    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.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Do all of the work asked, even if the assignment is small. She is a fantastic teacher if you listen, not even during a lesson, she teaches as she does and as she speaks about any matters really. You will find yourself understanding why it is you do, feel, or react a certain way if you take the class seriously or some days we took the class lightly and it was glorious. If you are going to invest your time in something, fully invest it. This is one of those once in a lifetime opportunities.

    Course highlights:

    I learned so much about myself and those who surround me, not just their personality but about their home lives, why they act the way they do, their religious preferences or not their religious preferences, their cultural background, world religions, why people get tattoos and piercings, markings of adulthood in different cultures, read really beautiful pieces of literature and I can't say I was a strong advocate for reading high school curriculum requested novels.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Just go in with an open mind and be ready to take on the struggles of accepting who and what you really are

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    Man's Search For Meaning is a great way to introduce students to topics that may not necessarily be comfortable for them to talk about, as it focuses on them as individuals to open up and focus on improving themselves as a person.

    Course highlights:

    Some of the highlights were that we were able to watch "The Freedom Writers" which educated us on many of the problems plaguing students today. We also reenacted scenes from Hamlet, which helped us understand the ideas behind it.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Focus on doing the classwork and turn in work on time.
