    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    The ability to learn from notes and to utilize your knowledge for projects.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    There's so much information that has accumulated from history. Being able to root what countries have built off of, gives a better understanding as to why the world functions the way it does in modern times.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights of this class were the different wars that America was involved in during present times, who we allied with and who we wished to defeat. It provides mental images of the conditions that American soldiers faced and explained how we were so successful in the wars we were presented with.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    My greatest advice is to study the material instead of cramming it. This way you can reference back to memory instead of flipping through notes to find one answer.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    This class taught me that I can do anything that people have said I was not good at. I always had english teachers who never helped me out and gave me bad grades but this college english teacher showed me a whole new perspective and I passed my essays with A's and B's.

    Course highlights:

    I learned how to write and sound educated. I learned how to cite and even use MLA format because it was something I never new how to do. This teacher taught me how to look at books a whole different way. As a class we all dissected Albert Camus books and journals. We tried to figure out what Camus was really trying to say, the meaning of the words. At the end of every other book/journal we each had to write 10 page essay on whether or not the reading was absurd/unethical or not. To back up what we wrote we used Camus scholar journals which was scholars who had written essays on the different books and tried to explain their view of what Albert Camus was writing.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    I would say to really pay attention to how he dissects the class. He seems intimidating but he's really trying to teach students what its all about. He offers peer review days that are optional, I went to every one. His feed back really worked because he showed what we could do to make our essay stronger and caught our mistakes. Going to the peer review days raised my essay grade because I really understood what he was looking for and I learned how to write.
