    | Would not recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    For students who have had even a small amount of experience with writing in high school, this course is useless and frustrating. For students who have taken AP Literature courses and are used to writing at a high level consistently, this course is mind numbing. The "professors" are graduate students who usually have a complex of some sortt, and they range from handing out A's like candy to never handing out more than a B for any given class.

    Course highlights:

    I learned very little. The teachers attempted to change everything about my writing style and the way they taught writing was not anything close to what Professors in the Departments of Education or English expected out of their students.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    It is a mandatory course at my college so I would recommend taking it elsewhere and transferring credit or taking dual credit courses that will cover it in high school. Plus, it's cheaper that way. If you absolutely cannot avoid it, then take it with a grain of salt knowing you probably won't use it in the future and hope you can get candy A's. I'm sure not every course is the same, but the GTA teaching my class was horrid and couldn't teach, so I would hope and pray you get someone better than what I got.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course because I learned a lot about the subject and was taught to analyze social situations deeper.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights of the course were when i got my revised papers back from the teacher and I received an improved score each time. The teacher gave me great commentary on my papers and gave me the proper tools to improve my writing. It was great source of pride when I could see my writing improving every week.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    You need to put in the work to succeed in this course. You can't just expect that class time and a couple hours of homework will get you a good grade. You have to put hard thought into your papers and think about the deeper meanings of things. If you are given the opportunity to revise your papers like I was, you need to take advantage of it no matter the score so that you can keep improving.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This class challenges previously held expectations and prejudices as well as makes you think outside of the small social bubble you were born into. It also teaches new writing styles.

    Course highlights:

    I gained new insights into social expectations and conditions. I enjoyed the different points of view from the authors in the book.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Actually do the book readings and questions. Take advantage of the chance to rewrite essays.
