    | 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.

    | Would highly recommend.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    This class is not a hard course in which you wont be able to understand anything. This class in fact is interesting and easy to comprehend. With this professor he will have you thinking outside of the box and if there is anything that you do not understand then he will gladly find a way to help you understand.

    Course highlights:

    In this class I learned what a rhetorical analysis is and how to construct my own rhetorical analysis. The highlights from this course were the group projects and class discussions. We would be assigned chapters of our book to read and then the next time we were in class we would have class discussions on the chapters we were assigned to read.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Make sure you read all of the assigned chapters and pay attention. But the main thing i could advise is to do not forget to do your blogs. Make sure you stay on track when it comes to doing your blogs and making comments on other students blogs.
