    | Would recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This course was interesting and it changed my mindset on reading. As a kid I used to love reading books but as I got older I did it less and less but with this class I was forced to read multiple chapters for class discussion and there was no way you could participate in the class discussion without reading the book. We read a book Called Oryx and Crake which was very weird but it turned out to be an interesting book. This course forced me to better my writing skills because we had to compare a life changing event to a movie.

    Course highlights:

    I learned that timing is very important and skimming chapters is never a good idea. I also learned you can never know too many writing skills and that you never know as much as you think.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Make sure to keep up on your journal entries. Also do not think you will read the assigned chapters in the morning and on your way to class because it will not work. Do not try and guess what you think will be an important note for the discussion because the smallest detail that you missed while skimming may just be something you needed for class.

    | Would recommend.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course because it teaches you how to write necessary genres you will use in your college experience and possibly future career.

    Course highlights:

    There were four main essay assignments, a few homework assignments, and a final in class written essay. You learned grammar, writing style, spelling, and basic writing techniques. It is a basic hot to write an essay course. The professor will guide you through each of your essays and provide feedback.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Email your professor your prompts before they are due for feedback. Do not take feedback personally, as your professor is trying to improve your writing not judge you. Utilize all resources your professor provides you.

    | No strong feelings either way.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    Yes and no. An extremely difficult and pretty harsh professor however a very educating experience and if you can hold back your tears, then you might be able to get a few tips and ideas out of the course.

    Course highlights:

    Was able to increase my thoughts and grammar immensely and be better at organizing my thought processing.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Be prepared to receive harsh advice and work hard.
