    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    English 111 offered an array of literal selections that provoked more open thinking. I thoroughly enjoyed being introduced to new writers and new concepts. My professor challenged our understanding and opinions of the concepts introduced during the course. I Loved this class! English 1 introduced the disciplines of writing and literature. This course really opened my eyes to the range of writing styles and variety of literature.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights of this course include various essays from interesting writers. The best part of this course is the introduction into the technical components of writing such as writing for your target audience, the basic writing styles used by all writers, and the introduction to writing as a craft. The authors' notes were great for understanding the writers perspective in life, giving the reader greater insight into the writer's purpose behind the creation. One of the most surprising essays we studied during the course focused on a little girl willing to go to extremes to receive an education; it paid off in a big way! English 111 is a very thought-provoking course that will help writers better understand how to structure a literal masterpiece.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Create a daily study plan to stay ahead of the course. It is very important that you have time to read the material in it's entirety at least two times; this will allow for better absorption of the information and a more thorough critical analysis. Lastly, taking notes alongside reading the essay or story is a must for developing a better writing style.

    Hours per week:

    Stay ahead, focus, and draft your essays and utilize the feedback you are given. Do not wait till the last minute to write your essays.
