    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    The professor is an amazing instructor, but you have to obviously put in the work. Read the book, the readings are NEVER long so plan ahead and get them out of the way. You get little tests to make sure you've done your reading which is based off the five W's (Where, What, Who, When, Why) its that simple. Skim the book write down the info on a note card and read it every once in the while or right before class so you aren't lost during class discussion. You get graded on in class participation so (Try) don't be a bum who never interacts or asks questions; not only that but it will give you favor with the instructor. She is a very social person who loves hearing the thoughts of others. Do the in class work, cuz its so easy! The essays are to the point but allow room for creativity, also if you have trouble doing a paper the professor is always willing to sit one on one in her office and talk with you. The class is accommodating, easy, and to the point... you however just HAVE to do the work and attend class; that's it.

    Course highlights:

    I learned that I'm a better writer than I anticipated. Watched movies. Had a awesome open concept final project and end of semester food and movie day.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Get your books from Chegg they're supper cheep! I rent, but I would suggest buying cuz then you can mark them up and highlight or write notes in them as you go; which is really convenient. Get a planner cuz the readings and essays sneak up on you IF you don't pay attention.

    | No strong feelings either way.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    English is my worst subject. In this class you are not allowed to do any research for any paper you write which is frustrating. I only took this class because I had to.

    Course highlights:

    We learned the basic skills when it comes to writing papers such as paragraph structure and things like that.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Try not to miss class. Make sure you read the textbook

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I had a great professor who was passionate about English and writing and it came across in her teaching. She made a class that I wasn't very strong in very interesting and fun. She was interested in what I had to say as a student and always gave excellent feedback.

    Course highlights:

    I learned how to enjoy English literature and what the important points were to write about. I learned how to approach a subject that I wasn't very interested in and make it enjoyable. I ended up getting in A in the class and enjoying the process of the class very much.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    I would take this class over again without a doubt and I would encourage others to do the same. Learning about English lit and getting the practice to write is an advantage for anyone and applicable with any major. Approach it with an open mind .
