    | No strong feelings either way.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    this class was relatively easy, we have to write 3 papers each 6-8 pages long. For a lot of people in the class it really helped them figure out what career they want to pursue, decide their major, or realize their major inst for them. We focused on rhetorical analysis a lot, specifically in a chosen career field.

    Course highlights:

    Denise is VERY scattered with her lessons, notes, feedback, assignments, powerpoints, blackboard folders and everything in between. Thats not a bad thing but i can be difficult to handle or understand what you need to focus on. I learned that a study group or the librarians were really helpful to sort through everything so you could actually understand and be prepared. The best part of the class what that there were no tests, only 3 papers! and she gave you a lot of freedom with the topics of the papers as long s they were in her parameters.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    the text books she requires arent really necessary, they can be helpful but you really dont need them.

    | Would recommend.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course to anyone who has trouble with figuring out how to incorporate in-text citations into their papers. Professor Wood is extremely helpful to those who ask for help.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights of this course was that we only wrote three major papers, there was plenty of time to revise our papers, and we learned a lot about how to use sources in our writings.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    I would put aside time to study and work on the assignments of this course. If you don't, it's easy to get behind in the course work.

    | Would highly recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Not only is it required, but the course is very useful for those seeking to learn about the various "voices" in writing, when to use each voice, and how to communicate effectively through writing.

    Course highlights:

    I learned a lot about how to communicate in an essay for school versus in an application for a job, or a cover letter to go with my resumé. There was a lot of group work, especially involving peer editing. That helped me learn to effectively communicate strengths and weaknesses I saw in another student's writing, without being vague or overly critical.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Start the assignment the day the teacher mentions it. Not only does that ensure you wontiss the deadline, but it gives you more time to find a topic you're really interested in writing about.
