    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This class, is a well structured college English course. Tray Harrison is a down to earth woman and a very understanding professor. Regardless of all the issues taking place in my personal life, she allowed me to go at a pace that was well enough for me to be be an active member. Regardless of whether or not you know your classmates, the class setting is very comfortable and the curriculum itself is highly engaging.

    Course highlights:

    This specific class, was on the Myths of Suburbia, and focused on the reasons people move to the suburbs and the affect of striving for the American Dream. It breaks the stereotypes of what it means to be in that idealistic lifestyle. I learned that not everything is as perfect as its been portrayed to be throughout history. It brings into account, the more mental and personal aspects of an individual placed in this life. For example, a woman during the time of the 18th century was still subjected to gender roles and as such, had more of a mental burden placed upon them.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    The main thing about this course is the fact that its based upon the readings that are assigned. The literature is interesting so there is no problem applying time outside of class for homework and such. However, it it is important to show up to class. The insight and discussions that are had between everyone in the classroom, is the foundation for a good understanding on the material.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I recommend it because even though its difficult for some of those you lack poorly in it, it is still a challenge meant to be faced. On the contrary the course is actually fun and the teachers are quite kind.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights of this course are its clarity, helpfulness, and it creativity. The teacher is kind and understandable. Although she can be hard on us, its only because she wants us to be better students. And I appreciate it.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    just pay attention and keep a clear observant mind in class and while listening to the teacher. Practice on your writing and read books of your interests to challenge yourself.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    This course is very difficult and maybe its because its a new curriculum but it is very time consuming outside of class.

    Course highlights:

    We learned about what They say,other people, vs what I say, yourself.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    ITs very reading and writing intensive and while English 101 is a required course do your research on the teachers.
