Not too easy. Not too difficult.
I would highly recommend this course. Professor Kambui is a wonderful teacher and really breaks things up for students to really understand. She has a great personality and it allows to students to come to her with ease for help.
I notice that our English 101 class has learned skills necessary to develop personal, informative, and persuasive essays. These are essential attributes needed to become successful in today's society. In previous English courses that I have participated in, I never realized that essay writing skills were so important. Because of this class, my attitude toward writing has matured into an understanding of what it takes to be a good writer. Without the knowledge of why writing skills were important, I was concerned about "just getting by". Now, I enjoy the challenge of composing an interesting and thought provoking essay; I find myself developing an essay with my reader in mind, and pondering what might stimulate them to read my work. This class has awakened my senses and aroused my curiosity in the literary world and I feel I have made significant strides in my writing process. The most important of which being how, by the proper use of commas, transitions, and supportive quotes, I transform my mediocre essay into a well composed, interesting literary work.

Advice for students:
You have to do your work and be willing to learn. You have to come to peer reviews, do your work, and be able to take the constructive criticism and apply it to your writing. Make time to do the reading and papers with plenty of time to revise. Always come to class prepared with the correct materials and be ready to learn something new.
