    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course to everyone. It has helped me learn to become a better writer and be more creative. Without this course I feel like I wouldn't be able to succeed in my other college courses.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights of this course was reading about different writers. I learned their point of view on certain topics and I learned to form an opinion on topics I have never studied before.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    My advice to anyone taking this course is that you have to be ready to work. If you procrastinate than you will not succeed in this class. Also, you have to give your best efforts to be able to do the work assigned to you.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I absolutely loved this course, but then again I also love English. He's a young professor, but very knowledgeable and he has no problem with helping you through anything you need to complete his work.

    Course highlights:

    The proper tools to writing a professional essay. I also enjoined the lesson he did with "The Dead Poet's Society".

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Do it. Don't second guess it. I'm sure you need this to complete your general studies anyway. Wynkoop is a great teacher.

    | Would highly recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course simply because I learned so much about the world around me and was able to apply that to my own life. My teacher was also very helpful and encouraging.

    Course highlights:

    This course helped me expand my knowledge based on historic literature works, write using the proper MLA format, correctly cite my sources from where I obtained the information, and learn all about what to do and not to do when writing an essay.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    I would say you definitely have to read what the professor assigns to you every night. Instead of just summarizing what you read, you will have to dig deeper and explain how the literary work applies to your own life. Have fun!
