    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    She's very helpful, responses fast to questions, and sent me the first few chapters through email when the book I ordered was on backorder. What more can I ask for?

    Course highlights:

    So far, I've only been in the class for a week. This is my first year. But I've learned a lot about writing narrative and exploitative essays. I learned about how important thesis placement and transitions are. As well as better tips for explaining details and situations. I've also learned how to expand into beyond five paragraph essays.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Just read, pay attention, and work hard.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Jesus gives a good amount of information and helpful criticism on how to write better essays. He focuses a lot of creative writing, and gives the necessary tools to make great essays

    Course highlights:

    I'd say his lectures. He hits a bunch of extremely controversial topics, that many of us had strong opinions about. He really helped me think more critically through his lectures. Even if you don't agree with much of the stuff he says, he helps his students think more deeply into why they believe what they believe in. This class helped me gain more insight into controversial topics, and not just believe what other people say.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Do all the assignments, since they bump up your grade significantly. Keep all your work, since by the end of the semester he does a binder check and checks out all of the work you have in there. (Probably to see the improvement over time, since he re-reads I think). Read everything he assigns since you're expected to be able to discuss it the next class. There's no final in his class, except a final essay about the second book he makes you read. So read both books.
