    | Would not recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Unfortunately, this is a course is required to be taken by all students, so a bad reccomendation does not mean you should not take it, because you need to! My overall experience with this class was very poor. For starters, we were forced to focus on a broad topic outside of our choosing; for my class it was civil rights based. This meant that the project we were working on throughout the semester had to in some way related back to civil rights, which while interesting, is not everyone's cup of tea, and made it difficult to really lock in and get excited to write about your topic. Further, my professor for this class seemed a bit inept at what he was doing. There were several times I recall being directly given incorrect information on how to implement quotes and make word choices within my paper. Now on average, I don't like to assume or even think that I know more than the professor, but in this case, I made an exception. This was mainy because English has always been my best subject, with multiple teachers having praised my writing for its word choice and ability to easily incorportae quotes into my paper without it reading awkwardly. All in all, I think the intention behind making students take the class is a good one, because it is important to know how to analyze various documents and their views as well as how learning how to take a stand on a specific issue. With some modifications I think this could definitely be a course that students would enjoy. As of right now however, it falls significantly flat.

    Course highlights:

    This course was designed to teach students how to rhetorically analyse documents not only to fit their arguments, but also to see what the author themselves was trying to say within the text. The course emphasized various different type of rhetoric that authors use, and showed students how to identify them within a text. Further, the course helped students learn how to use the resources available through SLU to find various different primary and secondary courses for our projects.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    I highly, HIGHLY, reccommend not leaving your drafts and final papers to the last minute to complete. At the very least you should have all of your sources already picked and ready to go if you are someone who only does their writing at the last minute. Trust me, scrambling to find 6 different primary and secondary sources the night before the papers due and still having to write the paper is not a walk in the park.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    Advanced Stratergies of Rhetoric and Research was a very engaging and writing-intensive class that dove deep into critical thinking writing. Most of the assignments challenged students to critically analyze a topic or subject and dive deep into details.

    Course highlights:

    Writing a 10 page research paper of our own choosing was a challenge but prepared me for college work while giving me an opportunity to learn more about a topic outside of literature.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Start your papers well in advance instead of the night before.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this class because it is very informative and this teacher is always available for help. This teacher is always keeping the class going and never lets any distractions get in the way.

    Course highlights:

    I truly enjoyed all the readings we did during class. These helped me better understand the information that was given to me. I could refer back to these to help me study. The teacher was always a joy to be with.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Take notes in class even if the information seemed easy to understand. You will need these to refer back to. Don't slack off because it is easy to fall behind in. Lastly, don't be afraid to ask questions when you don't understand something.
