    | Would highly recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this class to anyone who wants a teacher who will keep you on your toes. Throughout the duration of this class, I have sharpened my organization skills and weakened my will to complain. She is very straightforward with her work and she wants you to think. If you are looking for a freebie in this class then, you're in the wrong class!

    Course highlights:

    Throughout this course, I learned to think for myself. Between our essay prompts and discussions, you really form your own stance on certain topics and you reject the need to follow others because no one thinks quite like you do. Even though it is rough sometimes, I think when I really got down to focusing and doing my work, I enjoyed that she formulated questions in order to make me think and not look for an answer the easy way.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    My advice to anyone considering this course would be to pay attention. Ms. Harris doesn't like to repeat herself so, listening to everything she says would be in your best interest. Making it a mission to listen and be quiet at the right times will make getting through this course much smoother for you.

    | No strong feelings either way.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I'd recommend this course for the purpose that it is in a sense very challenging. If you focus on what is being taught you will be very successful.

    Course highlights:

    I learned a large number of things, one thing was the fact that I am now able to make text to life connections with large amounts of evidenced-based reasoning.

    Hours per week:

    12+ hours

    Advice for students:

    Time management, and a willingness to study classical literature. Those are essential when taking this course.

    | Would highly recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course because it helps to improve your writing skills, presentation skills, and reading skills through projects, assessments, and extend assignments. During this course, you will be involved in many group discussions about topics that are controversial and will have you thinking. This course will not only help your formulate views on things in society but, it will also help convey your ideas when you display presentations individually and collaboratively with your peers. The topic are challenging and thought provoking so, don't expect anything mundane coming out of this course. However, the course can be difficult when faced with topics that you aren't the strongest in however, your teacher will be more than willing to assist you. This class has a very welcoming atmosphere and encourages students to share their views and struggles in order to improve as a whole.

    Course highlights:

    What I gained from this course is to be okay with how I think and use my strengths to their fullest potential. I was a very reserved student when I enter the class so I was afraid to talk in front of people and share my thoughts. My teacher was very encouraging so I slowly but surely adjusted to the class and how it was being run. I was able to participate in class discussions with ease and even help my classmate when they needed help. Academically, I was more organized and grew less afraid of asking questions so, it was easy for me to understand topics I was confused about and move on. I also learned new vocabulary that increased the quality of my essays and writing assignment as well as writing techniques that would get my message across more effectively which essentially, helped with my writing assignments in other class as well. As for the presentations, I slowly was able to get me out of my comfort zone when it came to talking in front of people so now it's nearly as difficult. Overall, the course was great and I gained a lot skills that I still use now and will mostly use in the future too.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    My advice that I would give for this course is to stay focused. Slacking in this class will be the death of you. The way the class is set up, you have to be on top of your assignments consistently if you don't wish to fall behind. If you don't understand something, ask questions (you'll be sorry if you don't). Be open-minded and always be open to participate because it will help you understand and enjoy the lesson much more than if you decide not to. Be organized and be reasonable; grades are not given, they are earned so, be willing to work and you get the grade you earn.
