    | Would highly recommend.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    Sarah Osment is a wonderful teacher who is insightful and understanding. She knew that the materials she chose to teach are vastly different and way more in depth than what is being conventionally taught in high school and were very difficult for people to manage in addition to the rigorous studios and new environment.

    Course highlights:

    Her class was insightful and taught me a lot about writing in the real world (not template-based 5 paragraph essays with 2 quotes and 3 blablabla). In addition to learning how to close read poetry, Sarah broke through the boundaries of what we believe to be "good writing" and inspired me to challenge what is commonly thought of as the norm. We learned to question how our brains and bodies interpret the world around us and how knowledge and experience influence our perception. In addition, her expertise in semiotics was extremely interesting to hear and was an added highlight to the course's lessons.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    It's required! Take the course, and go through with it. Don't kill yourself too much over not understanding what you're doing at the beginning.... it will become easier and you will understand it better the more you practice and have experience with close readings of poetry.
