    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course with Nancy because she expects you to be there everyday and to participate. This class is extremely engaging and not to mention FUN!

    Course highlights:

    From taking this course, I brushed up on my writing skills especially when it came to writing a narrative. I wasn't the best at distinguishing a narrative from other essays but now I am a lot better with this. I also learned that essays don't need a strict format or outline, as long as you cover what you need to throughout your essay while following the amount of pages you are allowed to have, everything will be fine and perhaps more interesting since there isn't a required outline for each essay. Another crucial skill I learned was research...I know research in an English class? What?....Well it's true and I am forever going to use these skills specifically about how to choose the correct database for research. My whole college career I will need to have good research skills therefore this class is a great jump start within this area.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Show up everyday with a positive attitude Write using your personal voice Don't try to impress anyone when writing, just be yourself Talk to the professor often, she's incredibly nice!

    How to be precise and get to the point of an essay.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This class opens your mind to the idea that writing can be fun and inferential. For those who dislike writing, I recommend this class because it will help you desire to want to take this class. Plus, your writing skills will improve tremendously throughout the one semester.

    Course highlights:

    What I believe could be considered highlights for this course is the variety of essays we encountered. I was able to learn a lot more about this campus and the town that neighbors it, thus informing me how to creatively write and learn about my environment.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    The advice I would give to prospective students would be to go to class, if you miss class, you miss important information that could potentially help create an amazing writer out of you. Also, do not be afraid to get help, Professor Jaq is extremely thoughtful when it comes to essays.
