    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    Professor Jordan is an excellent professor and gave clear guidelines on what he wanted for his papers. Not a lot of reading was required, and if you do the work he tells you to do, it is an easy A. He makes the class fun and instigates good conversations.

    Course highlights:

    The best part of this course was the homework. There was little to none besides papers, which were very easy to write if you put some time into them. I learned how to be a better writer and how to use the three appeals.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Just do the work. If you fall behind its obviously going to be tougher. If you do the reading and listen in class, then you'll do fine. He doesn't take too many points off for grammar mistakes or anything.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Carl Roach is an exceptional young professor. His passion for writing is easily transferred to even the most reluctant student, and his mentorship can take a child writing run-ons in crayon and give them the tools to write a structured, organized paper. His dissections of the required readings are both insightful and open to interpretation and debate, which you will have many of in his class. Rather than stamp dissent down, he is willing to play devil's advocate for the sake of further discussion. Overall, Prof. Roach takes a gen. ed. english coarse and makes it the requirement of education that it wishes to be.

    Course highlights:

    -Writing structure and tutorials. -Peer and Professor reviews. -One on one meetings for further work. -Multi-viewed, discussion oriented analysis of texts. -Practical, example driven focus on grammar and writing styles.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    If you're an English nerd, you'll have an easy and fun time. If you're less enthused by reading and writing, come with an open mind. Prof. Roach is open to your ideas and variations on his topics, so make the course fit your interests.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    This English teacher is super calm when it comes to English papers he lets you resubmit them if you have a lot of errors on them .

    Course highlights:

    The teacher was very friendly and wanted the student to pass the class by giving specifying the material and letting the student resubmit the material to get a few extra points.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    The only advice I would give others doesn't be afraid to ask questions if you do not know why you have to add a comma or period in a certain area of your paper.
