    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Brooke is a great professor that seems really tough at the beginning of class, but as you grow and learn throughout the duration of the class you come to realize that all along it was in order to help you grow. She's a great teacher, and becomes like a close friend by the end of the class.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights were definitely when we would have in-class debates about different pieces that we had read. As groups we would defend or rebuff different arguments and aspects, and it taught me how to better structure an argument, and what made up a good or bad argument.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Be ready to work hard, it won't be easy at first, but if you listen and pay attention, it all becomes clear. Criticism is hard to take, but 100% necessary if you want to succeed in this class. Take the things that your peers and the professor tells you, and you will be able to improve.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    The class is very discussion-based (participation is 20% of your grade), and you learn a lot by bouncing ideas off of your classmates. The final is a portfolio where you can redo the four essays for a higher grade.

    Course highlights:

    Highlights include being exposed to all types of writing and learning how to analyze anything from plays to poetry. The professor gives great feedback on your essays so that you have a chance at improving, and I became better at writing analyses.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Attendance is extremely important, but there are assignments you can do to make up missed classes.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend it because it teaches you to think a bit deeper when it comes to interpretations. When I mean that, I mean that an interpretation is more than just one or two examples of your claim, but of a realistic claim, multiple examples of evidence, and why that evidence is important towards your claim and the story.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights were the professor. Dr. Wonders is a wonderful teacher who is hilarious, thoughtful, but also pushes you towards a higher standard of writing.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Do not underestimate the class. This is not a class that you can just not come to, skim the reading, or get past by not reading at all. You need to be engaged in order for you to be able to succeed.
