    Make sure to do the readings and put forth some genuine effort. This class isn't terribly time consuming, and I got an easy A!

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    It is an English class, so there is a ton of writing, but the professor makes class super interesting and easy to follow. Professor Hana Al-Harastani was actually new to the university, so this was her first class. She seemed just as nervous as us, which was refreshing because I had met many professors that had the "too old for this crap" mentality. She really cares about her pupils.

    Course highlights:

    The course followed a curriculum including an intensive study of discourse communities. With this core concept we chose our own groups and communities to write about, and we developed five essays that culminated into a 12 page long research paper. There were also other writing assignments and plenty of opportunity for extra credit. The best part about the class was that we got to choose what we wrote about. For too long in English classes did I have to write about some boring topic I had no interest in; this class allowed for me to write about a topic I was passionate about.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Get ready to write a lot! But in all seriousness this class is not too hard if you just time yourself properly. Trying to write a six page paper the night before it's due is a fate I would not wish upon my worst enemy. Just pay attention, to the homework, and write the essays. If you're having trouble, the professor is more than happy to help, and there are other resources such as tutors and the UCF writing workshop.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    Peter Ives takes this class into a unique perspective by leading us away from theories and focusing more on the story that each of us has to tell. The first few classes he emphasizes the idea that every piece of writing is a story and what's most important about writing is how you tell it. He encourages students to write about their day because writing it down makes it real and when you look back on it, it helps you to write your own story, should you choose to do so. His class requires three essays which are all formal in style but story like in content. The first assignment was to pick something you or someone you know owned or owes and write the memories associated to that artifact. He was willing to read over your paper before it was do as long as you took his advice into consideration and made changes to your paper since he did not want to read the same paper twice. He loves class participation and takes that into consideration when grading and near the end of the semester for any grade changes. I think it will be impossible to get a 100 on a paper, but it is not impossible to get an A or pass the class. The final was a field study paper that required you to go to an event or place and write down your observations and related analysis. He provides a lot of example papers and again, he is willing to help you! Just work for the grade you want.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights of this course was the participation Peter Ives asks you to take with the world around you. He asks you to do a field study and learn about something outside of your norm/world/pov. Another thing I got out of this class was encouragement for writing that told stories. This type of writing is easier to do since it isn't all about research and citations and proving a point. It's about the details and moments and is easy to be absorbed in. He also suggests before assigning the first assignment that when writing, you should make a quiet place for yourself in which you allow yourself to be absorbed in your writing and reach a deeper point of story telling. He compares the writing process to an iceberg. If you are distracted on don't write the paper in one sit-down, then you'll continuously brush only the surface of the subject. But if you sit down and only write, then you'll dive deeper and deeper into the matter and reach what's most important, the biggest part of the iceberg. He backs up this example by telling us that the surface of the iceberg wasn't what mattered to the Titanic, but what was underneath the water. One last take-back from this class is saying what you need to say and nothing more. It's finding the balance with the required details, the interesting details, and the overboard "I'm trying to reach a word count" details. He does have a word count maximum.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Start brain storming for your paper as soon as it is assigned. Start writing rough drafts or planning once you see yourself leaning towards an idea or by the next class. Have friends, classmates, or the teacher read over your paper throughout various stages. Read over your own paper with different objectives in mind, one objective per each read over. First, focus on what the subject is and what relates tot he subject and what doesn't. Then on organization. Focus on detail, writing style, grammar and punctuation. Think of word choice and the emotional or emphasizing powers certain words have. And most of all, don't be afraid to pour your heart out into the paper and to write whatever comes to mind. Practice free-writes to give you idea for topics and don't take it personally if Peter finds things he doesn't like in your paper or that he thinks is missing.
