I recommend this course because it will allow students learn and comprehend English literature in a variety of fun ways! As opposed to AP English, Dual Credit English/English 1302 is a class where you will still get college credit as long as you pass two district exams throughout the year and generally pass the class with a grade of a C or better. You are more likely guarenteed to get college credit through this course because all you have to do it write well and write smart to pass; as opposed to AP English, where you may have to score a 4 or better on the exam in order to be considered by colleges and it isnt guarenteed because each college has their own score they accept and sometimes scoring even a 3 wont cut it. English 1302 is a fun and challenging course; theyre arent many tests or quizzes and the most the students will find themselves doing is reading a short story from the textbook and writing an essay about it.
The highlights of this course were the essays. I know it may sound tedious but the assigned essays allowed me to learn proper grammar and syntax in order to get high grades and to prepare for resumes and scholarship essays. I have learned to love English through this course due to how understanding my instructor was and through the interesting and brain stimulating prompts we were assigned to write about.

Advice for students:
I advice not slacking off and not thinking the instructor is a push-over. The instructor will give each student opportunities to bring up their grade with makeup work as long as the student displays the need and dedication within the course. Always stay ontop of the assigned essays, proofread and make sure to even get assignments done early -- that will show good benefits. Additionally, ALWAYS do the reading because that is what your essays will be on, and never be afraid to ask for help! I wish I had known to not be afraid to ask for help from my classmates and advisor because it really proves to be beneficial.
