A Few Big Assignments
Not too easy. Not too difficult.
This course taught me how to write more effectively in a scholarly setting. It was very helpful and the professor is very insightful. I came into the course unsure of my writing ability, but left it with a strong grasp of what my skill level is, and how to work towards improving.
This course was initially a little intimidating, because the professor wanted us to present our assignments, however as the semester went on, I learned that sharing and getting feedback was one of the most effective ways of learning. I enjoyed the presentations and could physically see my improvements with each presentation.

Advice for students:
If you put in a little bit of extra time, and write every version of your papers as if it is the final published work, than you will succeed. Proof reading and editing is essential, and no matter how much you re-read a paper, you will probably find another error. Lastly, have a friend or peer read your paper as well. A fresh set of eyes will help you be un-biased, and give you constructive feed back.
