    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Taking English 1A with Jessica Green was really worth it. She was very helpful and caring when it came to her students. She was very understanding when other life situations came up and she was very flexable about class assignments. She picks really great books and articles that are really worth reading and I am not a big fan of what professors usually make us read, but Jessica knows how to pick out some amazing books. Her essay prompts are the best because she has you write about topics that we are really passionate about. English is not for everyone, but Jessica really made our whole entire class enjoy the good things about English.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights of this course was reading the book The Distance Between Us. It was a beautiful read and I am really glad she had us read it because it was such an eye opener. The other highlight of this class was when we got to write letters to middle schoolers and telling them about our college experience and why it is worth to go to college. I really did enjoy everything about this course.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    My advice is to really take advantage of the extra credit she offers and the writing lab she sets aside for her students. It is really worth going to those labs because she is very helpful with your essays.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I loved taking english 1A. I hadn't really done a lot of english work past my junior year in high school so this course was a very good refresher to english and writing. By taking this course it also introduced me to the writing center that the school offers. The combination of these two things really strengthened my writing and boosted my confidence in english.

    Course highlights:

    After taking this course I felt as though I knew how to write various papers to their fullest extent. For example, before taking this course I had never really been taught how to cite a source and after taking this course I was able to correctly sources my sources.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    If you're planning in taking this course be sure to study the MLA rules. Besides that just do your work and ask questions. Always bring two copies of your paper in case you want to have your own notes because they papers were often collected to be reviewed.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I loved the class, teacher made it fun so the hard work didn't feel so rough, he was able to show us that learning isn't and doesn't have to be something that makes your eyes roll or bores you to death.

    Course highlights:

    The way that the teacher was able to bring in every day events and make them somehow connected to what we were learning about. Also the humor was fun and showed the students that teachers are to be seen as humans too.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Go into the class with an open mind and the teacher will blow you away, the things i learned were not just for that class, but more over life lessons.
