This class was tough.
I would highly recommend this course because my overall knowledge of being able to write papers properly and writing in general went from a 0 to a 5. How did I obtain this? Well, I learned so much in this class because my teacher was really good at what she did a.k.a teaching. She had an overall knowledge of English and went in depth of writing papers. (For Example: MLA Format, Siting Sources, Thesis Statements, Body Paragraphs,ect.) My advice to you, if you are worried about English or struggle with, have an open mind to learn! I know I struggled a lot in English because it is not my forte, but at the end of the year I have learned so much.
I think the highlight of this class was the research paper. I though this was by far the hardest thing I ever had to do for English. The research paper that we assigned to us included much depth to it. We had to find books, articles, and online websites for our sources. (finding reliable information on our topic was hard). Then, we had to constantly turn in rough drafts or a paragraph at a time. Though, I did not enjoy the process I learned so much from it and it turned into a really positive outcome. Now I am able to write papers properly and have no problem when it comes to actually writing it. I am so glad I took this course and was able to get a really good teacher!

Advice for students:
Do not give up! Easier said than done. Think of it like this, you need to pass this class in order to go to college and get credit for it, so you might as well do good in the class and maybe even learn a thing or two. Also time management is a life saver when it comes to a busy schedule during school. Let me repeat that again, TIME MANAGEMENT. Use it!
