    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    English 111 gives you the most basic overview of what makes a good essay and how to be convincing in the rhetoric you can use. It also allows you to learn how to use rhetoric more visually in some of the later projects and lectures, which is unique to any other English class I've taken. The class also relied heavily on student-to-student feedback on writing, which can be very helpful, but it can have the shortcomings of your fellow students giving you vague, non-advice instead of something more detailed or thoughtful. However, my largest issue with the class was that it was relatively boring for me. While, I do enjoy writing, I felt much of the class repetitive of English classes from my high school without adding much new insight.

    Course highlights:

    We reviewed the types of rhetoric and learned to analyze them in visual media, use them in arguments, and how to use rhetoric in visual formats. For each big point, we were expected to write a paper or do a project, such as a paper analyzing the rhetoric in a movie scene or a paper arguing for or against a divisive hot button issue in today's society. You also learn how to helpfully critique others and is generally just a really good class to ease you into the way college classes opperate.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Do your reading. Read the sections you are assigned and take notes on the student examples they give you. Those provide some of the most helpful insight you can get, given they allow you to look at the capabilities of a fellow peer and see examples of how a non-professional writer uses rhetoric in their writing. I also suggest that you start projects ahead of time. Start drafting early, it helps the writing go faster when you already have the bones to build on. Give lots of helpful comments to your fellow peers! It's very helpful for them and it can help you all mutually grow from this class.

    Have a pen, pencil and notebook handy. If you love to read, then this is the course for you. Just be ready to study, but don't worry. You already know everything your being taught, its just a refresher.
