    It was a class all about the writing processes. I am already very familiar with the different types of writing, grammar, etc. so this was just a review of things for me. I wish I could choose the topics written about on my own, rather than have 2 choices I had to choose from. It also takes a long time to have each writing graded. You have to turn in a rough draft and a final, so it took longer than I wanted to to be finished with the course because I had to wait for the graders so often.

    English Composition 1 is not easy. However, if you have a good grammar/composition background, you can do fairly well in this course. Check all your compositions before submitting them, and carefully go over the feedback on the draft papers. The instructors are patient and cooperative, so don't hesitate if you feel confused about any of the assignments!

    It was really difficult with the writing assignments in this course because there were many different people who graded. This caused an inconsistence with recieving helpful information and constructive feedback. I don't feel like I learned anything in this course, but it fulfilled my English generals requirement so at least I'm done with that. I like the format of Straighterline overall and the course materials and assignments were good, just would highly recommend taking it with a professor so that you can receive more help and feedback.

    English is a very hard subject for me but I realized with Straighterline, I learned more about writing taking this course than I ever did in high shcool. I really enjoyed having my essays revised for me with an explanation rather in high school, I would simply receive a letter grade. I have never enjoyed writing until this course, and I deffinatly never use to enjoy a research paper. Being able to write my research paper on a subject I wanted to learn more about was the best part of this class.

When I recieved my draft papers back from her she was always SO helpful. She tried to focus on my strengths but also let me be aware of my weaknesses. She never made me feel intimidated or as if I was not doing things right. Some of them seem more focused on pointing out wrong things instead of acknowledging strengths.

    I liked the material used such as purdue, and the lesson presentations. And there was one grader that was particularly helpful.Her name is Sarah Tidwell. When I recieved my draft papers back from her she was always SO helpful. She tried to focus on my strengths but also let me be aware of my weaknesses. She never made me feel intimidated or as if I was not doing things right. Some of them seem more focused on pointing out wrong things instead of acknowledging strengths.

    The on-line education was very easy to go through and understand.

    Even though I did not take advantage of it, it was nice to know I could get tutor help if needed.

    The overall course was great. This was one of my weakest subjects and it helped me overcome that.

    The writing assignments were not boring. They really helped me develope as a writer. The presentations at the beginning of each topic also helped to explain what key elements I needed to know in order to perform well on both the quizzes and writing assignments.
