    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    This course taught me so much about what college will be like. I took this course as a high school student and I am a better student because of it. This course really teaches you how to take advantage of resources in writing a credible paper, and how to become a dedicated student. This is especially important when it comes to all the essays you are required to write. Dedication is indeed the key to success in the course.

    Course highlights:

    This course is challenging, especially when taking it as a junior in high school. Honestly, the biggest advice I can give anyone taking this course can be summed up in one word: EFFORT. You can not slack off in this class, especially with the work load you will receive. I learned dedication and how hard work can really pay off. I learned so much in this class that normal high school courses never taught me. I highly recommend this class for anyone wanting to get a head start in the college game.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Again, effort is the key to success, but humility is also petty up there. To pass this class you are going to need to be able to take real criticism on your papers. Part of your grade in this class is actually on making the effort to bring your paper to the Writing Lab to have it critiqued. You can't get down on yourself, however. This will end up making you a better writer, which will in turn get you a better grade in the class. Also, don't forget to have fun with the subject matter. There are a lot of different approaches you can take based on the assignment, and creativity definitely counts.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Professor Russell was a great one on one teacher as well as group teacher. She has showed us we can be successful too as she has just published a book.

    Course highlights:

    I enjoyed getting to know how to write better. I struggled with the basic mechanics of essay writing. Now I feel as though I can confidently put together my ideas as well as the necessary information that is required in an essay.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Use your time wisely and put your best effort forward. It can take time to learn how to and execute a well written paper. I struggled with the basic mechanics of an essay, however, with Professor Russell's guidance you are sure to be successful if you listen and do the work required.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    This class teaches the basics of English. It allows plenty of opportunity to practice different writing styles and find the ones you like and the ones you dislike.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights of this course were that we were allowed to discuss different topics as a class and therefore were able to get different viewpoints on those topics and were able to look at things in a way that we might not have before.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    My advice to students considering this course would be to open your mind. Even if you don't like English or writing, there is always something you can learn that could help even just the way you look at things.
