    | Would recommend.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course because Professor Sorensen is an amazing teacher. He is focused on teaching students and making sure they understand the information rather than handing out essays and lecturing non stop.

    Course highlights:

    I learned how to properly analyze works of literature and how to respond in an educated mannor.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Show up to class and do the work assigned, as long as he see's that you are putting effort into your work he will be leinant.

    | Would highly recommend.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    ENGLISH 1105 Composition is an introduction to composition and literature. The course revolves around building reading, analyzing, and writing skill, rather than studying specific literature. I personally enjoyed this class with professor Spignesi because he does not necessarily abide by the new teaching style. He believes in his own form of teaching, which is effective. He is very accommodating and extremely considerate. He's an amazing teacher! The course, at least at the University of New Haven, does not require much reading at all (which I particularly enjoyed since I am more of a math person). At most a handful of short articles where used to test the skills you are trying to develop. One thing I do wish I was more prepared for is the work load. The work was not overwhelming, but the papers are lengthy. Typically, a four to five page paper every two to three weeks.

    Course highlights:

    I developed analytical skills and how to interpret different pieces in a multitude of ways. We analyzed cartoons, short stories, film, essays etc. My professor incorporated history and made the class very interesting. We also learned vocabulary and how to present our own research properly. Overall a great class.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Be ready to write and be open to suggestion. This class will make you think, but you will still have fun! most of the pieces I was presented with was very interesting and relevant to what was happening in the world today.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I loved taking this class! Professor Fitzgerald is so flexible with her syllabus and would fix anything to what the class wants to do.

    Course highlights:

    I learned a lot of current events such as the arrest of Mohammed, a child who built a clock for school and authorities thought it was a bomb.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Advice i would give to other students is to participate and do the homework the professor gives and you will do great in the course.
