    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    This course challenges those who enjoy writing in that the subject matter is centralized around something challenging to write about. This semester it was terrorism. Professor Smith has an incredible way about bringing writing and research together as one.

    Course highlights:

    I have learned that regardless of the difficulty and lack of knowledge, I have the ability to write about anything if I exercise the tools and resources around me to expand my knowledge. Learning how to analyze argument and argue for or against something based solely in reason and logic when it is an emotional subject really helped develop my skills as a writer.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Be open and play devils advocate, especially with yourself.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I had an incredible loving and consistent teacher. I loved her teaching methods and styles along with her caring heart. She was a professor who was tough but she genuinely cared and she just wanted to make sure we did our work and did our absolute best. I was going through some family issues and added some new responsibilities so I never finished but I wish I would have just put forth a little more effort, attended class a tad bit more and communicated with her more so I wouldn't have lost any scholarships and would have been successful. I had all the tools in front of me I just wasn't ready to use them all.

    Course highlights:

    Proper grammar and usage of language was definitely a big factor. As a class we practiced proper forms of verbs, nouns and when needed she even refreshed our minds on what we should have already known rather than leaving us to dry. We were given three main assignments with plenty of time in between to complete everything on time and were given several changes to make things right.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    For students considering this course I would tell them from the start to make sure they have a plan for the unplanned. I never imagined I would be in the situations I am in now. Although I wanted to do good in school I wasn't ready. I still had a lot of unfinished business that was yet to be dealt with and sure enough murphy's law occurred. I would suggest to have all living situations, childcare issues and family issues as well as financial issues squared away before attempting college because no one wants to waste money and your time is precious.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    This was a wonderful course. This course was online and I honestly wasn't expecting much but it was great. The instructor was incredibly helpful and always there when you needed her. The assignments were easy to follow and learn online and there was never an overload on class work.

    Course highlights:

    Instructor was always there to help and or give feedback or tips on assignments. Instructor was also very flexible in working with students if there was an issue. This course helped me learn a lot more about grammar and how to correctly write papers. I also learned some great annotating techniques and more basic skills needed for any sort of writing assignment,

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    Be willing to talk to the instructor if you need to. She always reached out to me and commented back but it is just as easy and affective to contact her if needed and she always responded in a timely manner. Don't be afraid to ask for help.
