Not too easy. Not too difficult.
My middle school had a horrible writing program. I remember writing a paper in 8th grade and receiving a 100% on it. So their curriculum never proved itself to be disastrous until I entered Baldwin. This writing class provides a discussion based environment that encourages speaking and critical thinking. I opened up in this class. Take the class and put your all into the discussions to better advance your public speaking. I learned how to writing in this class as well. The teacher took time to work with me when I was confused and gave good feedback. I found a love for writing in this class.
Highlights were reading Macbeth, as I love Shakespeare. We acted out some of the scenes to further advance our learning. We learned how to further read shakespeare and developed critical thinking and writing skills. Another great book we read in this class was O' Pioneers. This gave us perspective on literature and history that we hadn't had before. We wrote many papers on both of these books, and the paper writing process helped us develop our writing skills. We further learned how to write a well structured paper and develop clear, thoughtful, and concise theses.

Advice for students:
Definitely take it and put your all into reading the texts. If you use your full brain power in every nights' readings, then you will get the most out of the class. Make sure to take notes when you have a good idea, as it may come up in the discussions the next day. Also, go to the teacher for help if you are having problems. They are there to help you.
