    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I recommend this course because it is important to know about the history and stories that these wonderful people have wrote for us to still be able to read today. In my opinion, its like a two in one deal, you learn about the history of the Americans who wrote these short stories and poems, while improving in your reading and writing skills.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights of this course will definitely be me improving on my vocabulary, my writing skills, and being able to understand poems. Vocabulary throughout these lessons were very new and different because the stories were from the 18th ,19th, and early 20th centuries. My writing skills improved because I learned what writing format is best for whatever essay or prompt i am given. Before I took this course I normally had a hard time understanding a poem after reading it, but the way the book was set up for me broke down exactly where it can get confusing. Then throughout the course I caught on rather quickly than before.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    The advice i would give to students considering this course is always be prepared to read, highlight important parts of the text, and highlight difficult words. American writers of our history have different but similar ways of writing compared to now in the 21st century. Also be prepared to learn about the people who wrote these poems and short stories. There is always a reason unto why someone writes a story, whether it is on their past experiences, or something they just thought of on the top of their head. What you need to succeed in this class is your brain. Overall it is a easy course.
