    | Would not recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would definitely recommend the course, as it is mandatory. I love writing now that I have learned the proper way to do so. The professor, however, was not my first pick. I basically had to be self taught, however, my mother is an editor in chief for a magazine. She really helped me through this course and I ended up finishing with a 4.0

    Course highlights:

    I learned how to write in MLA and APA style. I learned that research papers are so much fun! I actually had a hard time with putting too much information in them because I was so invested. My APA paper was over postpartum depression, as I have personal experience with that disorder. My MLA paper was about ISIS and the United State's foreign policy. My causal analysis paper was about serial killers and if psychiatric conditions or outside influences such as family matters and bullying could cause people to become sociopaths. I loved every one of my essays and received an A on each one.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Research from databases is essential. taking notes and going back to the 7th grade "web outline" helped me tremendously. Do not worry about the thesis statement or introduction at first. First, type the paper without plagiarism and as you are finishing up the paper, then you will find that the thesis and introduction is easier to form. find three main ideas that support your argument. However, do not get frustrated if you change topics or main ideas. it could take hours a day just to get the proper research for one paragraph. ALWAYS cite your sources in proper format for whichever style you are writing in. Make sure to be creative with paraphrases as well.
