    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Taking this course has not only developed my understanding of literature and writing techniqueeC, but has given me the opportunity to express my literary knowledge through new writing styles. The assignments given in this class allow each and every student to express their own unique styles and voice their creative insights without ANY limitations. Despite the challenging, sometimes intimidating, yet rarely discouraging coursework, this class has been the most affective in the expansion of my literary knowledge and capabilities.

    Course highlights:

    Contrary to common belief, writing assignments are undoubtedly the highlight of this class. Ms. Tarr allows creativity to truly flow by assigning promptless essays to students, with the only guideline being that the essay must be written in a certain rhetorical style of your own choosing. Through assignments like these, I learned that writing is not a defined, structural tool. It is a flowing stretch of imagination, taking turns without even a moment's notice. I learned how to accurately express not only myself, but the talents and abilities that I had never known myself to possess in the field of literature.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    If you are planning on taking this course, to need to have a passion for learning and expanding your academic horizons. However, if you don't have that passion now, and still are planning on taking this class, you must be ready and able to be forced to grasp new concepts about literature and composition and be open to experimentation with your writing styles. You must be able to take constructive criticism and grow from it, or else you will not grow in this class or reap all of the wonderful benefits the curriculum has to offer.

    Course Overview:

    Dr. Sharrow is very passionate about literature and makes each class an in depth discussion about the works. It is a very heavy work load. You must write a three page essay every week.

    Don't worry about test grades. each tests averages around a 50-60%, but if you work hard on the other work, it is very easy to get an A in this course. Spend time on your essays and ask him for advice, he is very willing to help you improve your essays before you hand them in.
