I’m the kind of person who listens to podcasts about language, like Word Matters from Merriam-Webster, so this class should have been right up my alley. And it was! Except when it wasn’t. Hold on, I’ll explain.
This is why I went back to school. The beginning workshop in ENG-329 was good, and I expected this course to build on it; I wasn’t disappointed.
When I enrolled at SNHU (Online), I transferred courses I’d taken in 1993, 1994, and 2003. It seemed like the right thing to do—a real no-brainer—but was it?
Ever notice that posts written outside of Brightspace look terrible? The font is usually tiny, paragraphs sometimes aren’t spaced correctly, and citations look terrible.
I was tired of my posts looking bad, so I decided to fix the problem.
I looked up common questions people are asking according to Google, and in an effort to separate facts from opinions, I’ll . . . separate facts from opinions. Turns out, it’s not that hard. More people should try it.
Finally. I’d been looking forward to this class for over a year and it did not disappoint. I enrolled at Southern New Hampshire University to become a better writer. To my mind, everything so far either built up to this or was merely a delay. ENG-226 and ENG-340 had some great writing opportunities, but ENG-329 was the first class to focus exclusively on writing and peer workshops.
It’s about what you’d expect from a 300-level course simply titled “Shakespeare.” There’s a lot of reading, a lot of writing, and for a lot of us, a lot of frustration. I think most of what I didn’t like comes down to the pacing of the course and the scope of the project.
