    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Taking this course with a great teacher (Professor Hansen in my case), definitely makes English an amazing subject to get more into. Being an anti-reader myself, I've grown to enjoying reading. It also helps you look at writing in a different perspective. Instead of essays equals death, it equaled a form of conversation. Conversations with both living and the dead.

    Course highlights:

    I gain my own opinions on small and simple issues/discussions or deep and meaningful ones. Not just having one [because everyone has an opinion], but gaining a strong and confident opinion. I've also gained a better knowledge on how others view the world in comparison to my own.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    A huge suggestion for those who are considering or going into this course is to try and keep an open mind through it all. It will help you to develop great ideas and opinions as well as create clear understanding in both reading and writing.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    In order to graduate or transfer you have to take English 1A, but this professor was not my favorite. I found English 1B 10x easier than 1A with her. She will give grades with awesome feedback and a low grade, and ones with more tough feedback with a higher grade.

    Course highlights:

    I learned a lot about history in the media, satire, and I learned how to build a website. That was the final project for the class.

    Hours per week:

    12+ hours

    Advice for students:

    If you are going to take this online course I would be prepared to spend almost everyday doing work for the class and it says it should take 15 hours a week but I found it took more.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    This professor is very thorough, and is willing to help when the assistance is needed. There are weekly discussion forums and assignments, but if you did the assigned readings prior to the due dates, the assignments should be relatively straight-forward. I highly recommend this class, even if it is the online course (I took the online course).

    Course highlights:

    We read "I am Malala" in class, and had several assignments relating to the reading. I learned a lot about the oppression that women in the Middle East face, and how people like Malala are fighting for a woman's right to an education.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Do the assigned readings, ask the professor for help when the help is needed. Be prepared to write a long term-paper at the end of the course.
