    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I'd recommend this class to anyone who is willing to put forth the effort required to take it. For the entire course we wrote a total of six essays, but as the course progressed the essays became harder and longer. If you do the reading and listen to the lectures, as well as ask the teacher for help while writing your essays, then the course is one of the best classes to take for your senior year.

    Course highlights:

    The highlight of this course was definitely how relatable the teacher made our lessons by incorporating movies or concepts that everyone knew about. Through this we learned psychological behaviors, feminine stigmas, and used this to write a variety of papers.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    This course doesn't require much studying as there are no tests in the class, but it does require students to put some time aside to do reading that will be discussed in the next class. If you become lazy with the reading then writing a paper using the reading will be difficult and cause extra work to be put on your shoulders. A good tip is to set aside at least thirty minutes to sit down and read the material given to you so you have an idea of what will be discussed the next day.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would definitely recommend this course because although it may appear difficult due to it being through Indiana University, my teacher worked with me whenever I needed her to ensure I succeeded in her class.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights of this course were the discussions we would have after completing our reading to better understand the text, the ample amount of time and resources we had when completing our papers, and the positive feedback I would get from my teacher to ensure that I kept improving in my writing ability.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    In order to succeed in this class, you have to make sure to do the reading and understand what you read (even if it means asking questions for what you do not understand) and put your pride away when it comes to asking for help. The teacher and most classmates are great resources for feedback on a paper or annotating a passage that was assigned for homework. The workload is not too difficult but that doesn't mean it is an easy A.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this class, because it is a college level IU writing course, where you learn the fundamentals of mature writing and get to practice and develop your writing skills. It teaches you how to effectively analyze a source and use sources in your papers. ;

    Course highlights:

    I gained an abundance of skills, including how to use word choice to your advantage, how to analyze a text, how to use text in conversation and how to use writing to convey ideas.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Do not wait to do your papers. Use the multi-draft essay style to your advantage, it will save you time and in turn improve your paper and writing skills.
