    | Would highly recommend.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    He is the kind of professor that will teach you the tools you need to succeed in future English or writing classes. He is stern and relatable and is always willing to help students out when they struggle in their writing process.

    Course highlights:

    Aside from learning how to write better papers and critical thinking, Jones brought relevant and important issues to discuss in class and welcomed the class to debate as a way to practice critical thinking skills and learn to support arguments.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    If you are the kind of person that doesn't take their class work seriously and expect the professor to give you special treatment this is definitely not the class nor professor for you. He will make you work and it will be difficult and if you are not eager to meet the professor half way in order to help you succeed in the class then you will have no one to blame but yourself for not doing the work.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course because the professor makes sure that you understand what is being taught.

    Course highlights:

    One of the highlights from this specific class was the discussions. They helped me on becoming more open minded and outspoken since I am more of a reserved and quiet student. The professor does make everyone talk, but that is a good thing because she makes sure that you understand the topics.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Prepare in advance on what you want your papers to be on. Do not procrastinate and ask for help if you need it.
