    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course because it provides you with great much information on what seems simple such as writing a summary. I have learned about so many grammatical errors I have made prior to this class that I was not taught. You feel more confident about writing and even reading with this class and are able to point out literary references from texts.

    Course highlights:

    I learned how to structure a summary, analyze a paper as well as do a microtheme. Typing a summary may seem simple but you have to write the intro which should only contain the authors claim, credibility/publishing info, and a general topic of what the story is about. More highlights of this course was learning about different methods to use when constructing a paper. I feel more knowledgeable about how to write certain papers as well as more confident.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    In order to succeed, time managemant is a big thing. I was given a calendar of events in which stuff would be due. It's better to start looking at the material ahead of time so you're not trying to piece it all together at the last minute. Also, go into the class open-minded and definetly don't be afraid to ask questions, or try new things.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    Although Mrs. Manningham is a difficult teacher, she prepares you for college very well and treats you as a college student so that we get used to being held to a higher standard.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights were seeing how much I could improve in my writing, and I learned that being open-minded is essential for writing papers.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    Proofread and have others look over your papers to know you're writing coherently.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I was extremely hesitant to take this class because of rumors that it was difficult. The rumors proved to be true, but it was by far the best class I've taken. W131 expanded my English skills and comprehension. This class allowed me to be creative in my writing and also get feedback from the teacher in order to improve my writing. Although I struggled occasionally throughout the class, the teacher was always there to help me through it and explain how to improve my writing.

    Course highlights:

    This course expanded my knowledge of the English language. Before taking this class, I did not know how to write a thesis statement. I now know how to not only write a thesis, but also write multiple types of papers that I had not known existed before this course. Thanks to W131, I received an A on my first written communications essay in college and am considered English as a minor.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Never be afraid to ask for help! The teacher is more than willing to assist you, but you must reach out to her first. Spend time on your papers and put your thoughts into words, because that is what will get the best grade. Do not be discouraged if you receive a poor grade in the first paper or two; it's all a part of the learning process. If you put maximum effort into each assignment, it will be reflected by your grade.
