    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    It was enriching in the sense that we didn't learn just about the proper techniques of writing, but we read some of the greatest books ever written, and I was really able to widen my horizons on literature and understand more about the amazing world of reading and writing.

    Course highlights:

    When we were assigned to read a new book, we felt this excitement of knowing we were about to delve deep in a whole other world. When you read, you transport to other places, and this class was able to use that to its advantage. We also got to watch the movies after we finished reading the books, and had to critique the ways they were different. We did this so many times, I now find myself to be quite the movie critique.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    It's definitely not just a class to slack off in. You actually have to read the books, not sparknote's them, to really grasp what the class is about.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course because Ms. Hendricks does a phenomenal job at making nonfiction interesting. I have read some of the most interesting pieces and learned about different types of nonfiction styles, like satires and expository.

    Course highlights:

    Her class has helped develop my analytical skills, along with comprehension, due to the fact that this course is strictly about what is being presented in front of you and not what we perceive. or infer, the piece to be about.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    STUDY!!! REREAD!! PRACTICE!! This course is no joke when it comes to essay writing. I would advise anyone who takes this course to be sure that they spend time studying vocabulary, rereading the passages and articles that were previously assigned, and practice their writing techniques.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I would definitely recommend this course to anyone willing to put in the hard work and time into applying themselves to obtain all the material that they will learn throughout the year. I enjoyed all the essays and reading even though it was a very difficult.

    Course highlights:

    I learned how to effectively analyze, synthesize and create an argumentative essay. I learned how to use syntax and other writing strategies to create good sentence structure to overall make a good paragraph. Also, how to identify rhetorical strategies that writers use throughout their work.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Make sure you prepare to be challenged and learn how to balance your time. Study all the material and don't wait until last minute to complete any assignment.
