    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    Professor McBride is so awesome! Class is interactive and hands on instead of just sitting and listening to a lecture. She also picks literature that is interesting and well-written and prepares her students well for all papers and exams. I highly recommend her!

    Course highlights:

    I learned so much in this course. Throughout the semester we discussed transcendentalism and naturalism. The overall question that we worked to answer all semester was pretty much "Are you a Naturalist or a Transcendentalist?" By the end of the semester, you learned about two different philosophies and you learned where you stand concerning them!

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    If you want to pass this class, you really need to do every single big assignment like the papers and the peer reviews. You also need to do as much of the reading/journal assignments as possible because that is how she calculates participation points.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course because not a day went by when I didn't feel like I had chosen the most interesting English class. The book we read was spectacular and had me reading ahead of the class.

    Course highlights:

    I have definitely gained discipline from this course. I know that sounds like this wasn't a fun class but it really was. This class taught me the value and the benefits of studying before exams and how great it is to read books that allow the mind to travel into someone else's life.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Study for half an hour to an hour right before your tests; it helps. Also read the book she assigns, not only is it going to help on the quizzes but you get lost in it. Also the hacker book she makes you buy is incredible. That book has everything you need for essays and works cited pages and so much more.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would highly recommend this course because the professor makes the class extremely fun and has a great sense of humor causing the energy in the class to be light and not stressful. Though he is a fun teacher he is still about his work and makes sure all is done.

    Course highlights:

    Some highlights of the course was the professor being very hands on with you and helping with what ever you need. I learned were how to really go into detail in a book and write a comprehensive essay.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Some advice I would give to students considering this course would be to read all the books assigned because you definitely need to.
