    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Personally, English is one of my most dreaded subjects. I feel like I've never been good at writing, and it's never something that I love doing. I just wanted to take this class to get it out of the way because it's required for graduation. Luckily, I selected Taylor Torres as my professor. Instead of the average, boring how to write a paper and analyze poems class, we focused solely on race, class and gender. During the semester, he was very engaging and was always available for help. He never tried to form my papers into his way of writing and something that he wanted hear, but instead he valued my opinion and gave constructive feedback.

    Course highlights:

    One of the biggest highlights of this course were the discussions that we would have everyday. I was never afraid to speak up about my opinion because as an instructor, Torres was never impolite about what anyone had to say. Our discussions were always very deep and constructively debatable. I was able to gain more knowledge about three topics that I knew about, but gained more insight on the details of the topics; race, gender, and social class.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    There are discussion questions due every class on assigned readings. Completing these questions are an easy way to keep your grade up, and they were always interesting articles. Completing the questions are pretty mandatory because they are what the discussions during classes are bases off of. As long as you complete the questions, go to class, and take the time to work on essays ahead of time, the class will be very enjoyable.
