It is the best writing class I have ever been part of!
I really enjoyed working on my memoir and I think I have grown a lot in my writing abilities.
I love participating in this class and hearing from the teacher and peers. I love the discussion boards because it really lets us connect with the other students.
I love everything about how this class is put together and run and I am taking so much away from it and it's still the beginning of the year, I want to come back for Semester 2 because I'm enjoying it so much.
The feedback given to improve the student’s writing was very helpful.
