    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.

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

    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.
