    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    It is a test heavy class. Everything like grammar, sources, etc has to be perfect. You have to be around lots of people a lot more than usual.

    Course highlights:

    I learned about 1. Name Your Sources – he said, she said. When you name sources, you lend credibility to your story and demonstrate your savvy as a reporter. Only use anonymous sources when divulging their identity would put them at risk of retribution or harm. Also to Have Fun – I enrolled in a journalism program because I found writing to be fun. I thought telling stories for the enjoyment of others had to be the best job ever. I still feel the same. Think back to what got you on this track, chances are you wanted to have fun. Have fun with that next story you write, your readers will thank you for it.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    Don't take journalism unless you are good test taker, great writer, and enjoys being around lots of people.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This course is more than a class, it is a genuinely eye-opening experience. It is only a semester long but I wish I was able to take it all year. You are introduced to topic of living as a minority in America, what it means to be a minority and how the eight different groups of minorities we studied are similar and different in their own respects. Coming out of this class, you will look at the world differently; even after the first class your arsenal of knowledge will expand greatly.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights of this course were learning about the eight different minority groups this class covered: Hispanic Americans, Arab Americans, Jewish Americans, Asian Americans, Native Americans, Women, African Americans, and LGBT. You will learn the unique struggles that each of these groups experience and the ties that bind these vastly different groups together as minorities.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    Always, always, always do your homework and complete your assignments! Do not throw anything away, especially while you are still on that given unit because in the words of Mr. McDonald, "Everything is fair game for the test."
