    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course because as a running start student who hasn't learned much in English class for the last four years I came out of this course with an abundance of new knowledge. In so many cases I feel like courses just repeat old information resulting in no knew knowledge. But in this class I was challenged from the beginning of the course until the end of the course and I learned so much. I feel like I finished this class as a smarter person and a better writer.

    Course highlights:

    Oddly enough one major highlight of the course was the lectures. My professor was a born speaker and often times told stories to help students grasp ideas. His teaching style made students look forward to his lectures instead of dread them. I learned a lot about essay writing but mostly I learned how to structure paragraphs, think critically, and how to research a topic in a more effective manner.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    I would tell students considering this course to not be afraid of challenges and to ask questions because while this class is quite difficult it is worth it. So, if you take this course then don't be afraid to ask questions because you will get helpful answers and just dive in head first. This class is work intensive and it doesn't baby you so just go for it.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Firstly, this was hands down the best English course I have taken, to date. Professor Mantooth, while firm on structure and grammar, was very open to voice and style. He was there to read you for you, not to try and force you into anyone else's writing type.

    Course highlights:

    My favorite part about his course was the flexibility we were given. We had a good selection of reading to do, but we weren't required to respond to all of it. In fact, he encouraged us to simply take the pieces that really resonated and run with them, while not sweating any of the topics that we couldn't find a response for. The greatest technique I learned from his class was Free Writing. Just sitting down and letting any and all of the words simply spill onto the page--no restrictions. I use it all the time.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    If you have questions, ask them. Don't hesitate. And don't be intimidated by a bunch of corrections on a page, he is definitely not there to attack anything you've put down. If it's grammatically wrong or the structure is off somehow he'll mark it, but it's never abrasive and always helpful.
