    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course. It is challenging but teaches good skills in which you can apply to other courses in the future. This professor pushed me to support my ideas and form strong thesis statements.

    Course highlights:

    The biggest highlight for me was learning how to be affirmative and challenge myself in argumentative and thoughtful writing. I loved the literature as well in this class. Take this class if you genuinely want a positive challenge!

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    My advice in considering this course is looking at what you want to get out of writing and learning how to critically think. Do you want to be pushed to reach your full potential and find success in later writing? Take this class.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I highly recommend this course to further indulge yourself in the world of reading, writing, and critical thinking. Many people stop taking English classes after College Composition, but this class goes so much more in depth and challenges you in way that will help you outside the classroom walls.

    Course highlights:

    The main thing I learned from this course is to think critically and to question myself, my writing, and others. When you do that, you open doors to new ideas and perspectives you may not have otherwise. I also further learned how to correctly format essays and compose them in a professional​ manor.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Go to every class if you can. Participation is extremely helpful in your assignments and establishing a better relationship with classmates and the professor. Also, try not to fall behind on work.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Claire is a fantastic teacher and her English 5 class was the best class I've ever taken. She is very interested in engaging her students and having class discussions over important issues in the world. Everything we covered in her class felt extremely important and relevant. Her classroom felt like a safe space and we could discuss everything in a protected environment.

    Course highlights:

    Since this was a critical thinking english course we studied many issues like race and the prison system, gender inequality, the environment and more. With each subject we were expected to do research and then think critically and write about it.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Be prepared to have an open mind and see things from a different perspective. This course is all about seeing things from both sides and really delving deep into each issue to get a thorough whole picture. There is also a lot of writing so one must give oneself time to write and do research. If you write an early enough draft she will review your paper and give you feedback before it is due, which is extremely helpful and I would highly recommend it.
