    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course to anyone interested in increasing their reading and writing skills. Prior to this class, I had no motivation to read in my free time nor try to find a hidden or deeper meaning in the text I was reading. This class really pushed me to do this and do it well, however. I highly recommend this to anyone who feels the regular literacy classes offered are not challenging enough for them to go farther and do better in school.

    Course highlights:

    I learned how to analyze texts as well as find an appreciation for reading novels. I had always hated literacy classes but I was excited to go to this class everyday I had it.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    You need to read anything you can get your hands on. I found that trying to read a novel every 5 weeks or so drastically helped me in this course as well as finding out how much I truly enjoy reading. You also need to have a good work ethic as well as appreciation for learning. Other students who didn't seem to care about school didn't succeed as well as others.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course because although it is challenging, it really helps develop the English language and understand more academic vocabulary. After taking this course, I noticed a lot of overlap on the ACT and on the ASVAB tests and taking this course helped me a lot on those tests. I understood some of the vocabulary that without taking the course, I would have no idea what the words meant. This course was challenging and if you are not interested in literature and language, I would not recommend this course. However, if you are a bookworm and interested in challenging yourself and getting college credits, this class is the right class for you.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights of this course were writing our timed essays. We did them quite often throughout both semesters and although I dreaded them, it helped me prepare a lot for the AP test. We also analyzed movies which was really interesting. We read a lot of books so for all you bookworms, you would love this class. We learned a lot about new vocabulary words, how to write different types of essays (rhetorical, argumentative, and supportive), and how to analyze various pieces of work/literature to find the meaning behind the work. Taking this class also helps a lot in getting you prepared for college and it makes English 111 a lot easier. It was a lot of work and was difficult, but it was fun to explore different aspects of literature and language and developed a new respect for them both.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Pace yourself. There was a lot of work and it was constant. Whether it was writing essays, doing analysis/annotating different pieces of literature/articles, or reading. The course was assignment heavy but if you pace yourself and don't procrastinate and put everything off, you will help yourself out a lot. Also, when writing your timed essays, although they are challenging, pay attention to punctuation and grammar. Don't add in a lot of unnecessary wording to make your essay longer; get to the point. Don't skip the readings either, it makes the quizzes very hard if you haven't read what you were supposed to! If you stay on top of your assignments and ask for help and what you can do better on, you will have no problem getting an A in this course.
