    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this class because the class name is basically what it is about. It is based on the novel "Man Search for Meaning" where as individuals in this particular class you discover yourself. Students get prompted to dig deep into themselves and analyze different cultures from Mexico, Middle East, India, etc. As well, we did all the common core requirements and managed to find something new about ourselves. Our teacher provided a safe space which made learning fun.

    Course highlights:

    From this course I gained academic enlightenment. I feel like a more well rounded person. As a senior, this class gave me the real world realization.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    I would advice to come into this class with an open mind. You will learn so much about reality and to not be afraid of change.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would definitely recommend this class because of the variety of the assignments (none are ever boring), the enthusiasm and effort put in by the teacher, the personalized help each student can easily access, and the interesting course material taught. Students are encouraged to become open and engage in class discussion, and soon become comfortable sharing their work with the class. Each student keeps an art journal, where both graded assignments and the student's own doodles or optional work is kept. The class does do a fair amount of writing, but each writing assignment is meaningful and relevant to the coursework, and is returned to the student with plenty of helpful edits and suggestions. The course studies literature from all over the world, studying Buddhism, Christianity, Islam, and plenty of worldwide legendary writers from various points in human history.

    Course highlights:

    One of the many highlights of the course is the art journal. The art journal, while not the most important piece of work the students complete in regards to their grade, is a great and entertaining component of the class that allows students to express themselves, with the option of whether or not they want to share with others. Students can make their art journal however personal (or unipersonal) they would like it to be, and can decorate it however they wish. It's been really helpful to have a creative piece in the class that can be a form of therapeutic outlet, but that doesn't take up an excessive amount of time or points in the class.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Don't stress too much about points in the art journal, while it is a large graded assignment at the end of the year, a missing assignment or two in the journal will not have a significant effect on your grade. Influential assignments are mostly projects and writing assignments, and you'll get the most points from those by breaking them up into chunks and working on them bit by bit, and having someone proofread them before you turn them in.
