    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    My English course was an online class but it was just as great as a regular English class. The students interacted with each other through blackboard and shared/commented on our opinions from given assignments. It was an interesting and new experience I would highly recommend.

    Course highlights:

    From this course I learned responsibility because I needed to remember to turn in my assignments before the deadlines. It's not as easy as a regular class where the teacher would constantly remind you that your essay is due Thursday, I had to remember myself and take care of my assignments myself. I also learned what we called "common pitfalls" in critical thinking, which are mistakes one generally makes when trying to think critically. It was a completely new and interesting topic I had never thought about before which made the course really stand out to me.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Do not procrastinate. It may seem like you have all the time in the world when the teacher tells you your final draft is due next Sunday but the time comes and goes very quickly. Also really take the time to read whatever readings are assigned. You may never have to read these articles again but they hold more information than you can imagine and will open your mind to new opinions and possibilities.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    Well I would honestly would only recommend Michelle Stewart to those students who want a challenge. This class is interesting and was always challenging me to do better. If you are looking for a class that is a walk in the park, look for a different professor. She would keep you on your toes and trying to get you to think in different ways and help you to become better students overall.

    Course highlights:

    To be honest, it taught me to not procrastinate that much. I still do to some certain degree but not as bad as I used to. Her essays are actually very challenging to write so it also helped me get a better understanding of what I was capable of.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    Read before class and prepare your essays once you get the prompt. Start writing right away so you get get an idea of what you want to say. You never really know until you start writing. Once your thoughts are on paper then you should try and organizate them and make it into an proper essay. What happens most of the time you could find an idea and that you never realize that you had until it is a common recurring theme.
