    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This was most definitely one of my favorite classes ever. The teacher had such a great sense of humor and teaching style that everyday was a joy to be there. Although my final grade was not what I had hoped for, even if I had aced the class I would've retaken him again and again.

    Course highlights:

    I gained a type of knowledge that was never taught in high school about how to correctly, and professionally, order and style essays. In high school we learned about basic structure, but in Billy's class we learned professional structure. Now I stand out in other English classes as a better written essay.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    Always make sure to ask questions if you have them. Billy was a little confusing at times but he always paraphrased and explained his words more clearly if asked.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Mr. Underwood has a real passion for literature and bringing current global problems into the course. The class really opened my eyes and continues to stick with me in my everyday life.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights of this course included global current events with animals and climate change. We became very knowledgable on certain topics in just a short period of time. Although I already had a passion for The things we were spending our time on, I was always engaged in everything he taught us. You couldn't not be, it opened your eyes.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    Go to class and do your research. It won't be hard to get into the course content because it was all so Interesting.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I do recommend this class because professor Underwood is a friendly, mellow teacher who knows what he's talking about and what he's having the students do. The semester was spent writing one single essays, but it was made compiling mini essays into it. I genuinely felt like it improved my ability to write academic essays, as well as my work ethic. Plus, the work load wasn't too horrible, as I had been exceptionally busy during that semester but still managed to get through with good grades.

    Course highlights:

    Like I said, the semester was spent writing one big essay from smaller essays. We had a big topic to focus on and would have to write essays about the sources we would use, and then essentially put those writings in the paper. It's quite tedious ( it did take the whole semester, after all ) but the focus on the sources and how we would mix it all together was really unique and eye-opening for me. The mini essays had specific criteria, such as summarizing what the source was about, an analysis on it, as well as a thesis.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    It's hard work, but if you remain focused and give the smaller essays genuine effort, your final paper will actually be fairly easy to do. The work load isn't too stressful, but you have to keep at it the whole time as well.
