    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this class because it is not too easy and not too hard. The content of the class is educational and fun. Its a perfect balance. The main thing I liked is the style of public speaking is a lot more comfortable than just presenting to a class. It is more of a discussion between classmates or small groups, the teach is still listening and grading you but it is a lot easier on the nerves.

    Course highlights:

    I gained exposure to mature, real things and different opinions and point of views on them(as stated earlier, alcohol, sex, depression, gender roles, etc). I also learned a lot of vocab, how to write a better paper, grammar and how to create an insightful in class discussion. These tools are extremely helpful, not just for the class but for life in general and college.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    My advice is to never fall behind in the reading. There are weakly tests and sometimes pop quizzes. Additionally, when you do read it is really easy to track evidence which is needed for your essays. The books are really great though, so it shouldn't be too hard. Also, if you need help with an essay do not hesitate to ask a peer or teacher. Their input can change your grade immensely.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    I recommend this course because the entire semester is based on social issues and reform! After reading "The Great Gatsby", which is an excellent book, the class watches documentaries, and you get to do a research paper on a social issue you are passionate about! And finally, you get to read a novel called "Into The Wild", which sparks a lot of controversy. In fact, most of the course is discussing controversy and debating! I love this class and highly recommend it (even though it is a required course).

    Course highlights:

    The highlights of this course was discussing social reform, and doing Philosophical Chairs (an activity that involves debating a point of view over a philosophical topic).

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    Take the notes! Ms. Bravo literally writes everything you need to know on the board. You will ace every test this way.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I cannot express the level of love I had for this class. Not only did i have a brilliant, kind-hearted caring, spunky teacher to make the class so intriguing, this class allows student to free their minds and open up about who they are on a whole new level. I thoroughly enjoyed this class.

    Course highlights:

    My best honorable highlights of this class were my inputs in our open class debates. I truly love expressing my opinion on topics that should matter to every individual. From "is pure pressure a choice or not?", to "should athletes and singers be payed more than teachers?", I thrived in these group discussions.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Do no be afraid to express yourself in front of people. let the imagination and creativity that nests up in your mind free on paper or in class discussions.
