    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend the course because of how easily laid out it is. Mrs. Cooper explain and taught the different styles of essays in a way that was easily understood. Even for the students that do not catch on quickly we all caught on and made good grades as the semester went on.

    Course highlights:

    As a student in this course I learned how easy writing an essay in APA and MLA format really was. For being an online class for me Mrs. Cooper gave great examples and responded quickly to any questions we had sent her through email. As we learned new writing techniques Cooper thoroughly broke down the assignments in a way it was like she was holding are hands, but did not leave us hanging with a thousand questions as some professors do.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    To be successful in this class, I would advise reading all of the tips and hints the professor gives. Reading the book as the class went on gave a lot of extra help. Asking questions and utilizing classmates if having questions on assignments would be the best.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    It is teching me how to write better, not just essays either! Everything, job applications, letters to colleges, scholarships essays. College Writing is a great course to take and get introduced to the basics.

    Course highlights:

    How to write an MLA style paper. How to write a APA style paper. How to always use correct citations because there are many different ways of plagiarism that you want to stay away from.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Always stay caught up on your assignments and never get behind. When he advises you to start researching for essays, I would do it because it can be a lot of information to take in all at one time if you don't.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    This class is a required genera education course. However, it was also very enjoyable. Learning how to be a better communicator and seeing all sides of an issue are skills needed in any professional environment.

    Course highlights:

    The freedom to express ourselves through written word and finding our "voice" as young developing writers.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Read as much as you possibly can. Know how to read properly as well. Many readings are lengthy and filled with unimportant information. You must be ready to discern what is essential and what is not. Have a highlighter ready, take good notes, and don't rush. Have as many people proofread your work as possible. Take constructive criticism and use it to improve your skills. Pay attention to details and you'll make it.
