Easy courses for R&C requirement?

jykim96jykim96 Registered User Posts: 1 New Member
So....currently I'm taking English R1A and to be honest, I'm struggling. I found out way later that English is one of the hard R&C courses......unfortunately. First off, is it possible to switch from English R1A to another course for part B like Rhetoric R1B?
If so, which are some easy part B R&C courses? Please help my life :(

    If the departments post the instructors' blurbs and reading lists, choose the course whose reading list looks the most interesting to you. A course will be easier and you will do better if the subject matter interests you.

    If instructors' blurbs and reading lists for specific sections are not available, consider which general humanities or social studies topics out of the above are of the most interest to you to read and write about.

    No, you are going about this completely wrong! If I told you Spanish was the easiest R1B requirement but you didn't like Spanish, you'd hate it and find it hard and horrible. Take which ever topic interests you the most. They are all the same workload, what makes it easy is your personal motivation to do well because you're passionate.
