Not too easy. Not too difficult.
ENG 101 has to be a highlight of my semester. Not only did I learn more about my own writing skills and tendencies but I was also able to exhibit the skills I already have in writing. The Professor actually wanted to help each of her students grow in their own abilities instead of having us all write the same.
Highlights of the course were, one-on-one meetings with the professor. You would set up a time and then she would help you with the topic you chose for the specific paper. Another highlight is she started off the semester with a paper that was about her students. We each wrote a descriptive essay about something memorable that happened in our lives and it really helped us to get excited about writing. Finally, she never used red ink on your paper. While that may sound dumb, it actually helps. I have never been so happy to receive a paper that had purple or pink ink instead of red. It helped me lose some of my anxiety when writing.

Advice for students:
Actually do the work, and ask questions. Professor Miller is a very understanding and helpful person and she really wants her students to grow as writers while in her class. Also go to the one-on-one meeting. It will help you.
