Not too easy. Not too difficult.
This was one of my favorite courses because of the teacher. Mr. Reese gives honest criticism on essay that helps you improve your writing skills. The selection of books that you read and write on are interesting and relatively short. My least favorite part of this course was the summer assignment that consisted of reading "Uncle Tom's Cabin" and writing an essay. Most of my summer consisted on purely trying to understand the book and made it very unenjoyable. However, there were many other books we read like "The Great Gatsby" and "Farewell to Manzanar" that were good reads and fun to write on.
The highlights of this English course were reading "The Great Gatsby" and "Farewell to Manzanar." Reading "The Great Gatsby" was amazing because the book is interesting and you connect with the characters easily. "Farewell to Manzanar" was one of my favorite books because we got to look at the Japanese American lifestyle during WWII after the bombing of Pearl Harbor.

Advice for students:
Do not procrastinate. Remove contractions and slang from your vocabulary. Every week you will have a miniature vocabulary quiz that you should study for and pass easily because the points will add up. Do not turn in anything late and read the chapters assigned because there will most likely be a quiz.
