    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    This is a fun and easy course that has one of the most easy, laid back going teachers i have ever had. The course is on your own pace and has no due dates so it makes it super easy.

    Course highlights:

    In the class you have a variety of workshops that allow you to write about different topics and events. It lets you examine previous works and thought processes so that you can better understand where you are now as a writer.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Make sure that you give yourself time to write and to look at your past posts and others in the class, because most often you will be collaborating on ideas or posts with small groups when you meet in class. Also the class was a night class that meet once a week for 3 hours, either eat before or bring snacks!

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    This course is a requirement for the English program. I took it in my first semester with Dr. Conner. The class was very informative and put together nicely. It is a blended class where you need a laptop, so make sure you get one!

    Course highlights:

    The teacher is very hands on with the students, he answers any questions you have, and will stay or meet you before a class to help answer any of your concerns.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    I would make sure that the teacher you take for this course is a good teacher.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Intro to the English Major is, of course, required for English majors at USFSP, so there isn't really any avoiding it. I thought, at first, that I would be miserable in this class for the entire semester, but I was wrong. Dr. McCracken is extremely understanding and encouraging. She is busy doing good things in her profession and in the world, which sometimes takes away from her levelheadedness in class and concerning assignments. Overall, though, if her students work with her, they realize that she knows what she's doing. As a side-note, the portfolio seems intimidating, but Dr. McCracken is willing to help with all assignments, and students even read a book on how to set up portfolios so that their Google sites are up and running by the end of the semester.

    Course highlights:

    Although many of the theories to which I was exposed in this course were questionable, it was nice to learn so much about authors and texts totally new to me. Through the student-led presentations, I also learned about what I can do with my English degree and more about the history of literary and rhetoric studies. Dr. McCracken boosted my confidence when I gave presentations and worked with her one-on-one. She's kind and understanding. This class ended up providing me with a lot more than I had initially thought!

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Look at the peer reviews because they're extremely helpful, especially when you're creating a new draft and don't know what to add or fix. I would also advise any potential students to ask Dr. McCracken questions because, most of the time, everyone else in the class is confused, too, as the directions are not usually clear.
