    | Would highly recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend taking Comp 101 with Jenny Wright because she was an amazing professor. She explains everything step-by-step and makes sure every student understands what we are learning before moving on to the next section. One thing I learned in class was grammar. I've always thought I was good with grammar, but after taking freshman composition I learned that there are some things I was misusing; for example, where to put commas. Overall, I thought the class was going to be hard, but Professor Wright always explained everything thoroughly in a way that everyone could understand, and if there were any questions--she always had an answer. Also, she didn't overload us with homework because she wanted to make sure whatever we were on (grammar, for example) was understood before moving on. I enjoyed having Comp 101 with her so much that I actually signed up for Freshman Composition 2 with her!

    Course highlights:

    The highlights of this course were grammar, and how to develop an argument. Most arguments are not put together thoroughly, and are not worded well; however, after learning about logos, pathos, and ethos, I know how to make a compelling argument--not to mention applying the appropriate grammar I have learned in my argument.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    In order to succeed, make sure you pay attention in class! Asking questions is a great way to gain clarification, and always participate in discussions. Getting to know my classmates was one of the best things I did in that class because we had to do peer review for papers, and instead of being nervous about another classmate reading my paper, I was comfortable. I knew that they would give constructive criticism, but only to better myself in my writing. Also, do the homework! We go over the homework in class, so if you got an answer wrong you'll find out why you got it wrong, and how to fix it.
