I already have a BA and want to take writing classes. I'm going to take one through a university's extended education program. I was thinking of taking one at a city college also since it's cheap. Problem is many years ago I enrolled in a city college writing course and the class consisted of the instructor saying "write." Yea it was that bad. No discussion, assignments, just give her anything you write and she would write critique statements at the end. Of course I dropped the class. Was this unique or should I expect another teacher that is just putting in time to get paid? I don't want to repeat the experience.
