    Pretty easy, overall.

    Advice for students:

    Give it your all, simply because Canaan is a sweet woman doesn't necessarily mean you deserve a good grade. Work with her to create your best you.

    | Probably wouldn’t recommend.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I would only recommend this course with this specific professor if you are really up for a challenge and you take criticism lightly. I had this professor last semester ,and though Karim did challenge the way I think. As well as challenging my skills as a writer, Karim was quite harsh with the grading scale. This is an Intro level class but its graded like a graduate class. The smallest falter of words can drop your grade a letter. This course really focuses on making you think about what and how your writing, and challenging you to prove your beliefs beyond a doubt in the most concrete of forms. I would definitely not want to take this class again but those who want to become better writers should definitely consider it.

    Course highlights:

    I learned how to build a concrete argument and how to properly peer review others papers with brute honesty while still being helpful. I learned that just because you completed the requirements doesn't exactly mean you completed the assignment.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    Just be ready for long work nights and many revisions before you even make it to the classroom. Karim is not a bad professor, she has a method to her madness. If you think for a second that you can not keep up with her work load, drop immediately. The work only gets larger and more difficult. For each 30 minutes in class truely spend time analyzing the material. If you can, type everything she says verbatim because it will definitely help in the long run. Good luck.
