This class was tough.
This course really forces students to be independent thinkers. Every teacher who mentors this course truly dedicates themselves to the material and more importantly the students. We studied crucial pieces of American Literature, like The Scarlet Letter by Nathaniel Hawthorne, The Invisible Man by Ralph Ellison, and The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald, as well as poems by Emily Dickinson and others. Ms. D, my teacher, is always available in her office and gives the best constructive criticism, which sustains the student's main ideas and style of work, while guiding them on the path to better writing.
I learned to be thorough in my work - to make every word count. Ms. D emphasized the importance of brevity and clarity. Truly a great woman.

Advice for students:
Meet with Ms. D!!!!!! I cannot underline this enough. She will make sure that you are being the best writer you can be. Also, do not leave assignments for the night before they are due - never a good idea, especially for a class that requires quality work.
