I took this class mostly because it was being taught by the same professor that I had in College Writing. This professor may be the one that had the most influence on my decision to become an English major and to pursue my dreams of being an editor and eventually an author. Just like in College Writing the professor introduced me to new and exciting forms of persuasive writing. I also enjoyed the fact that this class was all about rhetorical and persuasive writing. This meant that while I did still need to use facts and sources, the bulk of the papers would be all about my thoughts and opinions. This let me be free to a certain extent in my writing for this class. I also found this class to be helpful to my career goals, because it had a big focus on cover letters, which are what will set a resume apart in a large stack.
