    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I recommend English 101 with Nancy Miller because she is an incredible teacher and you will grow so much in her class. Your writing skills will be strengthened, more crisp, and advanced. Since taking her class, i have become a much better writer and my vocab has expanded significantly.

    Course highlights:

    Within this course you will read impactful deep stories and essays such as Plato's Allegory of the Cave. I believe that is the name of this essay, but you will read such strong stories such as his and immediately gain a new perspective on life. Throughout the quarter you will have writing groups before a big essay is due. So a week in advance you will get in your writing groups and trade essays and discuss what needs improvement or what was written beautifully. These writing groups have developed the way I write essays now and I have become much thorough when revising essays let alone mine. So this will strengthen you a lot.

    Hours per week:

    12+ hours

    Advice for students:

    To future students who are looking at this course be prepared to read! I spent about 2 to 3 hours every night reading essays that were due. So if you like reading this class is perfect for you. Also be prepared to step outside your comfort zone and don't be afraid to speak up on a specific topic that you are passionate about. That will only help you grow.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course because it is a fascinating subject to go over about. Especially having Professor Byrd as your teacher, she will give you her full honesty and will do whatever it takes for you to improve on what ever you need to do better on.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights for this course was the workshops that were done in this course. The workshops were very useful and could help others in the future. For example, there would be a peer review workshop where students, including the professor, would look over a work that he or she did and look for a better way to improve the look of that paper.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    I would study ahead of the class because life might get in the way. I would always take every assignment like a test because it is very important to keep your grade as high as possible.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    She is an amazing teacher, and pushed me to become a better writer. I truly enjoyed this course, and found the material to be quite interesting. Finishing this course with a 95 and a referral for tutoring.

    Course highlights:

    The course ask you to stay confused and thinking about each aspect of the material. This was a challenge I accepted, but found to be one of the most memorable experiences in my educational life.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Open your mind and follow this professor as she leads you down a path of discovery and adventure. Be ready for the twist and turns she will ask you to take through your brain. Moat of all you must be yourself and have a voice.
