    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    I thought professor Manner's simple way of teaching was effective. She basically did the hard part for students, the outline for essays, and you basically just filled in the blanks. It doesn't hurt either when your professor is ACTUALLY funny. She always gave useful feedback on essays.

    Course highlights:

    How to properly write MLA style essays. Emphasis on outlines to start writing a draft. Critical thinking.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Be in class everyday, although attendance isn't a determining factor in her class. Do all your work. She gives you enough time, even in class.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    In this class I learned how to think critically and look past the content of information. I learned how to further question the credibility of a writer and find credible information. I was also able to differentiate biased and unreliable sources from credible sources. I also became an expert on the topics we researched and I am currently able to find out more information and provide said information about specific topics.

    Course highlights:

    Talking to other students really helps. Not only that, but in order to be successful in general, networking has to be a staple in possessed skills. Some writers may be bias while others may use information which is not as reliable. Credibility would be like comparing a PhD. student's experience compared to an uncle's.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Show up to as many classes necessary. Communicate with the teacher. Read concepts in the West Guide to Writing if there is any struggle, it really helps. Find friends who may help with understanding concepts. Visit the writing lab for more help.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    Students will develop reading, writing, and critical thinking skills through close reading and analysis of a variety of texts. This course is intended to help students develop logical, argumentative and analytical thinking through the examination of written and other types of cultural texts.

    Course highlights:

    Our meetings involved lectures, presentations, and discussions in large and small groups, contributed to the best learning experience. We discussed current events like Black Lives Matter, Police practices, and racial issues in America.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    Using time wisely. Course includes many readings, quiz questions, and writing assignments. Falling behind is not good since catching up is not advised.
