    | Would highly recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Aside from the fact that the class is a prerequisite for freshmen, I'm more recommending the professor rather than the course itself.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights of the class would probably be the class writing prompts that coaxed us into getting our ideas out on the page, and I learned about rhetorical analysis, working with a sited sources page, and

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    For this course as well as any other, I would highly recommend not procrastinating.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I highly recommend this course! It's required for most college degrees, and it's not even a hard class. The teacher is super sweet, and grades very fairly, while also teaching important things for everyday life.

    Course highlights:

    Three main highlights I can think of from this course would be, the teacher, the students, and the grading. Nobody likes homework. I really think that the teacher took note of that and made sure that each homework assignment was enjoyable and easy to follow. She helped us to build friendships between other students and always graded everything as fair as possible. I learned a lot about sentence structures, and MLA/APA formatting when writing papers as well as emails and letters, which is definitely a requirement for everyday life.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    The best advice I could give to any student would be to never give up. Even when something seems unreasonably hard, it's always better to try then to get a 0% on a paper or an assignment. Take as many notes as you can. Sometimes teachers say things that they don't always write on the board or tell you will be on the test, but it's very important information that could help you out! Show up for class. How do you expect to learn and to pass if you don't know what the teacher is even talking about? It's always a good idea to be in class and to be paying attention.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    The professor is very understanding and kind. She is passionate not only about teaching, but what she is teaching [English].

    Course highlights:

    There were at least 7 papers that we were required to write over the course of one semester. And at the end, we were instructed to create a binder that contained all of those papers. It was my favorite assignment because not only was I able to appreciate my compositions, but as well the creative binder that I made for them.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Be prepared to write and read a lot. Polish your grammar and sentence structure.
