"Before the semester started I could barely analyze a poem. Now I feel like I can analyze just about anything."
"So many of these great writers that I’ve never heard of have seemed to step out into the light and shake my hand. "
"I admired how different this class was compared to some other writing classes I’ve taken. The encouraged use of technology in this class really allowed the students to connect more with the class itself because that’s more of what we know. We have a greater grasp on technology and would rather create and blog posting than write out an essay. This class has a series of different genres from short stories to poems, that would somehow relate back to technology; whether it was a YouTube video of a famous person reading the piece that was assigned for homework or listening to a podcast . . . about a writer. Listening to these made it more interesting than having to read page after page of one topic."
"This course has opened up my world to more than just writing papers. Creating a script to analyze a writer allows you to connect more with that writer because it makes you get into the mind of the writer and try to figure out what they are thinking. . . . Professor Golden has created different ways to do research without it being tedious. It was definitely more fun and interesting."
