    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This class will build off of the basic essay writing we all learned through school. It was stretch you a little bit more, but as long as you just do the work, the class isn't too bad.

    Course highlights:

    I learned a lot about using more than just 5 paragraphs for an essay.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Just keep on top of the essays!

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course for a number of reasons: 1) Concise writing techniques, and honing writing practices, and purging bad writing habits, 2) In-depth grammar and punctuation-a major continual learning situation, 3) Deepening critical and personal writing skills.

    Course highlights:

    What I gained from this writing course was the ability to organize my thought, better use of an outline, be more precise in my brain-storming and formulating ideas, plus giving me the ability to intertwine critical and personal writing skills, but also gained a strong ability for course and essay writing

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    What is needed to succeed from this course is pay attention, get a thesaurus, and a dictionary, take study notes, be complete in your writing thoughts, listen to the other students questions and ask, ask, ask questions. Always do the reading exercises, and be involved.
