My overall experience this week was great. I didn't expect class to be so open and the pace is awesome it allows everybody to communicate and learn more. Also I like how we don't have a huge amount of people in class. It allows us to ask questions if we ever need to without the bother of having to disrupt a large amount of students.

The last thing is the restated claim which backs up your claim that was written down first. Another thing I learned about in my first week was how to use the program blackboard it’s really cool it’s easy to use and really helps you if you don't have any writing programs on your computer like Microsoft office. I also learned truly what an argument is intended for. It’s not tended to be based of bad things like getting into a fight. It’s mainly used for people to express their thought to one another about some topic or discussion. Mainly us American’s if we hear I just got into an argument its bad news because in our mind it’s like we were
