    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I have never been very fond of english; however, this class definitely showed me a new side to the way we take reading and writing. This class has taught me so much and if I could I would take it over and over again.

    Course highlights:

    Through my class I learned about many many different subjects mainly relating to Nevada. For example, I learned about the myth on the lovelock giants, the way wolves live as well as taking apart responses from various authors.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    The work you put into the course is equal to the grade you will receive at the end of the course.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    If you are looking for an instructor who takes the subject of academic writing seriously and expects no less from her students, you have found her. This instructor emphasizes critical reading and revision. The requirements of this class are simple and straightforward, but not inconsequential, and are appropriately challenging for a 101 level class. If you are willing to put in a reasonable effort then you will sail through this class, but if you are used to coasting through general education classes and don't take it seriously, you will fall flat here.

    Course highlights:

    This class has no final, instead each of the four major essays required throughout the class are assembled in a portfolio, with each having multiple drafts highlighting how it was changed and improved over time. This class is all about finding a writing process that works for you, and using revision and peer review to perfect it.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Do not wait until the weekend or the last minute to start working on your essays. Start working on them the evening after class and make sure you schedule time to review your own drafts. If you let yourself wait until the last minute, this class will feel VERY hectic. The instructor speaks quickly and a lot of class material is handled verbally including small mid-lecture writing assignments. If you're not paying attention, you will get lost. Start using the tutors at the writing center immediately, don't wait and do it on the last week just for the requirement. They're super friendly and helpful for draft revision. Not using the tutors from the beginning was my biggest regret at the end of the class.
