Always Do the Reading
Not too easy. Not too difficult.
Throughout the course we analyzed many pieces of writing whether it be poems, short stories or novels. We wrote essays regarding what we read and the techniques the author used, we were given assignments asking our ideas on articles and editorials we read, we learned all of the different rhetorical devices and how to annotate pieces of writing.
My favorite part of this course had to be all of the different rhetorical devices I learned, which helped you discover the meanings authors attempted to convey in their writing. It was almost like solving a puzzle, interpreting each sentence using this technique. There were endless possibilities and made reading enjoyable for me. Rhetorical devices also helped me understand more difficult texts.

Advice for students:
Once you receive an assignment, spread it out throughout your week. Set aside 30 minutes a day or do 5 questions every night. This way you'll have time for other assignments, but you will retain the information you're learning. By cramming it all in one day, you will not be benefitting from the assignment you will just be trying to "get it done."
