    | No strong feelings either way.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    This course is very beneficial for learning how to write analyses correctly and well, as well as peer reviewing in a constructive manner. If you did not have a good experience in learning to write this way in high school, it is an awesome learning experience, but if you have already taken a class that was constructive to writing analyses, this class is very easy and somewhat repetitive of a high school English class.

    Course highlights:

    This course is a fantastic refresher for how to write a well constructed paper on analyzing a text.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    There are no exams in this course, so there isn't much to study. Just make sure you pay attention in class so you have enough information and instruction on how to write the paper to cover the prompt.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I learned a lot from this class. Though it isn't the most interesting subject, you get a lot of content and really learn to improve your writing and analyzing skills. There was great feedback from the teacher and diverse projects that helped in all areas of writing. There were awesome reading involved along with discussion, papers, research and presentations.

    Course highlights:

    I was able to read The Outliers throughout the course and it was packed with helpful information. Also, the discussions helped me think outside of the box and I learned to find details I wouldn't have looked for before. The papers also challenged me and got lots of feedback to improve. There were many little projects throughout the course that involved society today which was really fun.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    If taking this course, expect a lot of reading and papers. But have an open mind and try to be a part of the class and discussions. Put in your best effort in every assignment cause you'll get really good feedback and improve.
