    | Would highly recommend.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course because I gained so much knowledge and read so many great books. This course was very hands on and we did a lot of group activities where we worked with out pairs. My teacher made sure the work was enjoyable for all and still managed to make sure we were getting all of the information we needed out of it.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights of this course were the books we read. The papers we wrote, and the projects we did. Over the course of the year we read about 4 book and when I tell you they were all great! One of my favorites was "Huckleberry Finn" it taught me that everyone has some good in them and how people that have differences amongst each other can still be similar in ways. Such as the two main characters Jim (a black slave) and Huck (a white foster child). The essays we wrote were always very interesting topics and we had the option to pick from many and our projects were always self expression projects that had to do with what we were learning at that specific time.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    In oder to succeed all you need to do is make sure you're reading whatever book is assigned to you and that all work is handed in on time. The course is very straight forward and it isn't a course you have to stress a lot, as long as you're doing what you need to do.
