    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    Professor Weidner was a great experience for me. He made English enjoyable and I learned so much.

    Course highlights:

    English 1A is a college course and therefore you should expect to be writing a couple of essays. What the professor did was make the topics of the essays relevant to our location, which is Los Angeles. We learned about the Los Angeles river and it's history, and that made it more easy for us to learn.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Prepare to be inspired and learn from one of the greats.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    English 1A gives you an introduction to what is highly expected of you for English 1C. There is not a lot of tests or quizzes. Instead it is majority writing which is nightly expected in 1C.

    Course highlights:

    There are a lot of very interesting topics that you may choose to write about in this course. Some relate to everyday talks about politics or other current events that occur and some are in regards to your heritage and family background. I learned how to expand my vocabulary when writing professional essays and letters along with expanding basic comprehension and study skills. The more you read and write, the better you will understand the material and expand your mind.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Pay close attention to the syllabus from the professor in regards to his grading policies and expectations for the class. If you slip and do not follow through completely in what he/she is asking of you to complete, it will hurt your grade in some way, shape, or form. Also I would sit more towards the front of the classroom to fully grasp every piece of information the professor gives you for any essay topic or just random notes from their power points.
