    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Everyone needs to take English classes as their core courses. For some people, that's no big deal, but for others it's a nightmare. I personally love to write, but essays make me cringe. However, this course made writing essays not as a difficult as one perceives. Professor Telesca was fair and thorough in her grading. Her lessons teach you everything you will need to know about interpreting literary works, analyzing them, and how to write a proper essay. She dedicates her time to her students and offers her free time generously. She is thorough in what you can improve on and will sit with you and go over anything that you're having trouble on. I recommend taking this class with her because by the end of the semester, you'll have a stronger understanding of essay-writing and literary works.

    Course highlights:

    I learned a lot about symbolism. I'm one of those people who like to enjoy what I read based on plot rather than plot devices; essentially I'm so caught up in what's happening that I don't look at the little details. This class has shown me how to look at literary works with a more detailed eye and how to appreciate them as well. This is turn, gave me a plethora of subjects to broach in my essays.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    Always ask the professor for help. Good ones like Professor Telesca will help you and will give you advice on how to improve. Always study for tests. Reread any literary works you're given at least more than twice. Most importantly, talk to your peers! It's great to bounce off ideas and to have your essays edited with an objective eye. Also, don't be discouraged! You'll get it.
