    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    The reason I would recommend it is because it was a requirement at my school. I did, however, really like the three novels we had to read and the tests and group discussions helped me gain better skills in English.

    Course highlights:

    I gained experience and skills of a college level English class that has helped me become a better writer for all of my other classes in college. It taught me the right format for papers, grammar mistakes I was making, and other things that I don't make errors on anymore.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Remember to always read the material given to you. Some students like to skim through a book and write things last minute, but it is better to pace yourself while reading and get every detail the book has to offer. Another piece of advice is to make sure and fix mistakes that an instructor puts on assignments. It is for your learning to change your errors and it will help you get a better grade as well.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    Jamie Tipps was a very good teacher who taught me how to write and cite a ten page research paper, learn new words, and become more talkative during group discussions over texts we read outside of class.

    Course highlights:

    I learned how to cite sources in MLA format, how to get sources from somewhere reliable, and how to write good papers.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Make sure you do your homework before every class everyday and study your vocabulary words.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This course that I took through my high school, Kelly Walsh, prepared my tremendously for my next college courses. The content of the course was as challenging, if not, even more challenging than the English 1020 course that I am currently enrolled in.

    Course highlights:

    The main highlight for me in this course was the final assignment, the casebook. It was an in debt research essay; the options for the casebook were limited, however, the teacher refused the accept the following topics; abortion, legalizing marijuana, and gun control. Through this experience I learned how to prepare myself for writing long papers and the course offered tips and tricks on researching on databases.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Be prepared to memorize vocabulary, there were weekly quizzes over twenty vocabulary words. Be certain that you give yourself time to memorize them, look over them all week not just the night before. Taking the course is a good idea for anyone who needs the English 1010 credit.
