Not too easy. Not too difficult.
She is actually a high school English teacher who was hired to teach a college level class for juniors and seniors in high school through EKU. She is an amazing instructor and will help a student with their writing in any way that she can. If she can't, then she will find a way to help. She gave me a fun learning experience about writing. Her essential motto was, "A better reader makes a better writer," which, in that specific classes case, was true. She truly will make a student a better reader and a better, more advanced writer.
The highlights of the course was that it helped readers take a "terrible" piece of writing and turn it into a great piece of writing. It also took any and every kind of passage and turned it into an in-depth, more sophisticated passage. I learned mostly how to read more in depth and take a passage, add rhetorical devices to it, and make the writing better than before. I also learned to take my own writing, break it down, and make it better, more advanced, and more sophisticated.

Advice for students:
I advise anyone who decides to take the course to begin by taking previous writing of their own, read it, find its flaws, and make it better. Then I tell them to pay attention to the advice the instructor had to offer about their individual writing. Also, it is a good idea to learn to be a good note taker.
