    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.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course mainly due to her method of teaching and her introduction of the true purpose of college.

    Course highlights:

    The required reading of "Becoming A Learner" is what truly stuck with me as it creates a whole new perspective on the purpose of college and learning.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Read. Reading the book and from the textbook do in fact allow for an in depth experience in this class.

    | Probably wouldn’t recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This is your standard English class, but the instructor does not put much effort into class. Attending class rarely teaches you anything, but attendance is required per the department. The instructor does not make this class one of his priorities and even extended deadlines because he had not finished grading rough drafts. It's a pretty easy grade if you do all of the assignments on time, but beware the quizzes are often more difficult than you would expect.

    Course highlights:

    The only thing I retained from this class was some of the information in videos we watched to analyze the structure of an argument.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Go to class, read the textbook and do all the drafts of all the essays and you won't have a problem.
