    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    This is a common core class that is usually a prerequisite for any and every degree out there. It is mostly essay based. We didn't have any outside assignments that weren't essays other than research for essays. We had small assignments within the class period, but overall a very essay-based class. The only time we ever used our books was if we needed to know how to write a certain type of essay that we were working on that week. We did about 8-10 essays over the semester and almost all of them we had workshop days to work in class and to get peer opinions as well as the professor's opinion. This class was extremely easy and we mostly got to write about what interested us.

    Course highlights:

    We learned to write a various amounts of different types of essays, such as: persuasive, informational, encyclopedic, narrative, photoessay, as well as others. We watched videos on experiments and shared the ethos- ethics, logos- logics, and pathos- emotions with each one. We wrote and informational and encyclopedic essay on a story of a boy who was shot and killed by three teenagers that were "bored".

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    Take your time writing your essays and put in as much information and thoughts you have into the rough draft. This will help the professor and your peers give more feed back to help with your final draft. Completely consider and make the changes that your professor and peers suggest to help receive a better grade on each essay. It will also help with writing further essays within your life and career.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this professer in this prerequisite course because he makes you feel like what you're learning is relevant. He doesn't let technology and phones distract you during class and he likes to write everything on the white border so everyone can catch up. Brent allows you to revise the papers you turned in for a better grade, which makes it easier to get a better grade in the class.

    Course highlights:

    The hifhlights are learning about rhetoric and how to write a decent paper. With the ability to revise the papers, you are learning from your mistakes and being allowed to fix them.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Just show up and turn in something. If the paper is almost done but you don't know how to finish it, just turn it in on time and when you get the paper back to revise, ask his help on how he hunks you should end it.
