    Mrs. Elfring is by far the best professor you can have for an English class.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course because it encourages you to use your own experiences and self expression in order to write passionately. Structure and research is not necessarily stressed much because the value of this course is more for the benefit of learning more about oneself.

    Course highlights:

    By writing about my own experiences, as opposed to a given topic, I was able to learn that the words will flow from my head onto the paper as long as I write something that I know about. I was also able to learn how to connect my personal thoughts and feelings into any given topic.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Take your time with the assignments. A good essay should not be rushed because you may be unable to take the time out to really grasp the emotion that should be included in a paper.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Although this class is a requirement, I would still recommend it along with the professor. He challenges students to write in a way that one may not be use to, but it is great for improving your writing skills.

    Course highlights:

    We were able to watch a movie in this class and afterwards, we analyzed the meaning behind the main characters' motivation throughout the film. It was interested to see how you can take so much information from a single movie and write a detailed analysis about it.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    My advice to students taking this course is to not procrastinate on work. You may be given alternate assignments while having to continue working on large projects and papers. Do not fall behind on work, otherwise it will become more difficult to publish a good essay.
