    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.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    The class will teach you everything you need to know about collegiate writing and proper composition in essay writing.

    Course highlights:

    Students will learn about how to think critically about their sources, how to gather evidence, and how to cite it thereafter. Students should expect to be able to learn how to structure their paper, and also format it according to MLA formatting.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Be cognizant of the fact that you will need to put work and effort into research, and composition of any piece of writing you submit. Also, make sure that you understand what the requirements are, specifically pertaining to the professor you have for the course. The course may vary slightly depending on which professor you have, but there is always help available for this course.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    The teacher is amazing. He's encouraging and compassionate. He pushes me to remain honest with myself in my writing, I tend to be more reserved because of the content I have to share. I couldn't have asked for a better professor for this course.

    Course highlights:

    My favorite assignment so far has been the narrative essay at the beginning of the quarter. It really helped me open up and face some demons from my past. I found much closure and self forgiveness through the process of writing this paper. I'm grateful for that.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Do your work, and do it on time.
