Not too easy. Not too difficult.
Professor Mary D' Alleva cares about her students successfully writing the college level. This course is challenging but she helps break down weaknesses such as thesis statements for students to improve on future papers. She gives good feedback and goes over material we need to really focus on.
The highlights were that she gave us writing prompts for papers that specifically need to be addressed in the thesis statements. The paragraph structure lesson helped a lot because I learned that there needs to be more transitional phrases used in college. Peer-reviewing and class discussions helped as well because once you look at your first graded paper, you may already want to improve your writing right away!

Advice for students:
My advice would be to focus on your papers and take it seriously. Have about more than one person review your paper. Make sure you thesis statement can address the question and have the following points of point of view, reasoning, and why people should care. This class will definately be a success for you if you take this advice from me. Do include transitional phrases throughout your body paragraphs, also make sure your paragraphs have topic sentence, body paragraphs with exams or supporting details with evidence and concoluding sentence. Be sure to cite everything yiu found evidence for your papers.
