    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I really enjoy English and writing as a subject because I like to be creative. Writing poetry and personal narratives are my favorite types of writing, and English 101 gives several opportunities to do so. Reading short stories and diving deep into materials is something that I have actually always been fond of.

    Course highlights:

    Writing skills are something that are going to be essential once you are in college, and even when you enter the workforce and are aspiring to be offered a job. If you are looking at any career that requires a degree or certificate, you need writing skills. This course was taken online and it gave me so much time to really focus on weekly material. Mrs. Davidson was always there to help if I struggled, as I am sure any professor teaching English would be. It really gave me the chance to enhance my knowledge of writing and I would recommend that to anyone.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    You absolutely have to give time in your day to work on this course. Writing can take a lot of time to prepare. Even after you complete your rough draft, you will need time to look over your mistakes. You also can't slack off or your grade will suffer. This course is really more of a "take it at your own pace" type of learning, but if you do not complete materials when you should, the habit will most likely stick with you for a long time. This will make your grade drop and then you may not enjoy all that the course truly has to offer.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    This class is one of the General Education requirements for all students pursuing an undergraduate program. Mrs. Davidson was a great professor. I took her for other classes as well.

    Course highlights:

    I learned how to complete literary, picture and character analyses.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Do not get behind. Read your assignments and participate in discussion board posts.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This class was very free flowing and was over all just very enjoyable. It had a very good balance of book learning, online discussion, and small assignments in order to help the student to better understand the material in question.

    Course highlights:

    This course gave me a better grasp on correct sentence structure, grammar, and organization when it comes to correctly writing a paper or an essay. We also learned how to correctly cite our sources and correctly put together a bibliography.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    I would highly suggest reading the rubric for this class. This teacher is very relaxed when it comes to somethings, but there is also many things that she does very strictly and to a t. in order to know these things, it is so crucial that you read the rubric. You also need to make sure that you read the required material so you can fully participate in the class discussions.
