    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    Dr. Meadows is such a passionate professor and it really comes through when she is giving a lecture. She truly cares about her students and she does everything in her power to make sure they succeed. She takes the extra time to explain a difficult concept to the class and gives her full attention when it comes to a one-on-one conversation.

    Course highlights:

    While this class was really fun it was also challenging, especially taking it as a freshman. You will learn a whole new style of writing, something that sometimes does not match up to what you learned in high school. We learned how to use the AP Stylebook and edited our stories as well as actual press conferences from the White House. We had to conduct our own interviews and write news-worthy stories. We learned the importance of nonbias sourcing and how to cut through unimportant details to find out what something is all about.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    You definitely have to be willing to put in 110%. The AP Stylebook will become your best friend and worst enemy at the same time. While this course is tons of fun, it will be challenging but don't get discouraged! It will all work out in the end.
