    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I learned a wide variety of skills in this course, and thus became a MUCH better writer. Ms. Klein teaches a variety of ways to utilize literary devices and techniques that make your writing blossom from that of someone who is clearly in high school, to a scholar.

    Course highlights:

    Highlights of this course definitely included all of the essays we wrote all the time. Although they were the bane of our existence, they really did improve how fast we could write and how intellectual sounding we could make our writing.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Don't wait until 11:59 to submit things online, sometimes it won't go through and she can totally see that you waited till the last second. Just don't procrastinate in general, your grade will thank you.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    There are great teachers in Clairemont who show a lot of effort. Many of whom are devoted to helping you succeed. Some of which may seem strict, lazy, or even rude. But the truth is, nobody's perfect--and at Clairemont, we REALLY recognize that. So this course shows not just the benefit of the class, but also of knowing the teacher as well.

    Course highlights:

    I learned a lot about rhetorical strategies, but the teacher I had also taught us a lot about life. She told us of all the controversies in the world and tried to give us new perspective on certain subjects like feminism, sexualized advertisements, the difference between empathy and sympathy, just overall a lot of subjects. It was also very fun being in this course because our teacher had a lot of interesting methods of running the class... But it was a great experience and I enjoyed being a part of it.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    NEVER TYPE THE ASSIGNMENT THE DAY BEFORE THE ASSIGNMENT IS DUE! Doing so will never assist you in any way. If you are smart then take a swing at it, but most of the time, if not all the time, the grade will end up being lower than you might have expected. I am not saying that the assignments given are difficult to do because a lot of times they are easy enough to finish in one night... It's just never a good idea. Try finishing it days before the due date, then the day before it is actually due just finalize it. Make last minute changes if need be. Just don't always rely on your ability to get it done in an hour then turn it in and get a decent grade. That's not how it works.
