    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This class was all about discussing and collaborating with other students, even though it was an online class. There were peer reviews for each essay and discussion activities that made you really think about giving helpful advice to your peers while helping you learn.

    Course highlights:

    I think I have gotten so much better at grammar and punctuation after this course because there were so many activities that involved pointing out grammar and punctuation mistakes.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    You should definitely be on top of deadlines and give yourself plenty of time to do each assignment instead of cramming in the last hour before it's due. It depends on how you write, but it is generally better to have an outline or some sort of word vomit that you can use to format and organize your thoughts for your essays.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    She goes at a slower, yet effective pace compared to other English 101 classes. You learn a lot about english through articles, analyzing, organizing, and writing. She gives 3 essays which is not much at all, compared to other professors. She brought donuts once and spends time reaponding to questions and scheduling short conferences for essay writing. In result, you become a better reader and writer, but you also take a lot from the different topics being deeply thought over.

    Course highlights:

    I really benifited from freewriting because I would always get stuck on finding the right words to put onto a page. I really was not into reading or writing prior to this class, but her assignments actually improved my skills in those areas. I learned a lot from analyzing and hearing other students' opinions on images and situations. I learned that it's difficult to balance ethics with business, and that if (what seems like) one person in a group has an opposing thought, that they should share their idea because you learn so much more that way.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    Make sure to check for assignments DAILY. As long as you do them, you will get an A. But actually do them and give quality responses.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    English 101 can be challenging for many students, however, Professor Berkenfield makes it easier for students to understand the course material by providing them with many office hours to go over projects, essays, reading comprehensions, etc. She is an incredibly helpful professor and will do anything to bring you to success!

    Course highlights:

    Although I struggled in the beginning because this was my first ever college course, Professor Berkenfield really helped me understand what my weak points were in writing and how I could improve them. Throughout the quarter, each essay I wrote got better and better. It was all thanks to Professor Berkenfield, as well as my decision to face the challenge and better myself as a writer.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    I believe that the only advice I could give is to always do the assigned readings, always go to office hours for help, and always participate in the group projects she assigns. These altogether will really boost up your grade along with the 3 major essays.
