    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Dr. Murphy is by far my favorite professor I have had the pleasure of having while at ASU. Her curriculum allows for students to chose their own topics to write on allowing for students to get far more involved with their topics than if she had assigned rubrics.

    Course highlights:

    The highlight of the course was the semester long research paper we worked on. We focused on this paper heavily through the course and revised it multiple times. This taught me about writing long papers and being persistent while nitpicking through the various grammar errors and spelling mistakes.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Don't procrastinate, you will get assigned essays often and if you put them off it will come back to haunt you.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I took this class online and it was one of the best organized that I've ever taken. The instructor is highly responsive, and genuinely wants you to succeed.

    Course highlights:

    The structure of this online course was group collaboration, and 2 written projects with drafts. The best part of the class was the instructor support. For each draft created, he screencast his remarks and advice and posted it so that you could look back at it when doing your edits. Writing fellows and student peers are also involved in review.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Don't let the digital portfolio get away from you. Make sure that you continually update it throughout the course. Make sure that you use personal reflections from your school, work and personal life. Make friends within your assigned group--you have to document meetings, and you'll need their help! One of the best online instructors I've ever had!

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    This turned out to be one of my favorite classes, even though I usually dread any remote English class or writing class. The content is easy to follow because he actually lets you know what he wants to see in essays and what will work in a general scope of essay writing and analysis.

    Course highlights:

    I effectively learned how to write a well oriented research paper, something that is usually intimidating and frightening to many students, as it is usually a large portion of the grading scale. With Dr. Linthicum's help, this task was made extremely easy and fun to do!

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Take it even if you hate English, as I guarantee it will make any writing you do that much better. It's a great introduction to higher level writing and he's a very approachable person for asking questions. Do not be intimidated by his rhetoric and flamboyant words.
