    | Would recommend.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this because students need to be able to understand as to why they are getting a scholarship for college. They also need to know why they are doing what they are doing.

    Course highlights:

    I learned a little more about myself and why I want to go to college.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    Be really thorough when you are thinking about this and be honest. Because, honesty is the best policy. and if you don't get the scholarship then it fine, there are more out there for you to get!

    | Would highly recommend.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course because it is quite interesting to see so many different perspectives within one class. This course is all about argument and the perspectives of each and every argument. However if you hate reading or if you tend to procrastinate this class is not for you. There is heavy research required.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights for me would have to be the discussions. Why? Due to all the interesting points of views that you would see within each argument. I learned so many new things with each discussion and argument we have discussed within the class.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    Do not ever procrastinate in this course, always stay up to date with news also because this course also discusses what is happening today.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would absolutely recommend this course to fellow peers because it is intellectually challenging, yet not in the overwhelmingly, claustrophobic way. The work of this course is more intellectually advanced than the average busy work that is assigned in normal High School level classes. Since it is a Dual Enrollment course, you are expected to carry your own weight, in and out of class. Conversation is essential in this course because we can learn a vast array of knowledge from each other. Mr. Ault has expanded my ability to communicate intellectually and socially amongst my peers in a way so that I can grow as an individual. This course really adapts to the students needs. The topics discussed are in depth, and if you enjoy learning like I do, this course is an excellent choice for you. If I were to give advice to my past self about things to brush up on before beginning this class, I would recommend reading classic novels and becoming familiar with authors, philosophers, and professors and their works. It's not required for the class, but it definitely helps to associate and contribute to discussions.

    Course highlights:

    Throughout this course, there were many individualized options for learning. For example, we wrote concept analysis and research essays and the student got to choose the topic. Then, Mr. Ault would consult with us, as a group and individually so that we can expand our ideas and literary concepts throughout our essays. Another highlight of the course was the conversation. Everyone is included- and the topics were very meaningful. We discussed current events and relations, such as protests, debates, elections, etc.. The environment was argumentative, explanatory, inclusive, and extraordinary in every aspect.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    In order to succeed in this class, you have to want to learn. You have to have the drive to do better, learn more, and achieve more. This course gives you intellect that you walk out of class still thinking about because it matters. The topics are related to what is happening in the world right now- and it is your job as the student to absorb as much as you can. The purpose of this class is more focused on the expansion of knowledge and less around a superficial grade. And for that reason, you have to try.
