    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course because I believe it is a great introduction to what an English class would be like in college. It is a great median between a high school English class and a college English class; it is not so hard that the students can't understand anything, but is still enough of a challenge to teach them many new skills that will assist them in the future.

    Course highlights:

    This course is great for learning how to become a better writer such as learning about different writing styles and recognizing writing errors. I also became significantly better at analyzing different pieces of writing by annotating. I learned how important this skill is, and it ultimately made me a better writer. This course also emphasized how editing and having one's own paper edited by a peer can make essays much more fluent.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    This course is most likely a higher intensity class with higher level readings and expectations than previous classes taken, but don't let this be discouraging. I think this course is a great step towards the future. A piece of advice I have is don't be afraid to use your resources and ask for help if you need it, whether it be from the teacher or another student. Also try to help other students when they are confused as well. It will greatly help in the long-run.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Not only is it a college course but also gives the opportunity to be taught by one of the kindest humans you will encounter.

    Course highlights:

    The main thing I've taken away is how much the teacher focuses on what will help you improve as a student, it's very individualized for being a college course.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Manage your time to write an essay you will be proud over and not stressed out over.
