    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    Being an English 101 class, it is extremely simple in what it demands. That being said, if you're looking to further your writing capabilities, this class would not suffice. The main focus through the quarter was on two essays, where we weren't given any new writing strategies other than pre- written sentence structure formulas from our book, which were really too choppy to fit into any decent standard of writing, even though the class was supposed to develop our skills.

    Course highlights:

    As said before, I didn't learn much from this class. It was basically an in and out in two argumentative essays, and if I had modeled off of the provided resources I would've written a much worse paper. The teacher was delightful and very willing to provide help and feedback, but the standards this class was held to were near nonexistent.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    Take it for the credits rather than the learning experience. You'll want to have at least a decent foundation in writing before taking this class, just so you can pass the two essays without taking from the material they provide.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    It is a required course for all students to get a better understanding of basic college level writing. You write four essays and the professor is helpful and understanding of all writing flaws. It improves your writing skills and helps you get better prepared for future classes that don't cover how to write for a college class. I recommend doing the class in the beginning of your career.

    Course highlights:

    You learn how to write in four different ways including persuasive, rhetorical, research, and analysis papers. After you complete this course, you should be able to brainstorm effectively, annotate text, organize ideas properly, generate clear grammatically correct prose, and apply conventions of a particular documentation style.

    Hours per week:

    12+ hours

    Advice for students:

    Do your research and ask for help early on if you think you aren't understanding it enough. Always make sure to read the assigned task more than once so that you know exactly what to write about. Take all feedback positively, negative and positive. The class is meant to make you a better writer so all criticism should be influenced.
