    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    As a university requirement, all UD students must take this course with a few exceptions. Although that is the case, it pays to take this class seriously. It gives students several opportunities to express their thoughts through writing once again. This is especially important for students going into fields which do not involve this sort of activity. Work hard and it will pay off.

    Course highlights:

    Group Projects Writing team papers was certainly a new experience. It was awkward and cumbersome at first, but after working out how to split the work, we were able to make our ideas fairly cohesive. Keep at it!

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    Don't just pass, get something out of this class that you're paying for.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Mrs. P is very friendly and she cares about her students. Most of the class was discussion based and we could express our ideas no matter what they were. Mrs. P was very understanding of our ideas which made for a very friendly and exciting learning environment.

    Course highlights:

    Class discussions were definitely not my strong suit, and at first I was wary of this class because it was so discussion based. However, we were assigned a lot of group projects in this class which helped make me comfortable with my classmates. I was comfortable enough in the classroom to enjoy the debates after a couple weeks and it quickly became one of my favorite classes.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    If you show that you are putting in effort, you will succeed. Mrs. P wants to promote an exciting environment in the classroom, so pay attention and contribute to the class and you will be rewarded for it.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course, specifically with Dr.Tharp. She really gets you out of your comfort zone within writing and encourages you to write how you truly feel about the topic. For example, instead of giving her a written paper, we'd write on our class blog. Our second and third blog posts were both about women in today's cultural, and the Black Lives Matter hashtag. The entire class wrote exactly what they felt, with no fear. It was amazing and really helped me develop.

    Course highlights:

    This course aided me in the development as a writer. I am more confident, knowing what I write actually matters.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    In order to succeed in this course, you NEED an open mind. She'll pair you with multiple partners to peer review each others work, you must be open to suggestions and to give suggestions.
