Always Do the Reading
Lots of Writing
Many Small Assignments
Not too easy. Not too difficult.
The teacher is absolutely wonderful. She listens to each student and helps them form their ideas into her assignments. Also, the class teaches great writing skills that put students ahead of college freshmen.
The main objective in this course was to understand and apply rhetorical sensitivity. I learned how to construct my essays so that they got to the point quicker; how to write so that even readers who did not agree with my stance would still listen and possibly change their minds; and how to turn dull, rigidly structured essays into engaging arguments by using my voice correctly.

Advice for students:
Whatever you do, do not procrastinate! There is a lot of writing and note taking in this class, and leaving everything off until the last minute will only give you stress and poorly written essays. Also, do not be afraid to ask the teacher questions. She gives great advice on how to put your ideas into the requirements for the essay. However, do not wait until the last minute and be sure to warn her ahead of time that you want to ask a question, or else she will not answer.
