    | No strong feelings either way.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This course focused on how to construct you paper using various structures and rubrics to follow. It focused mainly on the grammar aspect and the construction of sentences with little reading and mostly writing. I am balanced on this course because I feel is restricted the creativity that you find in writing and instead had a standard style of writing that you were directed towards.

    Course highlights:

    In this course we looked at many types of papers to write including, arguments, annotated bibliographies and literacy narratives. We used the 3E of Norton Filed Guide to Writing to learn grammar skills in depth and how to incorporate them into papers. We also used They Say, I Say to understand what to say and how to use proper wording within your papers.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    If you are considering this course i suggest you take your time to review the rubrics of your paper and stick to them, also you should explore grammar rules and always review them and keep them consistent throughout your papers. Also you need to be creative in sense where you talking about topics that relate to your paper and can be used successfully rather than ones that are simply interesting.
