Not too easy. Not too difficult.
Professor Scurlock is an excellent professor and I'd recommend this course for any major. Not only is the class very helpful in learning how to write, Professor Scurlock is very reasonable when it comes to the assignments.
In ENG 111, you spend a vast majority of your time focused on how to write essays and do it well. You write four major essays during the semester and one I-search paper. With each essay, you will learn more advanced ways to apply grammar and you will be expected to use those new methods in the essay while still applying those you learned prior. I learned a tremendous amount in this class, and I barely realized it until recently. The applications of grammar are so overlooked that you will make a habit out of good grammar and not realize it.
