    | Would highly recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This class is very heavy on class discussions, and in my opinion the best feature about the course!

    Course highlights:

    There were 4 books assigned during the summer term to complete which I thought to be insane! As reading and writing assignments were commencing I learned to value the class because I would have never pushed myself to complete a book alone. College truly is an opportunity for students to expand their abilities.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    You need a lot of determination in order to read through the books assigned. If you do this, class discussions will be something to look forward to!

    | Would recommend.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course because it really taught me the basis of how to write several different types of essays. Professor Dean's lectures were very informative and he was very good at explaining exactly what he wanted for each assignment. This english course actually made me work and taught valuable information that will undoubtedly help with future classes.

    Course highlights:

    The course consisted of conducting 4-5 essays, all with different instructions about the topics and formatting that has translated to classes I am in now. The largest paper I wrote was roughly 3000 words, but the professor breaks up the assignment to be done through out the semester so there isn't too much work to do at one time. The only other part of the grading was 5 short quizzes that required you to analyze a passage and define difficult vocabulary, which I have found myself using more of.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    In order to succeed in this class, a student has to get ahead on essay assignments and do a little every day rather than procrastinate and wait until the last day. Personally, I've noticed a spike in my papers when I took the time to write and edit them. Also, asking the professor questions about a paper during his office hours would be wise to do. Not only do you get direct information from the professor, but he sees you trying hard to complete an assignment and will be more lenient with his grading.
