First off, let me say that the main reason I took this class was to get my writing requirement out of the way. However, after being in it for the semester, I would gladly take it just to enjoy the class. Cate is awesome, her approach to the class is very organized and she has awesome taste in music. The class is not difficult and some would say easier than other WR classes because you read plays instead of entire books!
To be successful in this class, do your readings, write your papers early, go to class, and this one is important, do NOT take cold medicine that might be drowsy before writing your papers. Seriously, you’ll have no idea what you wrote the next day. This class will help you really take your writing to the collegiate level by teaching you to take it a step further than previous classes have, it will teach you to ask, so what?
Really though, I enjoyed this class a lot more than I expected to and Cate is an awesome teacher, plus if you turn in your long papers, you get baked goods! Win!
