    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This is an amazing alternative to taking the standard English 101 class! Trista does a great job of teaching and keeping students engaged, and the open discussion and active participation that the class is built on is perfect for anyone who learns better interacting rather than simply listening or watching.

    Course highlights:

    I was able to be more comfortable with open discussions, and I learned quite a bit about different literary tidbits I didn't even know existed!

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Taking this course means actively participating, so be ready to talk!

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    English Composition I is a course that every student has to take, because it is a general education course. At the same time many students dread this class. I believe Jacqueline Tiermini was a great teacher. She gave clear instructions about what had to be done and by when it had to be completed. I know that I developed to become a better writer through this course. Even though it seemed intimidating at first, Jacqueline Tiermini walked through each step in the writing process to help her students complete better end projects.

    Course highlights:

    Throughout this course I learned that it is okay to not know about a subject to write about it. I discovered how to brainstorm ideas when I do not know about what to write. I was able to improve my use of punctuation and conventions. Finally, I found out the importance of considering the writing situation which includes context, genre, purpose, and audience.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Eng Composition I is a course that is worth spending time on in order to not have to take it again. Do not put things off until the last minute and try to do at least a little work on big assignments each day. This will significantly reduce your stress in the long run.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    Professor Tietjen is very strict when it comes to notes and when it comes to his class in general. He doesn't allow students to miss more than 3 classes and he isn't the easiest grader. I took AP English- Intro to Composition, in 11th grade, so some of the information I learned was the same. However, he made it more challenging and he really gave you the feel of a college course. I go to a community college, so there are many "slacker" students, and the professors know that, so they go easier on their students. I admired Professor Tietjen so much because he DIDN'T let his students slack. He gave you an idea of what a 4-year college is like and I loved that.

    Course highlights:

    I learned how to think outside of the box. He would make us write about specific pieces we had to read and specific videos. The writing wasn't opinionated or controversial. The course just taught you how to write at a college level, which I really enjoyed. A lot of students struggled with it, but you left the class learning something new.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Any student who decides to take this course with this professor should know that being on top of the reading and the notes is very important and essential in order to pass the class. He isn't an "Easy A" kind of teacher; he actually expects you to do your work and be enthused with what you're doing. IN order to get a full effect of college, I think this class is a really great one to take, especially in community college.
