Lots of Writing
Many Small Assignments
This class was tough.
Take her class! She is tough if you never took her class before, but you will be THANKFUL later. She will teach all you need to have a solid basis for how to write a great essay, critical thinking, and cause you to know more than you knew you could absorb. I am happily an English tutor now and I could not have done it without her class. She is thorough, honest, very attentive, cares for her students and she is compassionate while holding you accountable.
The PIE paragraph of essay writing. Ethos, pathos, logos. How to annotate well, criticize essays, how to do critical thinking as you read. Many other things that are important but these are the permanent takeaways.

Advice for students:
If I had to do it all over again, I would start my next assignment as soon as I got out of the class while my mind was fresh. Some important details, however minute, can cost you points if you forget. Otherwise, it's pretty self-explanatory in the syllabus. For me, writing essays over one to two day period was ok. but for some others in the class it took up to a few weeks to come up with college level essay with some assistance. I learned so much from this class and it has helped me immensely for all my other classes as well ever since. Take this class and later you will be thankful you did it.
