    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    straight forward expectations, challenging without being too hard. This is my favorite professor, he's serious but does't surprise you with tests that are too difficult or an overwhelming amount of homework

    He liked for us to be concise and in training us to do so he made us put alot of info into a short paper. it was a good practice.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    keep up on the reading, be on time, turn in papers on time

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This professor prepares you well for the challenges that lay ahead in English 2. She will introduce you to logical fallacies, annotated bibliographies, critical analysis, synthesis, research outlines, and great American literature that ties into current topics and academic arguments, as well as how to pick out a great thesis to argue.

    Course highlights:

    She clearly explains the assignment requirements as well as instructs the class on how to meet these specifications. Set aside 2 hours daily for reading the novel she will assign. (that's about 8 to 10 hours a week) Also, do your work on time. The deadlines are very generous, so don't cheat yourself out of a letter grade by procrastinating. She is funny and friendly. Raise you hand, participate, think of questions to ask, ask them; enjoy learning and learning will enjoy you back.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    She doesn't write much on the board, but when she does, take notes on it. Stay ahead, even, of the readings. Really learn the MLA citation format, it is easy and it is not going away so get familiar with it. Use real books and academic databases for your sources. Take your time with the quizzes - but mainly read read read. If you read, you may be able to argue your answer on a quiz~ sometimes the quiz questions are misleading.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    The class was very easy to comprehend and very straightforward. It was essentially a review from high school English but it kept up my writing skills fairly well.

    Course highlights:

    The teacher covers a lot of MLA formatting information and there is quite a bit of drafting which helps your writing techniques a lot.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    Take notes, show up to class for quizzes, and outline your papers.
