    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This course is a mandatory course if you wish to be a successful writer in school and in life. Life is full of words, and your communication depends on your writing. Whether you are enrolled in a college university writing your scholarship essay, or you are writing a resume or cover letter for your first job out of college, English is a course that is vital to communication skills that push an individual to a successful future.

    Course highlights:

    In this course, the highlights were the varying topics of essays you are able to write. Learning how to write a research essay can be difficult, but it is also very intriguing to study a topic that an individual is interested in or is passionate about. I learned how to write an entire essay beginning with a blank sheet of paper. All it takes to succeed is a small amount of courage to toss aside your fear and frustration with the blank sheet of paper; write what comes to mind and plan to fix it later. Don't expect perfection in your writing because that is what rough drafts are for.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    To the students who are willing to take this course, take your time. Do not expect perfection, and don't rush through it. Pace yourself and allow yourself to learn new things. Step out of your comfort zone. Don't be afraid of a blank piece of paper. Allow yourself to free your thoughts and you will find that you can write just as well as you can speak.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Barb is a very great teacher! She had everyone make name tags so she could learn our names, which most professors I know won't do. She made it a calm and safe learning environment when no one was wrong. I was able to met a lot of new people that I no consider friends.

    Course highlights:

    Every Thursday we would have a discussion about a chapter of the book we read. She gave us questions that we can talk about but let us talk about anything we thought was important. This allowed me to improve my discussion skills and let me learn how to get involved with discussions.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    She gave us homework every night so as long as you do that you will be fine. And don't forget to start on the papers she gives you right when she tells you about them. It is quite a busy quarter!

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Overall this was a good class but it included a lot of homework. Along with class work there was always an article you had to read every night and answer questions in 150+. I personally am not a big fan of homework but I would take this class again. Barb is pretty passionate about her work and is willing to help in any way possible.

    Course highlights:

    Through this course I was able to get outside of my comfort zone and make new friends. This course also involved a lot of reading and looking between the lines. It also helped me learn about college level sources that you can use in papers

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Always do the homework every night no matter what. If the homework is late she will take off a quarter of the points every day it is late. Don't procrastinate! There will be four papers over the course of the quarter. She does give time to edit the papers but you will be writing a paper and editing another at the same time.
