    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.
