    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    Professor Coury explains the concepts introduced in the class explicitly, and tries to ensure that everyone understands what is happening. She is extremely easy to approach with questions and will gladly assist you if you need it. Overall, the class was amazing. You get to meet new people in your "study buddies" groups, which means you meet more people who could possibly help you out too. It was an enjoyable class that really helped me develop my writing skills and taught me proper citation methods. If you are new to MLA formatting for essays, or new to presenting evidence and citing it, this class will help you out big time.

    Course highlights:

    I improved as a writer, became more aware of errors I was making and learned to correct them. We went over proper grammar (although that seems elementary, it was quite difficult to grasp at first), learned and adapted to MLA 8, and learned how to cite and include evidence in our writing.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Make sure you are being consistent with your work, if you leave assignments (mainly essays) for the last second it will pile up and become intimidating.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    It is a prerequisite class that must be taken. The professor is one of the best teachers/professors I have ever had. He is hilarious and can get distracted with random subjects at times, but he is very good a relaying the information he wants you to know. He is a tough grader and doesn't hand out A's easily(although thanks to him I always received A's on my paper); however, he is very clear when telling you what he wants from your papers and is willing to stay after class to provide assistance or provide possible revisions to your paper.

    Course highlights:

    I learned a lot from this course, thanks to the teacher specifically. I learned how to write a summary paper, how to write a response paper to a story or article, and I learned how to properly write a research paper with the proper MLA citations.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Go to the class, you miss a lot of critical information whenever you miss class. Read the material before class. Have the professor look at your papers during office hours or after class before the due date, he will help you and the grade on your paper will significantly increase.
