    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This was one of the best English classes I have ever taken. Ms. Nelson was very kind, funny, and encouraging. She did an excellent job making the material very interesting and exciting to learn about. She also did a great job explaining the requirements for each assignment, making sure everyone was able to do there best.

    Course highlights:

    In this class one of my biggest takeaways was essay writing. In this class we wrote 2-3 big essays that accounted for a huge amount of our grade. The preparation and advice that was provided to us really gave me a huge amount of confidence in my abilities as a writer. I am very proud of what I learned and it has really helped me out in future classes.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Well you have to take it so just enjoy it. It is a really fun and interesting course. If you put the time and effort into it you will succeed.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    American literature is primarily all poetry with 2 novels. It is interesting learning how poetry changes throughout eras and historical advances.

    Course highlights:

    I gained the knowledge about learning numerous poets. The highlight of the course was Ms. Nelson. She is a teacher who is full of passion for what she teaches and urges her students to explore the world of poetry.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Thoroughly understand the curriculum and poetry for the tests. The written portion of the exams can make or break your grade. Prepare well for each option given for the essay.
