    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    It challenged me in ways I never thought possible. I've read all sorts of texts I never would have read before and each has made me view the world in a completely different light.

    Course highlights:

    I gained valuable close reading skills. I learned how to annotate texts and poems and how to connect lectures to a larger meaning based on the work being learning. I learned valuable essay writing and thesis creating skills. I learned how to actively participate in class discussion and build from others ideas.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    Read each text. Multiple times. Take thorough notes and read closely. Think outside the box. See a writing tutor. Write multiple drafts. Go to your professor for help. Trust me, you need it, don't convince yourself otherwise.
