    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I recommend this course because it is very fun, but also eye-opening. After taking this course, I was able to analyze films in a way I had never done before.

    Course highlights:

    Watching one episode of a TV show a week was always exciting, and it's hard to not like watching a new movie almost every week. While it may seem like this is a blow-off class, it's really the opposite because it requires you to think about movies in a way you probably haven't before. I learned so many techniques that directors use and what influence on the audience those techniques have. I learned to analyze films in a new way and I now have a greater appreciation.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    To succeed in this class, you shouldn't miss class often because you have to be there when the class goes over important moments in a movie or show. You can't go into this class thinking it will be easy and you won't have to do any work.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Mr. Clark does a fantastic job teaching this course. Not only does he teach the basics of tenth grade English, he also teaches things that will be useful in college and in the business world with things like How to prepare for a job interview and How to correctly write an analytical paper.

    Course highlights:

    Because Mr. Clark had a passion, he taught us a lot about the working world. Personally, this was very helpful because he showed up how to behave in a job interview and even held mock interviews during free time in class while giving us tips on how to guarantee the job. I used his advice to get my current job, and I can imagine using it again in the future.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    Just take the class seriously. Make sure you do all the projects and write all the papers, because most of your grade is based on them. Also, if at anytime you have a question about an assignment, ask Clark! He is so willing to help you and will let you revise most assignments.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This class not only teaches how film affects us, but also how screens in general have been used to manipulate us for good and bad throughout history.

    Course highlights:

    I learned how camera angles and editing can affect the impact of a scene on the audience. All of this knowledge will have to be used in an essay that you will work on throughout the semester to be turned in at the end.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:
