    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Professor Nichols has a style of teaching that is easy to grasp while also not being too intermediate. He pushes your limits because he understands the potential of his students. He will not settle for less, he will bring the best out in you.

    Course highlights:

    Learning the deeper meaning of seemingly simple poems. You learn critical thinking skills. The final research paper helps to see how current day events are relatable to literature, no matter the age of the piece.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Read ahead and try to find deeper meaning in the words. Pay close attention in class on discussion days because it will hugely benefit later on in the course. Testing and reading directly correlate. On the last research paper, pick a topic that you are passionate about and that will make it easier for you to do well.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    While taking this class, I learned about how things happened, when they happened and to who they happened to. It is all very interesting to me and my fellow classmates. Dr. Winfrey goes over the power point then she tells us about the rumors of how it really happened, she doesn't shield us from the points that make it so real. She wants us to get a side of the truth behind all of the strange deaths from that time, about Henry the eights six wives. She "wows" us with all of the crazy things from the past.

    Course highlights:

    If I had to choose just one highlight from this course it would have to be about the time we learned about the Vikings. I had no idea that Vikings had caused so much trouble for Denmark, Norway, and Sweden. I learned about how mothers would kill their children so that they were not killed by the Vikings when they came to invade. It was all so interesting, how could you kill your own child? Well these mothers had good reasons.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Don't worry about how things are in the notes, things will get explained for you to see how it happened. Dr. Winfrey will not just tell you to do it and walk away she will make sure you understand it enough to ask question or for help when your stuck.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course. She is an outstanding professor. She listens and responses to all the emails you send her. If you have any questions, she will be happy to answer them for you. She is flexible when it comes to late work. She does not grade extremely hard on essays.

    Course highlights:

    All the reading of the stories was great. You learn new meanings of things. You view songs, and poems differently than you would have before. I learned that you can not judge a book my its cover. It may have an ugly face or cover, but the words that are telling the story will hit you hard and teach you things you never thought was possible.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Do not wait til the last minute to do the essays. It does not help you in the end. You turn in rushed work, unfinished works cited, and you change person tense. Another thing, some teachers prefer third person, Mrs. mason requires it. If you change from third to first, that is ten points taken off. MLA is a huge grade factor. You want pass? Make sure your paper is in MLA format.
