    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    This course thoroughly taught first-year college students the essential basics of English composition and literature. The course focused on thesis, research, and peer review, which are all concepts that can be applied to every area of study. Additionally, the professor for this course was always willing to aid the student in any area of the class that presented challenges to them. Upon taking this course, I felt supported and encouraged to go the extra mile and seek help when needed.

    Course highlights:

    The largest assignment that I value the most from this course was the literature review. The purpose of the literature review was to compare and contrast ideas presented in various sources, in order to identify common and varying themes around a central topic. This course not only taught me how to compare and contrast sources, but also how to use online data bases to perform extensive research. Additionally, the assignment taught me about grammar, academic writing, and how to create an annotated bibliography. I consider this assignment the highlight of this course because I find myself writing literature review frequently in my advanced classes. Learning how to write these academic papers early in my degree plan made the process easier and faster.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    In order to succeed in this course, use your academic resources around campus. I spent many hours in the university's Writing Center, where graduate English students were always there to help with grammar, thesis statements, and peer review. The Writing Center was an integral part in maintaining my high academic stature. Also, always talk to your professor about extra credit opportunities. Since ENGL 1301 is a basic course for all degree plans, there is bound to be abundant extra credit opportunities available to help you succeed.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course with Davis because he goes over the minor elements and then ties it together for the whole product. English 1302 gives good insight on possible essays that may have to be written for any major.

    Course highlights:

    I learned how to apply rhetoric to my writing, which has many elements to it. Specifically, I analyzed the problems with brain death and how it is related to doctor's education. Rhetoric takes a topic and analyzes it deeply into many parts. I learned how to compose a formal paper and presentations.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Keep up with the work, and do not wait until the last minute to write the full paper. Most professors write these paper in pieces.
