    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    I loved this class! This course was centered around the Harry Potter series, so each essay we wrote was related to it. I love Harry Potter, but I don't like writing essays very much. This class made it so enjoyable for me and I improved my writing skills without even realizing it.

    Course highlights:

    My favorite part of this course was one of the essays we wrote where we had to create a completely fictional explanation for a magical phenomenon. I really liked how we had to really utilize our imagination for that essay.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Of course, always give yourself enough to write an essay. Don't procrastinate!! Make sure you write a draft and revise it at least once.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    Mr. Rambo is an excellent instructor, and explains the concepts needed in the class in a way that is easy to understand. If you pay attention in class, work on your assignments, and ask for help when you need it, you will pass this class easily.

    Course highlights:

    Mainly, I learned how to better control what I am saying and how to make my editing more effective. The instructor also emphasized that with work, most anyone can write well, which was encouraging.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Make sure to pay attention to the requirements for the papers so that you don't lose points over something that could have been avoided. Also, when you edit your papers, look specifically for the grammar mistakes that you know you are prone to make.
