    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    She teaches through reading and as for a person who does not have free time to read, this gave me the time of day to sit down and read a short and interesting story.

    Course highlights:

    I learned how to analyze my text and partake in active reading, all the projects and essays she had us do revolved around what you enjoyed while still maintaining boundaries.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Be sure to have sticky notes on you! If you take notes and leave them in pages of books or on your essay, it helps you memorize and retain information for the next upcoming class discussion.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    The course was a fun one; it involved quite a bit of work. It wasn't hard, but more time-consuming. I was a bit sluggish at first, but improved as the semester went on. There was a lot of writing, but I enjoyed doing it. Once I hunkered down, life became easier.

    Course highlights:

    The major highlights for me were writing about cameras in sports, about the use of Wikipedia as an academic source, and about why America is not a nation of vegetarians. (The last one, which was the first major paper, was a hell of a lot of fun.) I learned a lot about different kinds of arguments, and how to use each one. There was a terms list that we had to memorize for the final exam. But I got a solid handle on it, and powered through it. If I could do it, so can you.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    Read the book, take notes--lots of notes--and do the work. Spend about 30-60 minutes a day outside class, if possible, to write essays and do the work. Study the terms list if it's on the final. Do it and life will be fun. Don't do it and you will be miserable for 16 weeks.
