    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Ms. French is a wonderful instructor who made learning the material of this course both enjoyable and educational. The course allowed me to hone my informational and creative writing skills. I have found this useful in college application processes.

    Course highlights:

    At the end of the semester, we put together a portfolio showcasing our work. In my mind, this went above and beyond essay writing as it taught us to present our work in a concise, but creative way.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    Be creative and come up with a good idea from the beginning to carry you through the rest of the projects.

    Course Overview:

    He was very knowledgeable in the course and was willing to work with any students that needed help. I was one of those students. I didn't turn anything in but realized failing that class was going to seriously hurt my chances of pursuing the career I had set forth. I contacted him for help and he helped my complete every assignment before the end of term. I can't thank him enough for the help I received.

    Course highlights:

    I learned that I need to complete my assignments on time. I also learned a lot about myself while writing all the essays that were assigned.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Complete the assignments when they're assigned. You don't need the stress in completing everything the last couple weeks.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this class. This class is quite different in a sense of student interactions. The class requires that you participate in discussions like most classes, however there is elements on student opinions.

    Course highlights:

    I learned a lot through this class but one of the elements that really stuck out to me was how to write a thesis statement. In high school I was always required to write papers, however I never understood how to write a proper thesis. With this class I was able to properly understand how to construct one properly.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    One tip I would give is to use as many resources as possible. There was one great resource I enjoyed in particular, an application called Grammarly. It aided in not only spelling but grammatical errors and more.
