    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would most definitely recommend it because we had really great discussions and the stuff that we learned in that class is something that could be easily applied outside of the classroom.

    Course highlights:

    I learned how to discuss topics thoroughly with other people. Also, I learned how to convey my ideas clearly and elegantly through my writing. Also researching was a big part of the class for the essays that we had to write. We learned how to find good evidence and find good sources.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Make sure you pay attention in class and if you don't understand something ask the teacher. Work hard at improving your writing and don't be too hard on yourself if you get a bad grade on an assignment because we learn on what we need to get better on.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I would highly recommend this class for those who want to challenge themselves. It taught me so much in annotating and analyzing books and texts. I use these skills everyday naturally without a second thought. It challenged me everyday and I enjoyed it every moment.

    Course highlights:

    Highlights would include analyzing older texts from the 1800s. It was fascinating how they wrote and what they really meant. It also challenged my knowledge of vocabulary. Something I enjoyed very much.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Set time aside for everyday to get the homework done. Even if it isn't due the next day have a specific time of the day where you sit down and knock all the homework out of the way. Procrastination will be killer if you do your homework the night of or before. Make sure you stay on top of everything in that class because it will pile up quickly if you get behind.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This course both strengthened my writing and analyzing. Taking this class created a new perspective on what my priorities need to be. I dreaded the many nights of homework, but from that homework I began to witness my writing become something powerful. Challenging myself to expand my vocabulary and take the extra time to ask questions, I was able to gain confidence in what I was turning in and I SIMPLY became proud of my work.

    Course highlights:

    Any of the few times we got to creatively write, were both my favorite moments in the class and the highlight of the course itself. Having a creative person as a teacher effected the whole course and became one of the main reasons my writing got better. Because of her we could easily write of why an author did what, while stylistically adding the things the author did to our writing.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Use thesauruses, ask questions, and be prepared for homework. Thesauruses enhance your writing and is something that I leaned on in the class when I was either tired of writing or not motivated to write. Asking questions will only help you, and will help clarify something that might keep you from writing something worthy of an A. Homework and late nights were a big part of this class. Staying on top of the class keeps you from falling behind, and failing.
