    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Professor Dowdy makes learning about English fun. His approach on teaching is very unorthodox, but effective. He interacts with his students each class period, and makes sure to make you think. He explores poetry and other literary works in detail and puts your knowledge of the material to the test. He was such a breath of fresh air in terms of college professors and I am glad that I had him for two of my classes at Catawba Valley Community College.

    Course highlights:

    I gained a very unique point of view on the literary world by taking English classes with Professor Dowdy. He was very blunt and to the point when he taught, which was quite new for me. He was not afraid to call out anyone in class to see if they were able to understand the desired materials. His extensive background in this field, especially poetry, proved to be an important asset that he was sure to utilize to its fullest potential.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Paying attention, participating in class discussions, and simply showing up to class are all key elements of being able to be successful in this class. Professor Dowdy is very down to earth and understanding, so when it comes to working out issues with him, it is no problem at all. He was always very flexible and patient when it came down to students who were having complications outside the classroom. He was much more concerned about whether or not his students were learning, then whether or not they were making the highest grade they could.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend as a basic English class because the teacher and the content being taught is fair to everyone.

    Course highlights:

    Some of the few things I took from this course was how to properly cite within the essay and on the Citation page on an English based paper and how to effectively fill in a paper with content.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Definitely listen to the teacher or he will call you out for your work or lack of.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would take this course because it prepares you for every type of writing you will have to do in your college/professional career. We learned to write memoirs, academic essays, argumentative papers, etc. I already enjoyed writing, but I learned so much from Mr. Collie. He was such an understanding and informative professor.

    Course highlights:

    I learned time management, planning outlines, effective study techniques, and how to speak in front of a class. Everything I learned in this course I will use in my future studies.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Keep track of due dates and outlines. Checking your email regularly for updates will help keep you in the loop of what's happening day-to-day.
