Lots of Writing
Requires Lots of Research
This class was tough.
I would highly recommend Professor Hall's WRD 104 class to DePaul freshmen. It is a class that causes students to research a political or social issue and provide real-world solutions to that political/social issue. For one, you learn how to research. For another, you learn how to take a position. While conducting research and taking a position, you also learn how to write at a 300-level. Professor Hall's WRD 104 course is challenging, yet rewarding.
One of the highlights of this course was knowing how to properly conduct research. Every blog, every scholarly article, and every statistic counts. Another highlight of this course was to look at both sides of an argument. College students tend to only research one side of an argument which in turn makes them biased. Professor Hall's course caused me to research both sides of an argument and pick the side that has the most substantive evidence for the researcher. All in all, I learned great research skills.

Advice for students:
Be prepared to work hard. Professor Hall doesn't hand out A's like candy. Students have to work for those A's. Also prepare to tackle controversial political and social issues. This is a college-level course, not a playpen. Students must be mature enough to talk about political and social issues like civil adults.
