    | Would recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This course was fun for me since Professor Gonzales was very passionate about the readings and analyzing them. I would love to take other classes if he had any more after 102.

    Course highlights:

    I learned a lot about analyzing literature and a lot more about essay structure. I've always struggled with writing the intro paragraph of an essay, but in this class the structure we were provided helped a lot with coming up with the hook part of the intro. This class taught me how to write better and how to make my essays flow smoother.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Professor Gonzales is a fair teacher when you put effort in. I attended his office hours with a draft of my essay usually the week or a few days before the final essay was due. He gave a lot of input on which parts of the essay could be stronger or how to make the logic flow better. He may seem intimidating during lectures because of his humor, but he isn't like that when reviewing essays and course work. Office hours are important!

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this class because it brought a lot of different topics into picture with opposing views and made the students see all sides of the argument before choosing one.

    Course highlights:

    I learned that you need to know all the information needed before making an informed decision on something.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    It is a lot of essays but was fun and interesting to see what everyone thought about each topic. The students had to read about some hard things and imagine why someone would think for example the death penalty, guns in schools, abortion, and more things were ok or not ok.
