    | Would recommend.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    It is a good start to college English. You learn the basics of literature in different ways and even go over some stuff you haven't learned in previous years of English.

    Course highlights:

    I liked going over film literature and how to interpret it into an essay. Taking an emotion of a movie and putting it on paper is a satisfying thing to learn.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Take lots of notes! Don't think you can get away with a two-sentence summary and pass the class. There is a lot to take in and if you do not pay attention, you will not know what is going on.

    | Would highly recommend.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course because it is very helpful for reading and writing skills. In this course you would learn different rhetorical tools to use in an essay. It was very helpful for me to understand the effectiveness of the writer's purpose, tone, audience among others. Therefore, I think that this course is very beneficial for us.

    Course highlights:

    English 1301 is a dual credit course where you can earn credits for college. I learned different types of essays and different rhetorical tools that I can use. The types of essays that I learned were narration, description, exemplification, compare and contrast, cause and effect, and division and classification. I also learned that a closed form thesis is a thesis that contains the "so what factor" which is the type of thesis that has the idea of "because".

    Hours per week:

    12+ hours

    Advice for students:

    I would advice them to always do the reading because it is really important to go on task with the class in order to understand every chapter and be able to determine the differences between each type of essay.
