    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I recommend this class because it is a requirement for most colleges so if it possible I would take it for dual credit, as I did.

    Course highlights:

    This is a very good class to proper learn to write different types of papers and essays.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Look at the syllabus for the class and try to get a head start on the papers you have to write.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    It provides a chance to take a college English before you leave high school, and if taken in your junior year, you do not have to take English 3 or 4 on top of getting out of English in college.

    Course highlights:

    The main highlight of this course was the research paper and presentation at the end of the year. I learned how to effectively word and format a multi-page research paper and powerpoint presentation as well as present it to the class.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    My only piece of advice would be not to stress about finding subjects to write essays about. There are always plenty of topics to write about and a lot of research materials to choose from as sources.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Mr. Jeremy Gibbs is a dual-credit teacher at Lake High School who assists East Central Community College by teaching English Composition I to high school juniors or seniors. He is very helpful and resourceful by allowing students to reach out to him when they struggled. Though the work was indeed college level, overall, it was thorough and effective in helping students with increasing their writing skills. If an individual struggles with writing, this course will be quite helpful in advancing those particular skills, though it will be quite challenging.

    Course highlights:

    I learned how to write different types of essays, how to cite sources, and how to analyze passages by responding to their effectiveness or ineffectiveness.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Study the handouts that he gives you for the certain types of essays. Always turn in work on time. Do not procrastinate.
