    This class was tough.

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Always do the reading, and really try to comprehend what you're reading. Note common themes and writing methods amidst the literature.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this class to students who enjoy being a part of open discussions on various pieces of writing. This class is not so much about trying to discover meaning behind stories, but rather focused on answering the "why?" question. This is definitely an interesting course because it engages your mind to notice the details in stories you may have missed at first glance. This course is heavy on reading material, and there are a couple of papers as well. By staying on top of the reading, and participating during the discussions the papers will be easier to write!

    Course highlights:

    I would walk into this class thinking I knew everything about a piece of writing, but only after the discussion would I change my mind completely. That was the biggest highlight of this course, and just being able to have the freedom to speak my mind. I loved having the mentality that I have the ability to challenge the minds of my peers. I've always been told to reread or rewrite, but that was something I learned how to implement with this class because it was a part of our assignments.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    I advise you not to wait last minute for the readings. Every student is guilty of this, and it happens! However, I promise you that you will be missing out in the discussions if you don't read. The discussions are the best part of the class, and they really do help when it comes to writing the papers. I also advise to take notes during the class discussions, because it helps organize your thoughts and ideas.
