    | Would not recommend.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend a different teacher if possible. Professor Bartkovich is a very good teacher and knows her content well. This class is a little different than other English classes. She teaches different materials that you will need to study harder for. I went to the tutors at the school and they were unsure of what she was asking for in assignments. If you take this class be sure to stay after and visit office hours frequently.

    Course highlights:

    This is an English class so you learn a lot about research and how to write papers. One main thing that I learned from her class is how to conduct research and making sure the website you use is legit and has unbiased information.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Go to office hours and stay after class when given an assignment. The tutors were unfamiliar with the content that this professor taught therefore they were not that much help. She also does not explain the directions of the assignment well so you should ask questions and be sure of your work before you turn it in.

    | Would highly recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    If you are a person who loves to read then I would highly recommend this course to you. In this course, reading makes up about 80% of the work that is completed. The reading that was covered varied throughout the semester and it consisted of short stories, plays, and poems. Literary analysis is also a major part of this course. Going in depth on the different works that were being read kept this course from being boring and continued to engage the students. Another aspect of this course that I enjoyed was being able to complete a successful research paper. This class is very helpful if a person is looking to strengthen their research skills.

    Course highlights:

    My professor divided our class semester up into different sections. At the beginning of the semester, we started off analyzing various short stories. To analyze these stories, we were split up into what we called our "literary groups". Our groups would collectively analyze the story we were currently reading and this allowed us to go further in depth to what we were reading. I found that breaking up into these groups was a wonderful idea because it granted us all the opportunity to share the different perspectives we had on the story. A few of my favorite short stories we read during this class were: "Sweat" by Zora Neale Hurston and "Everyday Use" by Alice Walker.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Some advice that I would give to someone considering this course is that they should have an open mind. If the person considering this course is someone who does not enjoy reading, then taking this class will really change their perspective. This class will allow them to enjoy reading and will help strengthen their literary analysis skills. Also, if the person considering taking this course struggles with writing, this class will be very beneficial to them. After completing a certain number of stories, our professor would allow us to pick a story from the ones that we had already read and we would write an essay about it. We wrote several essays including a short story essay, a drama essay, an essay over a poem, and also a research paper. As you can see, our professor gave us plenty of opportunities to write which allowed the class to improve their writing skills each time we wrote a new essay.
