This class was tough.
This course is great for opening up your eyes to how words have the ability to create strong emotions and persuade people to take action. This course also teaches you to perfect the art of arguing (on paper that is). Before taking this class, I wish I had read more about philosophy as many of the essays you read can be connected to human nature.
I really liked reading some of the books and short stories that went along with the courses theme of Classic American Literature. I learned how to sharpen my writing skills and how to write a gripping argument.

Advice for students:
After you read the assigned chapter for homework study your annotations. The quizzes are very specific and just reading the chapter will not suffice the majority of the time.
