    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would highly recommend this course. It's an immersive class to really help prepare for college essays. The teacher, Mrs. Bartole is very thorough with her teaching style. The curriculum is based on how a college professor would grade your paper. As such, she helps prepare you for how you should plan, write, revise, and finalize a college essay. This is a junior class, therefore, you have the necessary writing skills for college, but also for your senior. It also helps with essays that you can type for college applications and scholarships. She shows in various ways how your writing should be able to get the attention of the reader. The class does have a more difficult grading system, but study hard and paying attention will get you by easily. Overall great class with an awesome teacher.

    Course highlights:

    I suppose the highlight for this course that I personally benefitted more from was learning the set up of how a college paper should be and how it should appear to the reader. It is a basic set up with an intro, body, and conclusion; however, Mrs. Bartole was much more thorough with it. Each section had it's own important role that supported the paper as a whole. The introduction should be able to pull the reader in and cause them to read further on. It should contain the overview of the key points as to what they argument (paper) is about. The body follows up it's two or three points that extensively elaborate on the main point. Each body paragraph is comprised of PIE. "P" is the point of the paragraph, which should be just. "I" is the illustration and should provide an example or thought for the reader to visualize. The "E" is the "meat" of it all. It is the explanation and should be the key factor in the body paragraphs into explaining what this particular point is. After the body paragraphs, it is finalized with the conclusion that does not merely repeat the points of the previous paragraphs, but helps to piece it all together as one. This really helped me the most in this course because it gave me the practice I needed for the future.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Study hard and pay attention to the resources she provides.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would absolutely highly recommend this class. During my time in this class, I may have been a goof ball, but I truly did learn a lot of useful material to help with college classes. She explicitly goes through the material and provides useful resources to refer to if you are stuck or lost. Plus Mrs. Bartole is an awesome teacher who takes time out of her free periods to help students comprehend the curriculum better.

    Course highlights:

    I suppose my highlight of this course was when we learned the set up on how to produce a college paper and how it would look. It would look pretty standard as to all other papers, starting with an "attention grabber" that you elaborate on by providing two or three points to support or even counter the argument. This is followed by the body paragraphs that should extensively elaborate the point being made. Then finalize the argument with all around conclusion that not merely repeats the points, but shows how they all meet the criteria of the argument and they are valid to it. I found this the highlight because this is something I struggled with before, and even during class, but she made it much clearer and in a way that I could comprehend better.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Take notes as you go because she moves a bit fast at times. Plus really pay attention to all the examples and resources she provides and goes over, as they are key to knowing what is going on.
