    | Would highly recommend.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    Do yourself a favor and take this course with Professor LaPointe. ENGL 223 is a required class anyways, so make it a little easier on your workload. This course topic focuses on Mind, Memory and Madness. We have be able to watch several movies during class and then analyzed them through discussion afterwards. The novella that was chosen was for the course is highly interesting (and short) and will keep you wanting more. I'm even in the process of considering a tattoo based of the book. The dreaded research paper will put your mind at ease in this class. It is broken up into increments that you will have able time to complete and then given feedback after each step. I highly recommend this course.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights of this course was definitely the required material to read. Usually when you think of college English course, nothing but writing and reading runs through your mind. This holds no truth in ENGL 223 with LaPointe. Homework consists of a handful of one page papers to keep your writing flexible throughout the semester. The movies that we got to view during the course where very intriguing and exciting to analyze with the class. Due to the restricted writing style of the one pagers, I became a much better writer overall. I have learned to use more extravagant word choice and more interesting syntax.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    Buy the books required by LaPointe. They are inexpensive and you will need them for sure when assigned short readings for homework. Attend every class with an open mind and be ready to see things from perspectives you would never expected to about readings and movies.

    | No strong feelings either way.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this class because the professor is outstanding. The class is very engaging.

    Course highlights:

    What I've learned from this course is how to write an effective paper. I wrote my first literary analysis and got an A, but I had to work very hard.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    Go to office hours. If you have any questions she is more than happy to help.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    Every teacher has their own theme for the course. For example, one teacher's theme was on 'Punk Rock', so all the students' papers had to have a topic of Punk Rock and Punk Culture. Another teacher had 'Food' as their theme. We had 'Pirates' as ours, and it was so much fun. We read books and wrote papers on famous historical pirates, but Professor Bunch also tied in modern day pirates as well as media piracy! She was so creative, and I always looked forward to the class.

    Course highlights:

    I learned about tons of historical pirates, from Blackbeard to Sir Francis Drake to Captain Kidd. I also extensively researched movie piracy and it's effects on the industry. We also took a field trip up to Jamestown to learn about the original settlement. One of my best memories from Sophmore year!

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    Take it. It is a ton of fun, and Ms. Bunch is really into the topic. She has very flexible office hours and was always there when I needed help. And also, It's freaking pirates. You couldn't ask for a better theme!
