    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Currently I am attending Dutchess Community College as an education major. My past and present experience in education has enlightened me on my purpose in society. I am taking English 101 for the second time in order to get a better understanding to create a sturdy foundation of knowledge. Mrs. Lippers class focuses on what the basic structures of a college paper contains. She is a tough grader but allows for rewrites. Her progressive styles of teaching lead to a relatable learning environment. Re-writing my papers to structure forced me to learn how to stay on topic and clearly send a message to my reader.

    Course highlights:

    The class highlights structural writing illuminated by what the students care about. This type of characterized education makes the curriculum based on what matters to the student. I was able to learn how to clearly make points in essays about personal and social topics that resonated with me.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Anyone who is planning on taking Mrs.Lippers course must be ready to learn because grading is based on personal achievement, with options for submitting rewrites there is no reason any one cannot get an A.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    It teaches you the basic necessities to the world of reading and writing. ENG 101 is entirely based off of the primary essentials desired in order to help you succeed in college. Your college papers are prompted by the format instructed in this class and will guide you into achieving that A that you more than likely deserved.

    Course highlights:

    The teacher, of course! Cavanuagh was the perfect professor for the job. He was completely direct and cohesive in his lectures and, even if you already knew the lesson, still taught you something you never knew. He taught me MLA format and how to cite things like newspapers, articles, short stories, and so much more.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    It is a definitely must have to put this course into your life. Even if you think you have the English world set on your shoulders just fine, one last time taking it wouldn't hurt to make sure you've revised and gone over such important information.

    | No strong feelings either way.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    It is a great course and does come with it's positives, but overall it is a lot of work. As a high school student taking college courses, it can be quite a lot to handle, but it is well worth it. The class has a lot of interesting assignments, and makes you think a lot. I recommend it as long as you can handle the amount of work assigned.

    Course highlights:

    This course taught me how to think outside the box and dive deeper into some of my own personal interests. I found out a lot of different things about not only myself, but the outside world around me that made me think harder. Overall, what I learned and discovered this year were the highlights of this course thus far.

    Hours per week:

    12+ hours

    Advice for students:

    Do the work on time that you are assigned. If all the work is not completed on time, the next assignments will start to add up and before you know it there is no possible way to complete everything you missed. Complete the work on time!
