    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this class because the teacher is amazing and he presents each poem and unit as a gift that each student must study and understand on his/her own terms, which allows for greater personal reflection and application.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights of the course definitely come at the end, which is Romanticism! The highlight was definitely Mary Shelley's "Frankenstein" which tells readers that in the obsessive pursuit of knowledge can corrupt a man until he is unrecognizable

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Read, read, read, read!! In this course, periodic open question essay tests will be given. It is important to have read and understood multiple titles to use during such tests.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    Mr. Hedgepeth inspires me to do whatever I want in life. He lets us know that it's okay if you don't know what you want to do right now because you can also learn through experiences. He encourages students to exceed intellectually while also achieving their dreams elsewhere whether they are to travel the world or become the class valedictorian. He let's me know that it's okay to be emotional and maybe I won't get into the college of my dreams but it's their loss because it's hard to prove your existence in a 500 word paper.

    Course highlights:

    I learned that writing an essay is a hard job but as long as you can prove your point and keep the reader engaged then you'll be fine. He taught me that an on demand essay is a lot like life, you just have to go for it before time is out and maybe you spell 8 words wrong but as long as you can get your point across then you'll be just fine. Optional assignments are my highlights though. Each week we get to turn in anything for 10 points. It could be a painting or a list of songs you should listen to with your best friend but no matter what it was, you got your 10 points.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Rewrite everything. It'll take time and you'll look at your essay and think there's no way to make it better but you can always do better and it will only make you a better writer and a more disciplined student.
