    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this class mostly because it's required for all degrees but this course is a staple and a building block for all other classes. My teacher encouraged us to engage our brains in critical thinking. This helped me in my personal life and in my job.

    Course highlights:

    I learned the structure of an essay, thesis statements and critical ideas. Not just your basic writing but creative writing that encourages the reader into critical thinking while you had to use your critical thinking skills to construct the essay. We also learned the skills of observing.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    If you find that you are struggling, like myself, I encourage you to work closely with your teacher so that you can better understand the coursework. If there are any resources that the school provides, take advantage of those. I did and it raised my grade by a whole letter just because I was willing to put in some extra effort.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    This a great introductory to college writing! We used a comic book formatted writing guide instead of a textbook, which matches the professor's style of emphasizing ideas over grammatical perfection.

    Course highlights:

    I gained a better ability to include sentence variety in my writing. I also identified that I was making a lot of common grammar errors such as comma splices.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Do any homework Professor Wortman assigns on time. She is easy to work with if something serious prevents you from being able to turn in work on time, but she also keeps firm control of the classroom because of the younger age of many of the students. Also try to make it to every class if possible.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would highly recommend this course because it is a great structure to engage with the material and gain new literary skills.

    Course highlights:

    I loved this class! The professor gave strong feedback as well as encouragement. This class helps you to grow as a reader and writer. The structure of the class helps you to engage with the material through analysis and discussions. This class has assignments that are well laid out but still have freedom to add personal style. The best part about this class is that it feels like a community.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    You will get out of this course what you put into it. If you go into it with the mindset of "just get it done", that's all you'll get out of it. I recommend going into it with the mindset of an opportunity to build onto literary skills with a community of scholars. This is the way to get the most out of the course.
