    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    If you want to learn to write better and better articulate your arguments, this is the class to go to. Professor may be nice, but he is very direct when criticizing how you write, which I personally appreciated. He makes clear what he expects from his assignments and what you need to improve on when writing your papers. The readings he assigned were good, too, and this is coming from someone that doesn't enjoy reading all that much.

    Course highlights:

    I learned to better state my arguments, as well as organize my thoughts. Prior to coming to this class, I tend to digress a lot in my writings, which led to my assignments looking like a complete mess (B or C worthy material). Now I feel more confident in how to present myself on paper. I also enjoyed the class discussion. The professor is very open minded and when a brainstorming or discussion session takes place, all kinds of ideas pop up on the board, even ones I never considered. I also learned that every English teacher has a different preference and taste when reading assignments. Although the professor makes it very clear, it still caught me off guard how much the professor wanted my essays to be all dynamic and whatnot.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    The professor has a very low tolerance for un-energetic and uncaring students. Do listen and speak up in class, and do put effort in the assignments he gives you. Do not be afraid to ask any professor questions. In fact, in this case, it's much better to do so. The sooner you ask about, say, how to make your paper more interesting or what topic you should write about, the better your chances of doing good in that class.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    Professor Alfaro was such a wonderful teacher. I cannot even begin to explain it. His workload was not heavy and the class was so much fun. He opens discussions to the entire class and creates an environment where students feel comfortable sharing their thoughts and opinions.

    Course highlights:

    Coming into this class, I had no idea how much room I had to improve as a writer and in my reading skills. Professor Alfaro really did a wonderful job at motivating and assisting me in these two areas. He exposed me to works of literature which I had never heard of in high school, but wish that I had! He highlighted all sorts of issues our society is currently facing and have faced for years and encouraged us to voice our opinions on these issues and educate ourselves on these issues as well.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    In order to succeed, you need to read all of the assignment readings in depth and really just take this course seriously, rather than another required course to get out of the way. Attendance is also important; however, it should not be an issue, because this class is fun to be in.
