    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this class because, after taking this course, I noticed a significant change in the way I outlined and executed my writing.

    Course highlights:

    I learned lots of important skills throughout the duration of this course, however, the highlights included: learning more about evidence selection and learning to drift away from the standard 5-paragraph essay format. I learned that academic writing does not have to be as strict as it is made out to be.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    The single most important tip i have is to keep up with readings. It is important to stay engaged in class and understand what the professor and your classmates are discussing.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    Well its a necessary course, but Dr. Costello is a great professor. She comes to class each day with energy and tries to make a boring class a little interesting. She gives you plenty of time to complete assignments and although she isn't an easy grader. if you show her you work hard she'll help you.

    Course highlights:

    You learn how to write a really, really good research paper, but also how to write a literature review and several other valuable components to a good research paper. Anybody going into a research field will benefit from the class

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Stay on top of assignments and meet with the writing center and Dr. Costello often. All of these sources will help you succeed and will show the professor you want to do well. If you slack off on assignments its hard to catch up.
