ミシガン大学(University of Michigan) による Writing and Editing: Structure and Organization の受講者のレビューおよびフィードバック



This second course in the Good with Words: Writing and Editing series will help you become an effective architect of information, both with your sentences and with your paragraphs. You’ll learn that the traditional advice to “Show, don’t tell” is incomplete and that skilled writers actually switch back and forth between showing and telling. You’ll also learn more about the menu of time management techniques introduced in the first course of the series, including “deep work,” “studio time,” and “the Animal Farm Principle.” And as with the other three courses in this series, you will get access to a wide range of books and other resources you can use even after you finish the course. These include: —the readings and exercises provided to the students who have taken the in-person version of this course at the University of Michigan and the University of Chicago —two digital libraries of excellent writing from a diverse collection of journalists, scientists, novelists, poets, historians, and entrepreneurs —a monthly “Good Sentences” email...



Writing and Editing: Structure and Organization: 1 - 10 / 10 レビュー

I enjoyed the videos and the content within them, but I felt they were often too short and needlessly broken into shorter videos. I understand that this was probably done to break things into more digestible content, but it became rather annoying having to sit through several < 1 minute videos in a row.

I felt a bit overwhelmed with all the reading, not because of the content, but rather the number of options offered.

I would have liked to have seen more practice offered. The quizzes weren’t terribly helpful because they seemed to test your ability to recall information such as author names; this wasn’t particularly helpful for reinforcing the ideas in the videos and reading and provided a source of frustration, rather than information.

There’s even errors in some of these quizzes (Battle and the Ballot); not a good look on a writing course.

expected something more than was given. moreover, nevertheless it is said you can do courses in any order there are too much references to the 1st course.

This course taught by Professor Barry gave me many new ideas and perspectives on how to write better-structured writing. He communicated this information in an engaging and entertaining way. Thank you for creating this course!

This course gives new information, and I like it. The short videos help me to be attentive throughout the lectures.

The quizzes could be improved to test the concepts rather than recollecting the names of books and authors.

More direct ten the course 1 of this specialization, lots to read from and get ideas and practice, but little teaching.
