    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This English class was intense and engaging. We read stories that induced us to critically think about hidden symbols, we explored rare language art devices, and we learned about different literary periods. The passages varied from poems to historical fiction and it was awesome and enlightening to experience.

    Course highlights:

    I distinctly learned about metaphysical poets and their poetry. Metaphysical poetry is a literary period (specifically 17th century in Britian) where writers wrote stories that commonly included devices such as wit, expressive feeling, and dramatic language. Some poets include Samuel Johnson, George Herbert, and John Donne.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    This class includes intense analyzing and extensive research. You cannot pass the class by giving simplistic answers and mediocre work, you must critically think and write like a scholar. If you put in effort and do all the work you will get an 'A'.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Personally, I feel as though teachers make or break the class because the subject is going to be the same regardless. So I would definitely recommend this course because of professor Misantone, herself. She was a little strict, but there's nothing wrong with tough love! However,she was not only helpful, but she actually cared about your work and really put her back into helping her students out. She also believed in reward from good behavior, participation, and good grades. Professor Misantone loved my class so much that she even waived our final exam and gave us all passing grades!

    Course highlights:

    Some of the highlights of this course were definitely the reading material. Unlike English composition 1 (ENC1101), this course focused on literature. I was able to be exposed to new books, such as "The Bluest Eye" by Toni Morrisson, which focused on racialized beauty and the effects of racism, and new types of literature, including poetry by Edgar Allen Poe. I learned that English isn't just about writing essays, it's about understanding the meaning and the purpose of other authors and being able to interpret less apparent meanings.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Some advice that I would want student's to know as they enter this class would definitely be to ask questions and to read and reread the material given. Don't be embarrassed to question the logic and the meaning behind other people's writing and if you don't quite understand the material, it's okay to read it over and over again until you fully comprehend. Also, if you have an opinion, keep in mind that others have opinions as well. Don't shut your mind out to only one way of thinking, broaden your horizons.
