    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Prior to this course, I believed I could handle college level writing; however, I quickly learned that was not the case. This course was able to challenge me and my writing and encouraged me to reach deeper than I had ever before. Although I started with a few disappointing grades, they only pushed me further and motivated me to reach for higher goals in my writing. Because of this course, I am more than excited, and feel that I am actually prepared, to start college and I am not worried about the higher level of writing that is expected.

    Course highlights:

    The best thing about this course for me was being able to learn more than other students in my school. I liked knowing that, as a high schooler, I was being taught the same thing college students were learning while my fellow classmates in the other English classes were not getting the same level of education. I learned how to properly write papers for a college level class and how the expectations differ from high school classes. The most valuable thing I learned from this course was what college professors expect and how to properly meet those expectations in my writing.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    A strong work ethic is key when going into this class. While it is not extremely difficult, the work can add up and will be difficult if procrastinated. Also, it is important to not go into this class expecting to breeze through it. As it is a first year English class, most college freshman will be taking it who have never experienced a college class before; do not expect it to be as easy as high school, as it is going to be harder than classes previously taken.
