    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    First off, Ms. Freed is an amazing teacher - if you need help with something, whether it's the latest paper she assigned, a college application, or your taxes, she will always help you. She taught 7/7 classes, helped out with clubs, was the department chair, taught college classes, and STILL was available for her students. The course was great too, because the material was intriguing. The literature books were not all classics that everybody has heard of a million times - they were new and different than I had expected to read. The course goes by so fast because the work assigned is given to you way in advance because it's such an organized class - you always know what you're going to be doing next.

    Course highlights:

    I learned a lot about the style authors use to write. We read one book, a memoir, in which the author used no quotation marks when expressing dialogue. At first, I hated that and hated the book because I couldn't understand it - but then, as I read it more and more I began to understand that was the author's style, and I began to appreciate why he did it. Literature, as a course, gave so much more freedom to analyzing writing that no other English course I'd taken did.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Pay attention in class! Everything you need to know will be said in class, probably multiple times. If you ever don't understand something, Freed will explain. She literally answers emails instantly and is almost always in her classroom.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Taking dual enrollment composition was an incredible experience for me. I was able to improve my writing and I learned to do college quality research papers as well as regular papers. My vocabulary also increased and I dropped the habit of being redundant. I didn't have to worry about the minimum word count since I had a lot to write about.

    Course highlights:

    The highlight of this course was definitely the research paper. Although it was scary at first, the teacher was amazing at helping you if you had a draft. At sat down with her around four times and without her feedback I would have been lost.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Be responsible, don't leave anything until the last minute. BRING YOUR DRAFTS WHEN SHE ASKS YOU TO!!!! And do not be afraid to ask her questions. Mrs. V would rather have an annoying person asking a lot (like me) than nobody asking at all and then doing everything wrong.
