    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would definitely recommend this course since it introduces you to college level writing and thinking. This helps you see another side of English that you normally don't see in grade school.

    Course highlights:

    I think this class was really fun because I got to improve my English writing skills. When I entered college, I did not know how to write an essay. This class allowed me to practice writing essays and getting better at them. The class was interesting because the professor gave us a topic for the semester and made writing about it really fun. Now when I'm presented with writing tasks I feel more eager and confident to do them.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Take the prerequisite English 28 because that will give you the foundation to writing. Once you complete it, I highly recommend to take this class the following semester. This class helps with other classes because you need to be a good writer to be successful in college. When it comes to learning the material, write down important notes and also words that you don't know. I suggest to stick with a professor that knows what they're doing and does a good job at explaining the material. Reading a few books can also boost your learning, whether its for studying or as a hobby.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I thought it was an enjoyable class. I don't really like English, but this professor made it fun and interesting. I enjoyed writing the essays. The reading materials were also enjoyable and interesting.

    Course highlights:

    I learned the importance of creating outlines before writing an essay. It's also good to have your ideas written down before writing the essay. This process helped me during this class, and it will help me in future classes with writing essays.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Pay attention to the professor and be sure to read the materials. All the reading materials will be connected to the essays written in class. The teacher expects outlines of your essay before the final draft, so be sure to get in the habit of making essay outlines.
