    | Would highly recommend.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend it because the teacher is very helpful, the assignments are fun, and it helps you fulfill a general requirement.

    Course highlights:

    The assignments were easy for me because the reading was on topics that interested me. The reading was relevant to our modern society and I learned a lot about critical thinking.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Do the reading. Do the essays early even if they're just basic outlines so that you can edit them later.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this English course and teacher specifically because he is very funny, understanding, and outright caring. He is super critical of your writing and he sincerely wants your skills to improve if you want them to. Contrarily, I would not recommend this course because he does ramble quite often which takes up class time. There were several occurrences where he would branch off a subject and not even notice he is rambling about something that is completely irrelevant to the class.

    Course highlights:

    One highlight of this course was definitely the In favor or Not in favor essay about Al Gore's documentary The Inconvenient Truth. We watched that over a span of days and we would list topics that were for his argument and against it. The discussions were very insightful, open, respectful, and whole-hearted. I could tell this because everyone had something to say even if it was repetitive. The fact that everyone in my class felt compelled to respond was very comforting and made me enthused to join the conversation. I learned more about Global Warming and different perspectives of it. In the class as a whole though I learned many grammar etiquettes such as "Put the comma after 'but' rather than before" and things such as the hook which is the sentence to catch the audience's attention in te introduction. The correct terminology is what I learned, for the most part, to be frank. My vocabulary expanded as well. Things like hucksterism and amalgamation were pivotal vocabulary words because I could use them in many different conversations on many different topics.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    In order to pass this class, you must participate. raise your hand first to read! Also actively listen in and ask questions because of not only Mr.Magnesi but, I am sure that many teachers love when you are simply active in their class. Never use your phone, he spots you every time and even though he may not kick you out of the class, he will keep a mental note that you rather use your phone than learn from his teachings. Also, I suggest having at least 3 separate highlighters because he loves to print out short stories and he will explicitly tell you what is good to know and the multiple coloring will help you distinguish categories.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would definitely recommend this class to any future student in El Camino College. During my first semester taking this class, I started to become deeply interested in the rigorous yet rooted course. Although the lectures were sometimes long, they were full of elaborate information that helped succeed in the weekly essays we had and made sure we were completely educated on the sources.

    Course highlights:

    The weekly essays were rigorous but allowed everyone to become experienced in college writing and prepared us for professional writing which is a skill we all need. The professor was very distinct in teaching methods but her techniques showed us the importance of time management and organization.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    It was a rigorous College English class that I believe can help anyone out when it comes to writing professionally as well as being able to create profound reading sources without error. If you enjoy English, then this class will suit you and give you a elaborate way of advancing your reading and writing skills.
