Always Do the Reading
This class was tough.
Not only does Mr. Borresen teach his students how to read and take notes like a college student, but he also teaches them how to write essays and papers like college students do. Over the course his students read many books and learn to analyze the author's claims and clues throughout the book.
Personally I enjoyed reading "The Great Gatsby" by F. Scott Fitzgerald. Not only did we read the book but Mr. Borresen also showed up clips from movies and story boards to help us further understand the book and what the author meant with certain parts of the book that were hard to follow.

Advice for students:
I would make sure I took very good notes, kept up with the reading, and write a conclusion to each set of notes. Not only are notes a big part of the class but I would also make sure to check in with the teacher at least once or twice a week to double check that I understood everything that happened throughout the class.
