    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    You work hard in the class, but it takes writing to a whole new level. I used to try to cover a certain amount of words, but now I deeply write and that is a lot more fun than just covering an amount.

    Course highlights:

    I learned that everything we think or do comes from assumptions that we make all the time. Everyone holds things dear to them and what we think or do matters to all of us. What other people think about we do, doesn't matter as much.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Learn how to make an essay powerful, not just a decent essay. The best way is to write an essay that is way longer than you need, and then condense it into a powerful package that will be of great use to your readers. Also write for a call to action. There are a lot of good books, but without a call to action, they are just words on a page.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    It is a pretty average class. You end up writing about one essay a week, and there is a reading assignment due every Monday that you build off of. Attendance is important.

    Course highlights:

    You learn how to write Personal Essays, and Research Essays. I have used the skills from this course repeatedly.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Do the readings on time. You get quizzed on them every week.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    The basis of this class was to learn how to evaluate written arguments, detect fallacies, and present more persuasive and accurate arguments in your own writing. Professor Hammar drove us to be analytical and thorough, and enjoyed stimulating class discussion and interaction. I loved the course and I enjoyed working with the Professor.

    Course highlights:

    The highlight, for me, was when we were assigned to analyze a published essay or article, searching for fallacies, inaccurate portrayal of statistics, or illogical assumptions. We were able to put in practice what we had studied so far, and it was rewarding to see how much better I understood the author's argument and could dispute it with my own opinion.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Be thorough! Professor Hammar loves thoroughness. We were given a reading assignment for almost every class, and were expected to bring a hard copy of it, annotated and highlighted, for him or his TA to grade. The more you mark up that paper with ANYTHING you found interesting or thought provoking, the better it will be received. He used to quote something about "a book isn't actually yours until you have written all over it," and he expected you to apply that to every piece of assigned reading you brought in. It isn't hard. Just be thoughtful.
