    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    The class is small enough that the professor can spend individual time with each student, and the combination of extra credit and unlimited essay revisions until the last day of class means there is literally no reason for a student to fail. The professor is highly knowledgeable on the material taught, and is extremely dedicated to each and every student's success. Cannot recommend this course and specific professor enough!

    Course highlights:

    In this course, a student mainly will focus on the art of argumentative writing and rhetorical analysis. You will learn how to do proper research on a topic of your choice, and how to adequately defend your stance on the chosen topic. At the same time, you will also learn how to spot strengths and weaknesses of another person's argument and offer feedback on how to improve. An additional bonus outcome of this course is that you will learn how to write in the manuscript style native to your given major. For example, students studying in liberal arts fields will write all essays in MLA format, those in the sciences will write only in APA, and so on and so forth. This course essentially provides and teaches all of the major components necessary to writing at the college level and above, and creativity is highly encouraged.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    In class participation is extremely important, and is expected of all students, so be sure to purchase the required textbook and be constantly prepared to give your opinions on the assigned chapter readings. Take advantage of the professors office hours, peer review days, extra credit opportunities, and the tutoring center, as these will be key components for success. In addition, be sure to turn in all essays on time, even if they are not complete by the due date. As long as you have the essay turned in on time, you have unlimited revisions to earn a better grade up to the last day of class. This rule does exclude the fourth and final essay, so do not slack on that one. Lastly, work hard! There is no excuse to fail in this class!

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course because the teacher is extremely thorough in her grammar lessons. I learned so much about English grammar that I had never known, and this information helped me to succeed in my other classes that required essays.

    Course highlights:

    The highlight of this course for me was the application and use of "Writing Tools" by Roy Peter Clark. This book is an amazing resource for writers because the chapters are short yet in-depth in a way that makes it a quick and useful guide to all forms of writing.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Read all of the material assigned and share your opinion in class during discussions.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    The class is centered around research you are interested in and as you move on in the class you delve deeper into a topic and learn things you didn't know about. Professor Warner does a great job encouraging students to critically think about their topic.

    Course highlights:

    The final assignment is a 4-part research presentation and it showed each students approach to the unknown. I learned how to organize my research and how to target a specific audience when presenting.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    If you are considering taking this course you should definitely be prepared to stay ahead of the reading assignments she assigns and start writing your papers early so you have time for revisions.
