    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Communication is an imperative skill for almost any future career. This course is an excellent introduction to communication through writing. The course material is interesting, and the teacher's exercises help improve reading and thinking skills in addition to writing skills. It is a great class to take for personal development and for the necessary skills of the 21st century.

    Course highlights:

    The course outlines rhetorical strategies and fallacies, both of which are used in persuasive writing. Students learn to recognize persuasive techniques and pitfalls in others' writing, and strengthen their own writing by using the strategies and eliminating fallacious thinking. Large writing assignments were given throughout the year to exemplify our writing improvement.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    In order to succeed, you need to read all the class material carefully and reread if you don't understand it. Though the material is discussed in class, you need to learn how to interpret and evaluate the writing by yourself in order to do well on tests and other assignments. It is also important to write multiple drafts of papers before turning it in.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    This is a tough course but I feel that it is helping me better prepare for college. There is a heavy focus on writing as well as understanding why an author writes the way he/she does and how the reader influences an author's writing style.

    Course highlights:

    I feel that I have become a stronger writer. I've become familiar with literary synthesis and style and have developed a general appreciation for American literature.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    By reading before hand and actively participating in class discussions, you will gain a better understanding of the text.
