    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Class is not dull, uses youtube to convey certain ideas. Example, uses youtube and advertisements to explain how rhetoric is used and how to incorporate it in your essays.

    Advice for students:

    Double check your work before you submit. Go to the writing center if you need extra help. The professor is also willing to help. If you email him he'll get back to you very quickly.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    I would definitely recommend this course. Writing is an essential part of life; we have to learn how to write academically to express our thoughts formally and informally.

    Course highlights:

    I learned how to write as a professional would. To use the language and discourse they would use. To become a writer, think abstractly. Use metacommentary!

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Always do the reading! Even if you don’t understand, just read it! Also, step out of your comfort zone. Ask questions! Always get a second look from someone before you turn your paper in! Accuracy does count. I took this course as a high school student. Tuition for me was free. All I had to do what show up. I was treated like a college student. But, that is not the point. Do your work. I got an A, and rightfully so, I did all my work. Show up to class! Be thoughtful!
