Not too easy. Not too difficult.
Jeremiah offers a lightness in his class that I seldom find anywhere else. He is willing to go above and beyond when helping his students in the class room, offering help whenever possible and very thorough and detailed emails when confusion on an assignment arises. The class itself is not the most exhilarating, but this course was worth taking (even though required) due to the levity in the class room and the support from my peers and Jeremiah.
This course mainly focuses on the writing portion of this two part class. There are four main essays based upon multiple topics and they gradually become less specific making you, the writer, come up with a stance or a topic on whatever he has given you in class. There are also a few smaller assignments that are a page or so in length throughout the semester. Overall, the focus is to make you a more intelligent and overall better writer.

Advice for students:
Do. The. Reading. Just do it. There are articles due just about every class, and most of them are actually enjoyable to read- and if they aren't he is always open to discussing why or what you didn't like about it. Do the reading and turn in assignments on time (there aren't many), and you will be fine.
