    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    Hayley martin was a very comapssionate teacher and was always thorough in her expalnations. Her homework load and quiz load was always reasonable as well as her midterms and finals. She was always willing to work on papers with students if they needed help and always made herself available.

    Course highlights:

    I learned a lot about the political system, not only in America but across the world. She also helped me be more precise about my thesis statements and quotes for connections.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    Always annotate during class and do the exercises that she assigns from the book. Also office hours are very crucial, if you feel yourself falling behind go to office hours and ask for help before it's too late!

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I highly recommend taking Professor Fitchett's class because he pushes you as a student and really is great at constructive criticism. He's a great professor, funny and his lessons are always memorable and useful.

    Course highlights:

    I learned that writing isnt about memorizing a formula--its about passion and life experiences that bring life to an essay.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    Always do your homework and give your best effort. Professor F is a university quality professor and it's sad to see his talents go unappreciated at a city college but if you're lucky to have him as a professor you'll see he is just a wonderful person.

    I would definitely recommend this course, this course teaches one to become a better writer, to be an analytical thinker and to not be shy when expressing ideas.

    Course highlights:

    I became better at witting essays, better at writing good assertions, and this course also helped me be a more sociable individual.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Who ever decides to take this course, should go into class motivated ready to learn, and ready to share ideas, this will make class more enjoyable.
