    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this class (usually however it is required). There's a lot of readings and writing, so be mindful of that.

    Course highlights:

    I became a much stronger writer after taking this course. My professor was great and helped to improve my writing style a lot over the semester.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    It is not a huge time commitment, but there are a lot of papers that take a while to write.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I felt like it really helped to strengthen my writing comprehension work is due. This helped to influence taking my SAT and be able to write more about each topic I had to write about coherently.

    Course highlights:

    I got to explore a variety of topics to conduct my research for my final writing piece such as animal testing, Booker T. Washington, W.E.B. DuBois, and read "A Long Way Gone" by Ishmael Beah which was about child soldiers. These really interested me and helped me to explore things I had not thought to study before.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    I would encourage them to make sure they stick to their deadlines. The professor has high expectations and expects students to put in the same effort outside the classroom as you would inside. It is a great opportunity to learn more of yourself as a writer and figure out what you need to know. It is important to focus on your research and notes for each paper because they really help to guide your writing.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    Professor Graves has a unique way of explaining his lessons and make sure everyone is paying attention. He doesn't believe in final test like assessments which of course who doesn't love. He does however base his grades on a Final paper which is of a reasonable length for the time being.

    Course highlights:

    Professor Graves gave my class an inside look into problems within our communities we might have been oblivious too. He also encouraged us to become young research journalists and always look for the hidden mystery within every problem.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    DO NOT PROCRASTINATE. Its easy to leave it until the last day but this isn't High school. The Professor will notice if you did the final paper the night before the date due. Just find the fun within the class and you will have a smooth ride.
