Always Do the Reading
Lots of Writing
Not too easy. Not too difficult.
The literature read in class was enjoyable and eye opening, as were the class discussions. It is an opinion and analysis based class. We do a great deal of writing, both creative and non fiction, and I personally feel like my writing ability grew enormously because of this course.
I learned to be a better writer. I learned to eliminate fluff from my writing and say what I mean, without bogging my sentences down with unnecessarily large vocabulary words. I learned to love non fiction writing, which I had always avoided.

Advice for students:
Participate in class as much as you can! This was a stumbling point for me, as public speaking is not a strength of mine. But class discussion is a big part of this course, so speaking up will definitely benefit you.
