    | No strong feelings either way.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This course is interesting in giving advice to. The point of this class is to learn how to write a big research paper that is 10-12 pages. Throughout the class it was hard for me to get through because the first 20 or 30 minutes we would discuss the topics we needed to, but after that the professor would always get off topic for the rest of the class, which was about a hour and a half. While getting through the class was a bit painful, I did learn a lot about how to research for my paper, how to format my paper, how to make an effective argument, etc. I did learn a lot of valuable skills in writing research papers that stretched into all of my other classes that required essays or smaller research papers. So despite the slow, painful process of learning all of that, I think the skills are worth it and needed throughout college.

    Course highlights:

    I learned a lot about how to create a research paper. First we started out with learning how to take notes and use resources in your paper. Then we learned to quote resources that disagree with your point of view so we can make a stronger refute. We also learned how to format the paper and keep everything connected to the prompt or theme of your paper.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    I would tell students considering this course to be aware that this class will get off topic for the majority of class, and be prepared for that. But to also remember that you will learn a lot from this class if you stick with it and pay attention to the important parts of making a research paper that the professor will point out.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Sandy is a dedicated instructor who is passionate in her topic for English 102. She explains things clearly and uses a lot of visuals for her visual learners. She is one of the greatest instructors I have ever had.

    Course highlights:

    We did research in the Harlem Renaissance. We learned about the seeds that were planted in the 1920s that sprouted during the Civil Rights Movement. I learned there is a hidden history among African American culture that had significant impact during the Civil Rights Movement. There is so much to uncover once I began my research, it was all so inspiring!

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    Be sure to come to class everyday. Be serious about doing your research, there is so much to uncover, just take some time and do research and be sure to journal what you find interesting. Putting your thoughts on a journal throughout the course will make putting the research paper together so much easier. Sandy is willing to help anyone who asks, just utilize the tools you are given.

    Don't stop typing and writing. This class is on research papers, so be prepared to write.
