This week Tyler and I discussed if this writing course prepared for other WRT courses and improved our writing skills. As discussed, this class I was introduced to a new style of teaching that was very interesting and strayed from other writing courses in the past. Initially I thought the first level of WRT would consist a teacher telling you how to write papers on a college level. Instead a new way of teaching was introduced where the students are directly involved with other grades, such as peer-reviews and discussion groups. I have seen this done in past classes, but this was different, as one and other were contributed their own thoughts in order to achieve a final product. Although this class had many deadlines which personally is tough for me, this class was preparing the student for higher level courses and real-life jobs where deadlines are normal thing. I do wish more was done during class-time with the assignments, but Prof Cream met with student one on one and got to teach and show what he was looking for in each assignment. In the end this class introduced a new way of teaching that overtime improved my writing skills and ability to make deadlines.
