    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I recommend this course mainly because of the teacher. He is one of the best teachers I have had in my entire life. In the beginning of his course he explains to each student that if you read everything he assignments, you will be prepared for a college reading course. This is so true, as he assigns a rigorous reading schedule, but also one that educates you for life.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights in this course involved essay writing, reading comprehension, and grammar. Each night a reading was assigned, whether it's a short story, novel, or poem, and the next class day the teacher discussed the reading to allow the student to fully comprehend it. Occasionally there were pop-quizzes in the beginning of class to keep the students in check. The essays were assigned for homework, usually over a weekend, and prior to the due date the teacher made sure the students' outline for the essay was relevant and top-notch. Towards the end of the year, grammar was introduced into the course. It was taught very well, and sentences were reviewed throughout class. The grammar portion of this class can perfectly prepare a student for standardized tests and assignments in general, as it allows a student to learn reasoning behind the structure of the English language.

    Hours per week:

    12+ hours

    Advice for students:

    The advice I would give is to make sure the student actually reads all the material the teacher assigns. Your reading skills and comprehension skills will improve drastically. Do not fall victim to sites like SparkNotes and such.
