    | Probably wouldn’t recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would not recommend the online version of this course because it is hard to keep up with and there is more work than in a regular class.

    Course highlights:

    as a 121 class we learned about writing essays but I would recommend doing it in a lecture format.

    Hours per week:

    12+ hours

    Advice for students:

    Don't take it online, it is very difficult to keep up when you don't have a teacher or students to help you.

    | Would highly recommend.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    I would strongly recommend this instructor when ready to attend the writing 121 class. He is an amazing man and shows his passion for teaching through his nonverbals. He consistently spends hours after class talking to students and is very fair when it comes to grading. All you have to do is show up and give him 100% of your attention to get a good grade.

    Course highlights:

    The main thing I learned from this course was how to write well written sentences. I had a lot of trouble with fragment scentences, but Dr. Viles taught me a very easy way to avoid them.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Remember it's a writing class, so the material can be very dry. Just show up and complete all of the activities and you'll succeed.

    | Would recommend.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course to students who crave a challenge. WR121 challenges your ability to write clearly, concisely, and authentically. Rather than accept the world as it is, we can begin to challenge, reconsider, and even resist it. Reading and understanding different perspectives, and having difficult conversations creates an environment for growth. WR121 prepares its students to write honestly and live honestly too. It also teaches us to be more open to people and experiences that are not our own

    Course highlights:

    Our ability to write clearly depends on our ability to read/see clearly. Through reading, I observed a perspective unlike my own. In doing so, I was assisted in distancing myself from preconceived notions I’ve been involuntarily bombarded by. Taking this step back enlightened me to what was really happening in the world.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    Participate! This isn't the type of class you pass just for showing up (however showing up is also a fundamental part of the class.) You must participate in class discussions, critically read, and critically think!
