    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This class has given me insight on how reading classic literature strengthens your writing. As well as how you are your own teacher and the instructor is there to help you along the way to answer any questions you may have.

    Course highlights:

    One highlight would have to be when we started discussing free speech on college campuses and whether it should be limited. It was not an easy discussion because there were many point of views on this subject matter. We had a couple of socratic seminars on this subject and my own view point on the matter changed. At the end we had to write an synthesis essay from a reader response we received. That essay challenged me technically and personally because the topic of free speech didn't come up in my daily life. I had to critically think and doing so I learned that I'm a full believer of having speech not limited on college campuses. But overall I learned you need to have an open mind when you discuss controversial topics because it's easy to tune out someones beliefs and ideas.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    Thoroughly listen to your classmates views and don't be judgmental but consider their view points and challenge their ideas. Read the books that were provided and read them thoroughly, they may not seem like interesting books but they may surprise you.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this class because Mr. Dance is one of the nicest teachers I have ever met, rarely assigns homework yet makes the class really interesting, engaging, relevant and informative. He relates the concepts we learn to literature, movies, past and present events, and allows us to collaborate with groups and voice our opinions to the entire class rather than just doing busy work on our own.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights of this course were reading articles about free speech and hate speech on college campuses and discussing how to solve this issues by either limiting free speech or unrestricting it, read works of Plato and debated on what it means to be truly Socratic and what should be important to us in our education, and read the Crucible then talked about how freedom and order play an important role in our world and can make people paranoid. We also learned how to write argumentative essays and rhetoric analysis essays, learning about rhetorical strategies such as ethos, pathos, logos, tone, mood, and how to analyze these strategies.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    In order to succeed in this course, you need to be collaborative with students in your class and be willing to share your opinions in front of the class and with the people you are working with in order to further the discussion and further everyone's learning. To be successful on essays and writing assignments, always feel free to go into Mr. Dance's classroom and work with him because he will tell you exactly what you are doing wrong and is incredibly helpful. However, because there are so little assignments going into the gradebook, do not slack off and put in your hardest effort even though this class seems so easy.
