    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    At first this class scared me. I'm shy, and quiet, I don't enjoy speaking up at all and suffer from severe social anxiety. The hyperventilating going grocery shopping kind. I'll be honest, Mr. Cox scared the ever loving mess out of me the first day. He threw us into n on the fly speech everyone had to do about how the class was scary! He was very intimidating with it. But then over the course of the weeks in the class we all learned the material, a lot about each other, and we all worked together as a team. We have a theory that we were all bonded by the sheer terror we had of the class. I learned a lot of tricks for dealing with fear, that I can actually stand up and speak in front of groups and how to prepare to do so in an effective fashion. This is probably going to be my favorite class of all of my future college career.

    Course highlights:

    The way my teacher worked in stuff early in the class that became apparent and useful later. I'm not talking about hints about next chapters or stuff that'd be on the exam. I'm talking about telling an amazing story about a pink flamingo lawn ornament that was stolen by a person in one of his prior classes, years ago. Later, orchestrating an exam around this story, buying pizzas for us during the exam and inviting previous classmates to rabble rouse and reminisce about this flamingo. My roommate came to pick me up early, was invited in, after being warned that we were having an exam, and spent half an hour being incredibly confused while eating pizza with us.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Pray you get a teacher like Mr. Cox. Relax, slow your breathing down, and get ready to express yourself like you probably couldn't do in any other class. It'll get easier I promise. If I can do it and not fear vomit all over the room, you sure can without probably fainting.
