    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I would definitely recommend this course to those who are hardworking and willing to do a lot of extra work to become a better writer. Ms. Stelmok makes sure everyone stays on task and although the class is conveniently 50 minutes long, 3x a week, it is a lot of hard work.

    Course highlights:

    The highlight of this course for me was definitely writing my first 10 page paper! I never thought in my high school career that I would be able to write that many pages about one topic but I did and also managed to write a 5 page annotated bibliography, 3 page reflection and a 1 page proposal as well. It was really difficult but I am so proud to have completed it.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    My advice is to put in the extra effort. A lot of kids showed up late, didn't turn assignments in on time, showed up under the influence and just did not care. The professor is not as willing to help students who don't at least make an effort. I recommend talking to the professor and seeking assistance during office hours to help with writing papers. Lastly, I advise students to start doing homework right after the class ends because it is best not to procrastinate.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Dr. Goode's comp course is fantastic! She is such a great professor who really cares about her students. This course was also themed around sustainability and had a large final project, so students were writing for a purpose and not just writing to write.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights of this course were learning so much about sustainability and having an opportunity to work towards a goal as a final course project and not just study to pass a cumulative final. The course had a welcoming, unconventional, and cooperative classroom setting that allowed students to thrive.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    This is definitely the course for you if you want an interesting spin on a typical composition class. That being said, you must have an interest in or be open to learning about sustainability in order to successfully pass this course. The classroom atmosphere was my favorite out of my 5 fall classes and definitely one I looked forward too. This is also a great networking class for those interested in sustainability or environmental sciences as you will be put before many members of the faculty in those departments by the end of the final project and this will get your name out there. In short: few books, little work outside of class, awesome professor, and great for networking.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This course is designed to create the type of environment where students are actively working with their peers to discuss current life situations, make evaluations, read & write pertinent information and edit others work.

    Course highlights:

    I feel that I not only learned how to be a better writer but I also developed a manner in which I can help my peers by editing their work so that they do not feel embarrassed and take the criticism in a positive manner.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Be ready to learn, write and participate.
