    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Professor Gonzales analyzes every perspective of the article we read. She goes over it and breaks it down to where we understand. She will have you more interested in the articles everytime you read.

    Course highlights:

    I have learned to write a lot better. When it comes to writing essays she is very strict with the work cited page as well as using proper grammar. She is also a very helpful professor and takes her time to explain things to you.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    It is worth it. You go into the class a bit nervous but will come out feeling confident due to the fact that everything was analyzed by either yourself, classmates, or herself.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This course is less focused on essays and the importance of citing sources and is more involved in poetry and literature. The professor showed students very interesting stories that really make you think about the text versus the ambiguous side of the story. The professor was really fun and helped students as much as they could, while also being firm with her students about important due dates and the responsibility of the students.

    Course highlights:

    A bit of history of literature, but more importantly how ambiguous stories and poems can be. In the text in front of a reader, a story can have one meaning. Although when you thoroughly analyze the word choice and symbols in the work, a whole new world of meaning is revealed.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    Always have the textbook with you! I frequently left mine at home because I did not believe it would be in use as much as it was. Having the textbook with you is very convenient especially on new assignments about an old story or poem that had been analyzed in class weeks before.
