... it's worth it!

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course because it taught me how to be a better writer. I am less afraid of essays and feel much more prepared for other college courses. It can be tough at times, but if you stay on track and do your work, this class is a piece of cake.

    Course highlights:

    The highlight of this course for me was the structure of the course itself. We read and learned about a certain type of essay, then we wrote the rough draft, reviewed other peers essays, started learning about the next essay, and turned in the final. This made it easy to know what would come next. I learned how to write different kinds of essays, how to cite those essays, and how to review peers essays. I also learned that for the most part, you never use "I" in a formal essay. Ever. I also enjoyed some of the research I had to do for my essays. I learned some very interesting things.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    The advice I would give is do the homework during class if you can. This way you don't have to worry about when it'll get it done later. I would also advise not to procrastinate, especially on the essays. Not turning in a full rough draft can effect your grade in ways you don't want. I would also say that it is important to know the basics of an essay, and that it's really helpful if you are good at spelling and grammar. If you are not, I would reccomend having students who are check that for you. It's a good idea to have peers review your essay even if your grammar is good, though. The more people that can read your paper, the better.
