    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Professor Thill really got the class engaged in a discussion rather than lectured at us. Thill broke down my misconceptions about writing which liberated me to be a better writer as a whole

    Course highlights:

    I learned that you didn't have to follow a cookie-cutter model for writing; no cheesy hook, no rambling, just straight analysis. This seemed more challenging but made writing more fun.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Always be willing to engage in the conversation. Also don't be afraid to come out of the box to write more creatively; challenge yourself.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    This class was tough. We started with about 30+ students. By the time the semester ended I want to say there was less than ten of us. Great guy, however I think the reason so many students dropped was because of the grading system. Perhaps it could have been the expectations were not clear. Basically students were graded based on 6 essays along with some small simple assignments from the text. In all my 13+ years of school this was the first time I EVER received an F on an essay. I typically score a B to A+ on essays. The feedback on graded essays were extremely vague as well. With that being said, the professor does admit to grading a little tough in the beginning and he is very flexible with curving your grade depending on how well you scored on your small assignments. I ended up getting a B in the class. I asked my peers after the last day of class what their grades were and majority were C and lower. Lastly, this professor is big on citations and plagiarism be warned. Automatic “0” on an essay if you accidentally cite incorrectly causing plagiarism. If this happens you are pretty much guaranteed not to pass the class with a decent grade.

    Course highlights:

    One thing I definitely gained from this course was how to properly cite. I also learned about some cool websites that will generate citations for you, provided by the professor. KnightCite.com being one of them.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Be mindful of citing. This professor will give you an F if you accidentally plagiarize.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    What I liked about this class was that we didn't just focus on writing. We did a lot of discussions about new and interesting topics. Nothing was off limits.

    Course highlights:

    I learned that it is a great big world. We should just focus on what is happening to us and learn about how other people live their lives.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Get involved. It doesn't help to just sit there and listen.
