    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This class is a great way to learn to love writing, if you don't already. All of the literature is very interesting, as this is a gothic themed classes, and really helps you dive into the world of critical thinking.

    Course highlights:

    Lovell gives great insight and advice which really helped me grow as a writer and critical thinker. The class grows steadily in difficulty so that you aren't left behind and each paper helps prepare you for the next one.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Proof read! It really helps you a lot. Or get someone else to read your papers before you submit them. They might catch something you didn't see.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Mattson is very helpful and insightful when it comes to developing your writing skills in an English class. She also welcomes discussions and gives very clear lectures, which is helpful when it comes time to prepare for quizzes and papers.

    Course highlights:

    She helps you learn how to cut down an entire essay to the bare minimum and get directly to the point, which is a much harder skill to learn than how to write a lengthy paper. After that she helps you learn how to use "lenses" to view how things were written by others. This helps to take in text from another perspective and analyze it in that way as well.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Stay on top of the reading and be prepared for quizzes on it. It can be tedious at times but it is very helpful to read the amount she gives you per class; it never takes as long as it seems it might. Asking Mattson for help after class or having her look at your papers can be very helpful as well if you ever hit a wall when writing or are not sure how to fix something.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Pelle had interesting topics and reading materials that were entertaining and relevant to today. We focused on science fiction reading materials such as "Frankenstein", "Brave New World", and "Ghost in the Shell". He also put particular focus on the female representation in the subjects, which was cool since it's usually difficult to find positive female representation in older literature.

    Course highlights:

    Pelle is overall a cool teacher. He's not stuck in one viewpoint and really does take the effort to consider how his students see the topic. I also learned how Sci-Fi is not just nerdy, but scientific, historical, AND nerdy. After seeing the origin of the genre, I feel a new appreciation that I don't think I would have gotten from my previous interest in it.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    The biggest tip I can offer is to talk to the professor after class with questions you have prepared beforehand. By taking the time to talk to them and knowing what to ask, I was able to get feedback on my paper to make it more concise and understandable. Pelle, and most teachers for that matter, wants you to succeed and is more than willing to take the time to help. The final paper is a lot of work and is a fair portion of your final grade, but it is worked on in sections from the middle of the term to the end, so it is not super stressful if you don't put it off. The topic of the paper when I took the class was anything that was relevant or talked about in class, so I would recommend making a list of what topics you find interesting that are talked about in class. Go with the subject you are most interested in and then research the basics of it so you can see if it's what you want to write about. And finally, read Sparknotes or summaries along with the books if you're having a difficult time understanding it. Books like Frankenstein have old, formal language in it that could make it easy to miss a plot point because of the subtlety of the action. It can be helpful to read the summaries just to make sure that you understand the plot of the story so far.
