    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    This course will challenge your personal writing skills as well as your perception of the world, leading to strong argument development but more importantly a better understanding of bias and fallacies laced in everyday advertisements, articles, and agendas. These skills will assist you in creating well-rounded papers that focus on strong, fact-based data instead of claims (and the instructor is great at unveiling the difference!).

    Course highlights:

    I learned how to be more objective while analyzing my own work, as well as articles from trusted sources and how to find strong data to support my claims. The class analyzes controversial claims, but instead of arguing for or against it, the course argued why people are for or against it, how both arguments are fallacious and how to improve them.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    The honors course is challenging. Expect writing at least four essays with strict deadlines on topics you may not be extremely interested in--but know that it is making you a better writer and therefore a stronger analyzer and persuader! You will also learn how to do research properly. The best thing to do is walk in open-minded, open to constructive criticism and be specific in your arguments! (She loves specificity.)

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    This was the toughest class I have ever taken, English 103 Critical Thinking. Dr. Davis made me work harder and really understand the material. It has made my writing better for it.

    Course highlights:

    With each essay I had to write I noticed that they got progressively better throughout the course. In my writing it showed that I was really learning what Dr. Davis was teaching me and reflected in all my writing since.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    Do every single assignment. Do the extra credit. Read everything. Not only will it reflect in your grade, but also in your future academic and professional careers. This class went beyond a requirement to graduate. As hard as it was, I enjoyed it and definitely reaped the benefits.
