    | Would highly recommend.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course because Dr. Robison genuinely cares about preparing you for college, but thats because he used to be a college professor.

    Course highlights:

    I honestly learned how to analyze poems, fiction pieces, and really any other type of prose. I also got to sharpen my essay skills because he was a very tough grader.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    If you don't do the work, you will not get a good grade. You cannot be lazy in this class, you must do every assignment.

    | Would recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This course would be highly recommended from my perspective. This is because throughout the course, you read books that reflect on Americas past historical events such as, "The Crucible" representing the Salem Witch Trials or "The Great Gatsby" which represents the Great Depression and era of jazz music.

    Course highlights:

    While taking this course I learned that you can learn quite a bit about the events of past times from reading novels written in that time period. For example, "The Crucible" illustrates quite well the thoughts and effects that the Salem Witch Trials had in society at that period of time. These illustrations show the belief of witchcraft and how quick society is to jump to conclusions without fully putting full research into a situation as well as its possible causes.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    It's recommend highly that you visualize the events that take place in the books you read. Place yourself in the shoes of the characters as you read to fully indulge yourself in the reading and it's guaranteed you will learn more from the reading.

    | No strong feelings either way.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    I would not recommend it because there is no preparation ahead of time by Dr. Story. She makes up what we are going to do each day in class when she arrives.

    Course highlights:

    I learned how to read literature like a professor. That is about all. I learned that every trip is a quest. There is a reason for every trip in a work of literature.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    You need to do the work that she assigns if she assigns any. I know that she always doesn't take it up, but it will prepare you for her random quizzes over books you haven't even discussed in class.
