    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course to any student that plans on attending college as it serve as a great introduction to English 101. With that being said, this is a rigorous course that should not be taken without understanding of what it entails. This course will teach you about world literature, effective writing skills, and critical thinking skills.

    Course highlights:

    I gained a breadth of knowledge through this course. The most important skill I learned however, is how to become a better writer. Writing has always been a strong subject for me, but this course helped take it to the next level. I am able to quickly and efficiently write a detailed paper in under 30 minutes now.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    The number one tip to thriving in the course is to study often and actually read the course material. There are several novels that are required with this course, but often times just reading them will not help. You will have to look up outside analyses in order to successfully participate in class discussions and do well on the tests. Also review vocabulary constantly.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I recom this course because it challenges your ability to understand literature through your writing.

    Course highlights:

    The high light of this co use is the introduction to many works whether they're popular or not but still being able to understand the meaning behind the piece.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    Read what you're assigned plus more and open your eyes to other writers perspective.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    Gary Skinner will expand your mind. This isn't a class that you can Spark Note your way through. This is a class that will make you question the purpose of your reality and the very definition of your assumed "morality."

    Course highlights:

    The highlights of this course would mainly include every single class. Honestly, a class without Gary Skinner (with some substitute) did not feel like English class. What is a sermon without a preacher? Some knock-off sinner could never hope to replicate the existential microcosm the aura of Gary Skinner projects.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Write the papers. Read the books. Don't even try to fake it. He will stare into your eyes with the creamy blue ponderings of his own icy irises and bore straight down into your pretending heart. He will not revolt in disgust at its pretentious nature, nor lecture you on the necessities of responsibility, but with firm lips allow a heavy nod, as if he understands the innards of your soul far better than you could ever comprehend. You, "this papier-mâché Mephistopheles... that if [he] tried could poke [his] forefinger through you, and would find nothing inside but a little loose dirt, maybe." Oh the horror! The horror!
