    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would reccomned this course to anyone who truly wants to know how to write a good essay that is formatted correctly.

    I learned how to write an essay that is more than five paragraphs that had a strong thesis and had research to back it up.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    Be prepared to have an essay due every class session and for not knowing your grade until the end of the semester.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    It was a true to boot college course! I had a bit of trouble managing it all but overall I managed to do well after putting in all my efforts. I feel like this is one of the courses you should put as a priority in the beginning of your college experience because since then I've had to utilize the writing skills I've learned here in other courses.

    Course highlights:

    The most essential thing I learned in this course was how to write a proper college level essay.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    The most important thing to learn is to not procrastinate! That's probably applicable for all courses, but especially for this. There's nothing worse than having to dole out a 6 page essay in the middle of the night. Do whatever you can to force yourself to keep on track and it'll pay off.

    | No strong feelings either way.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    The class involves a lot of peer editing, but really, just doing the work will get you the grade, and discussing English and MLA formats about the papers you're editing will help you learn. He teaches a few punctuation rules, but actual writing lessons is very minimal from him. He has arbitrary guidelines (and must-haves) for his papers, but they are easy to follow and he is only trying to get you used to using and understanding how to use them in a paper. He can get confused easily by questions, so be clear as you can and just keep trying until he gets it. He provides social topics today that are considered controversial, so open-mindedness is required, or you will be miserable writing the paper and peer-editing others. Not much creativity, his papers are pretty standard. Relaxed and kind of funny guy. Do the work and you can pretty much pass I feel.

    Course highlights:

    Learning others' mistakes on peer-editing will help when you thoroughly check through them. I personally enjoyed the essay topics he presented to us. The excessive guidelines he has will be in any real paper outside of his class unnecessary, but I understand how to use them now very clearly (most of the time at least, English is a absurdly complex language with many exceptions).

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Do the work, write the drafts, and pay attention to whatever films he plays for you. Take advice from peer-editing, but always check it over to make sure what they wrote is right. Be open-minded to the topics. He had a 10-15 page research paper for our final, and he made sections of it due a certain day, which spaced out our work. Be grateful, and follow that schedule. You won't have to write it all in one night if you procrastinate, and it really makes you appreciate spacing out your work, which hopefully will carry into your study habits.
