    I would not recommend this class if you were not required to take it but another reason would be that there are not many English related careers unless you decide to become a teacher of some kind.

    Course highlights:

    I learn how to analyze text and understand deep and difficult concepts of human nature and of literature.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Write the essays with confidence. Everyone will write a terrible essay from time to time no matter how good they are.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I recommend this course because it will immensely improve your writing abilities and even help you to develop an effective personal writing style. It does this by presenting you with an array of rhetorical devices that help to strengthen any essay, whether it is argumentative or synthesis. In addition to writing, this course also includes more challenging pieces of literature that will require you to really think about the materials that you are presented. Overall, I would say that this course is very helpful and will groom and prosper your writing skills for college.

    Course highlights:

    The main focus of this course is literature analysis and essay development. It will introduce rhetorical devices and their proper uses, which you will be told to identify in pieces as well as utilize in your own essays. I found that this course really helped to strengthen my writing abilities because it drilled the rhetorical devices into my mind. This course shows you how to effectively utilize diction to obtain the desired mood of your writings and reactions of the readers.

    Hours per week:

    12+ hours

    Advice for students:

    To succeed in this course, you need to be prepared to do quite a bit of writing, reading, and essay analysis. It will not be a course that you can just coast through without putting in any effort; it will require you to pay attention, participate, actively listen in class, and complete any and all assigned work.
