    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I recommend this course as a starting point in English for freshmen students or people wanting to start from the basics. I specifically recommend Mrs. Servais because of her teaching style. For someone coming to the JC who hasn't had recent English classes, Mrs. Servais' class is just the sort of welcoming environment you need. You'll start at the basics of literature, writing skills and critical thinking skills, which is great for a first English class.

    Course highlights:

    As a first generation student I was pretty overwhelmed with coming to the JC - but this class helped expand the way I learned things. Mrs. Servais gets you comfortable with the class before diving into the assignments and major essays, so it's not so intense once the homework is assigned. As a student in her class for my first ever semester I was able to increase my critical thinking skills, fix my writing skills (for essays and even in-class journal entries), and even perfect my people skills. You learn more than just how to read and write - you learn how to take what you're reading and apply it to the world around you.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    You really have to be willing to expand in the way you think about things. The ability to stretch literal and metaphorical limitations is the exact ability you need to "survive" this class. ????

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course because this class prepares you well for English 1A and you can have some fun learning about literature.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights of this course was reading the novel The Pearl and interpreting the book with my classmates. I learned that a last name is used in formal setting and to manage clauses.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    You need to do some in depth reading on a few books, and really focus on those essays to get the best grade possible. The essays are the majority of the grade so you need to try your best on the essay.
