    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    Yes I would recommend this course! Professor Stapleton always says “write and don’t think” because writers keep writing. He always says motivational things to his students and gives them a chance to redo their work to earn that A.

    Course highlights:

    Although I haven’t finished this course, since the theme of the class is the “self” I’ve learned that by writing about yourself you read back and appreciate everything you’ve been through because at the end of the day that is what makes you grow and shapes who you are. Being in certain situations and getting through them shows the main reason why you should continue pursuing your dreams no matter what!

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Read! I can’t express how important it is to read. Reading helps you becomes a better writer and you save yourself the trouble of having mechanical errors or other typos.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    A wonderful class to take if you are struggling with sentence structure and catching a reader's attention in a story/essay.

    Course highlights:

    I learned more about grabbing the reader's attention, as well a structure my thoughts and reasonings more fluently.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Keep in mind that it is somewhat a lot of writing, but will benefit you in the long run.
