    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would definitely recommend this course to others because I feel that it has really prepared me for college English courses and simply for life. This course has taught me so many valuable critical thinking skills and has showed me new ways to be creative. Mr. Slagel was one of the best educators I've ever had the privilege of knowing. He had an amazing ability of combining just the right amount of fun in his teaching, in a way that made learning so much more attainable and desirable for us as students. I've become such a better writer from the things I've learned in this class. I've also learned and better understood all the grammar that Iʻve learned over the years. Overall, this class was one of the best I've ever taken. I'm very glad I made the decision to take this course and Iʻd definitely recommend it to any other students.

    Course highlights:

    I learned so much in this course, but if I had to choose the specifics of those things, I would have to say first that I learned how to be an effective writer. The assigned writings for this class really made me think about my writing in new perspectives. We were required to write most of our assignments in shorter lengths than I was used to, and this, along with numerous amount of new vocabulary, helped me to write papers and pieces of literature that might have been short, but had so much meaning and thought behind them. My vocabulary and use of literary terms also improved a lot because of this course. Another area that this course really helped me with was grammar. I had previously taken courses that taught grammar, but this class effectively reviewed and thoroughly went over all of those rules that I'd forgotten and made it so much easier to apply them in my writing, different novels, and other pieces of literature.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    I would tell the students considering this course to be prepared to work hard. You only get as much out of this class as you put into it. There are many opportunities to go in for study help. Speaking as a student who went in to a majority of those study help periods, I would say that those helped me immensely with all of the grammar quizzes we had and a couple of papers I had to write. I would say to be prepared for a lot of quizzes. We had at least one quiz a class. Do the readings, because many of the quizzes, papers, and discussions we complete center around the specific details and broad topics covered in those readings. The last piece of advice I have for this course is to really take time and effort in everything you do for this class. The assignments I took the most time on and really put a lot of thinking and creativeness into were the works that I sat back and looked at with a lot of pride and amazement. This class will really change and improve you as a writer, student, and person if you let it.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Aside from reading, you will also be able to review and strengthen grammar, learn how to write a concise essay, and participate in deeper level discussions that are then related to current issues we see today. This English class is like no other, and I assure you that you will enjoy coming to this class every day.

    Course highlights:

    I had always felt a little uneasy with my grammar but because we learn a new section of grammar each week, I have been able to build my confidence in writing to ensure I make no mistake in the future. Though some of the works we read may seem intimidating, we break down the sections and discuss what happened with every reading section. This makes us feel more comfortable with the material and encourages us to continue reading and interpreting on our own.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    We do have to do a lot of short essays and writing pieces, however, this is great practice to work on focusing your many ideas and articulating them in a brief essay, but still loading it with knowledge. Like I previously stated the reading is broken down but be sure to ask any questions if you are still unsure!

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    This class is very informative. It teaches you what and how to budget everything you need for home or business. It even teaches you that our government uses a Economics and Planning Department to run our city and state. This subject is extremely important in the fundamentals of everyday living.

    Course highlights:

    I learned that economics touches us in so many different ways. I feel that once you learn and understand this people will have an easier time setting themselves on the right path and further their understanding on how to live manageably .

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Keep an open mind. Know that this will help anyone and everyone in everyday life.
