    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course because Mrs. Alexander is a great teacher! The way she teaches her class gets all the students involved and helps the grow to know each other, instead of just learning from a book. She mainly focuses on the Hero's Journey. Life changing course!

    Course highlights:

    The highlights from this course were meeting new people, learning how to work with people, and to understand that everyone is going through something in their life good or bad. I learned about the Hero's Journey, and how every story, and everyone's life goes through that journey multiple times throughout the course in their life.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Pay attention and take notes. You never know what you'll be tested on so it's always good to do that. Take the opportunity and make some new friends. Look up the professor you are considering taking the course with to make sure it's a good match with you.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This class was absolutely fascinating. If you are into art, music, film, etc., then this is the perfect class for you. It offers beautiful content about human contribution to the world through self expression.

    Course highlights:

    The biggest highlight was the professor, Mr. Ramirez. You could feel the passion that he had for teaching, and he turned into my absolute favorite professor. I learned much about a subject I have always found interested, and I will keep these lessons with me forever!

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Make sure you pay attention! The class is not hard, but it definitely isn't a blow-off class where you can expect to easily make an A. The good thing is that you enjoy the assignments, so you can easily get that A just by meeting the expectations!

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This course was something that I have never done before. This subject had expanded my mind on art and forms of art. By saying Mrs. Lang is a very professional and sophisticated professor would be an understatement. She was outstanding and made you learn the assignments, but it in relaxed manner. She would let you go at your own pace, but expected only the best from you.

    Course highlights:

    I learned that there are many sculptures that provide an insight to many different religions and cultures. For human issues, the picture “Execution in Saigon” by Eddie Adams showed a general that killed a captive. Also “May 3, 1808” by Francisco Goya shows the history that happened and “Vulture and Child in Sudan” by Kevin Carter reveals many tragedies that second and third world countries go through on a daily basis. These paintings/sculptors/pictures have been very captivating and without them society may not be as diverse as it is today. Some provide works of art for pleasure, others do it to open societies mind towards certain things, or perhaps show viewers their emotions or they express how they feel through art. For example, Judy Chicago created “The Dinner Party” to represent all of the most important women throughout history. She created it in the 70s to represent feminism. That was the era of the most feministic activity. Also another example on why people create art is to show different cultures. Maternity Group Figure is a sculpture of a woman with children surrounding her. This sculpture was made in Nigeria and is a great representation of maternity groups because they were so common among African women. This is only a few of the many things I have learned in this class.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Do you work throughout the week. DO NOT wait till the last day to complete assignments.
