    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I recommend this course because it is worth it! It was a dual-credit course for JJC (Joliet Junior College); therefore, we received college credits. The credits transferred to my transcripts at the University of Illinois at Chicago and I didn't have to take freshman year English semester 1. The course is easy and worth taking your senior year instead of freshman year at college because there is already so much other harder-level classes that you have to focus on, so getting one out the way early is smart.

    Course highlights:

    English 101 was a writing and self-developing course. This class helped me improve my writing, reading, and speaking skills extremely. We wrote so many papers that having to write papers was not as difficult as before. Having to read articles was not that fun for this course, but it improves your vocabulary and understanding skills. The course requires students to present in front of their classmates, which led to students being more comfortable speaking in front of audiences.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    I advice students to be on top of their agenda with this course because you cannot miss due dates. Students must learn how to manage their time wisely, so they aren't stuck doing the assignment one day before the turn in date. Also, I recommend to express yourself in your papers thoroughly and doing presentations are really not all that bad because everyone is going through it!

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    The course itself is very difficult. However, my writing was greatly improved, and I was able to get my college language and composition classes out of the way. Mrs. McConnell is a great teacher.

    Course highlights:

    The highlight of this course was the argument paper at the end of the semester. It helped me learn how to write a paper that takes a stance and uses many different research resources.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Do as much work as you can in class and you won't have much homework
