    | Would highly recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Professor Martin is someone who will give you one on one time if you truly need it. He wants his students to understand the process of writing and really spends time with people when they need it. Super interesting class even though it is required. I learned a lot about writing and I feel like I actually improved a lot more than I thought I would.

    Course highlights:

    We had to write three papers which sounded awful, but the way Professor Martin paced through them made it very easy. He had us read background knowledge on the subject we were to write about and then we would talk about it during class to make sure we understood what we read. I learned a lot about the topics we wrote about and I even researched my own background knowledge to make sure my papers were completely accurate. He focuses on making sure his students know how to cite correctly and that everything flows. His office meetings really helped me get what I needed out of his course.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Make sure that you listen to him as he speaks in the class. Do not wait until the last minute to write your paper, it requires a lot of research and time if you want a good grade. He's someone who is very approachable do not be afraid to raise your hand in class and participate or shoot him an email when you need help. Amazing teacher, don't hate him because he's teaching English and you hate English. He's trying his best to help his students.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    Going into this course, I was excited. Mainly because I'm a self-proclaimed English major, and i was dying to take an English course. Unknowingly however, I had entered a course that surrounded itself with the culture, and politics of food. This was a field that was foreign to me. Being that I never truly thought or cared about what I ate. However, it was an eye opening experience. I was able to learn about agriculture from the past, as well as the present.

    Course highlights:

    While I learned a great deal of knowledge about farming, it was not the only thing I gained from this course. The highlight of this course, was learning that writing is rewriting. That everything I've written, doesn't entail that it's the final product. I've learned that I can always go back, with a new perspective. This became applicable when our teacher allowed students, to resubmit their drafts, and always encouraging us to update and polish our work.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Definitely, read the course materials. Although obvious, it's a necessity. All of the assignments are influenced from the readings, as well as your own thoughts. So I would recommend reading the materials, as well as understanding the concepts thoroughly. I'd also suggest writing down your own thoughts, and opinions on the topics that are discussed. Also, if you agree/disagree with the topics discussed, try and search for outside sources that could support your claim. It'd be a step ahead for the writing assignments, considering your own opinion is valid.
