    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This course is very "hands on" in the terms of discussing opinions about the pieces we read and/or the opinions we have in general. Mrs. Williams provided us with all the deadlines and upcoming assignments the first day of school in the syllabus, so we are aware of what we should do. Out of all of my English courses, I would say this is the most liberating class as far as keeping my attention and it has allowed me to think freely.

    Course highlights:

    During the course, we participated in a "Writing Marathon". Mrs. Williams created an activity in which she sent us outside of the school and write. In small groups, we spent around ten minutes at every station writing about anything that came to mind and shared it with the group. This activity taught me that you can have fun writing and inspiration is everywhere. The activity taught me that sometimes you have to change up your routine and try new things to get a great product.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    The best advice I could give someone would be to stay on top of your assignments. Do the assignments as soon as possible, meaning don't wait until the night that it's due to begin working on it, because it's going to take longer than you expect. I recommend having peers edit/revise your essays outside, so you can have a great paper, because you will not do any peer editing in the class. Also, don't forget to communicate with Mrs. Williams, she will edit your paper before it's suppose to be due and she can help you think of more ideas for your assignments.
