    | Would highly recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Patricia Booker is an excellent professor who finds a way to make the class fun and engaging. You learn about the importance of staying informed about world events as well as learning how to effectively write in a number of different formats. Even if you don't pursue a degree in writing for the media, you can take any of the concepts learned in this class and use them for any type of writing in nearly any career field

    Course highlights:

    I learned how to properly edit my writing. I learned the importance of reading and rereading what I write, and going through grammar, spelling, effectiveness. I also learned how important it is to stay informed with what is going on in the world around us, and how important it is to use those event to shape my own understanding of how I think politically, socially, and personally about a host of different issues.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Make sure that you stay informed and have something to contribute. Don't be afraid to ask questions. You don't know what you don't know until you challenge yourself. Finally, make sure you double check all your work. My biggest weakness is class was not double checking my work close enough and letting a lot of small mistakes through.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would definitely recommend this course as it is quite challenging! Ladendorff is a great lecturer and knows what she is talking about. While it is no walk in the park if you love writing you will have a deep appreciation for this course.

    Course highlights:

    I learned many new aspects of writing that I found difficult but intriguing, I learned the do's and don't's of AP style as well as further grammar skills.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    You have to love writing and have an appreciation of writing if you are to want to pass the class. Listen to lectures as the labs are a piece of cake if you pay attention.

    | No strong feelings either way.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    It's a weed out class. Since it is a core class, you have to take it. It's a challenging class, but it's possible to get an A. Pay attention to what your lab instructor tells you!

    Course highlights:

    I had an awesome lab instructor. Rob Sweeting is fantastic! And yes, he is the guy from Channel 4! The most important thing I learned is how to write a strong lead.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    In the lab, you have to write a rough draft, revised draft, and revisions page. When you write your revisions, write good explanations on why you made changes. Don't just make revisions like... "I capitalized the letter H. I added a period." Your revisions should be like... "I changed the structure of the paragraph because it wasn't flowing." You'll have higher grades if you have sound revisions. In other words, don't BS. The lab instructors will call you out on that.
