Not too easy. Not too difficult.
I would definitely recommend the course firstly because it is completely online. No textbook is required to pay for so you save money. All the readings and assignments are done online. It saves trees as well. Although it is a a class going very early from 8 AM to 9:50 AM, it is only on Tuesdays and Thursdays. Professor Hogue said finals is required within the UWP department but it simply is going to be reflective writing on the course. Simple. It was just the time that made it hard for me personally to meet because I commuted back and forth from Sacramento. So consider working on your sleeping habits and plan ahead of the things you have to get done in order to avoid procrastination and loss of sleep where you would arrive late to class the next day. The course workload and grading is manageable and fair. Extra credit is provided!
I loved how Professor putted us in peer review groups for each Assignment Essay. It may be hard to face constructive criticism from your peers, but it helps you to become a better writer. Professor Hogue helped me to realize that as writers we get so caught up in our ideas in writing that we can't see the flaws in our writings. So take breaks in between to refresh your minds. Did I forget to mention that she has a 10-15 minute break after a passing hour of class? There will only be three Assignments each with a one to two week period to work on. She guides us students on how to write each of these Assignments on PowerPoint and encourages interactive discussion on the topics. Through this course I learned how to write a reflective narrative, a formal letter of complaint, and a research paper all pertaining to education through rhetorical language.

Advice for students:
Instill initiative and consistency with the course workload. Don't hesitate to email the professor if questions for clarification is needed. She will reply. Remember why you started and keep going! When you stop trying, that is when you quit.
