    | Probably wouldn’t recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Mrs. Ramirez holds herself above many of the students. It seems as if she enjoys the fact that she is more knowledgeable in the subject then anyone else in the room. Although she does have an obvious right to have a higher understanding of the subject, she is not very humble about it. She often brags and expects her students to be at her level although it is a first year class and none have gotten a degree in English.

    Course highlights:

    The entire course was mainly based off of analysis and the types of analysis. I learned that there are "lenses" which can be used to look at text or piece and pull specific details based off of the lens being utilized.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Attendance in the class matters. If you miss class often enough it Will drop your well deserved A to a B simply based on the fact that you missed class a couple of times.

    There is a lot of writing in this class but it is very manageable if you spread it out.
