    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    This course requires you to develop an entirely new way of reading literature- these skills also translate into the way you watch films and listen to music. While the class is difficult and time consuming, the improvements in critical thinking and writing ability make it well worth the time and effort.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights of this course were getting to take our skills and apply them to real world situations. We began every class by listening to a song and analyzing the lyrics, many were from popular musicians like U2 and Bruce Springsteen. Our class also went on trips to see plays and movies that we had read plays or novels about, these included Fences and Othello. These all helped immensely to bring the course to life.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    This course is only as rewarding as the about of time you're willing to invest in it. Meaning if you don't put any time into reading the material and studying, wyou wont get anything out of the course. The key to succeeding is always doing the assigned reading and writing as well as participating in class discussions.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    This class helped my writing skills, communication skills, and reading skills. This course was extremely challenging, but it was a course that taught me how to analyze. I would suggest that every student take it because it sharpens English skills.

    Course highlights:

    I gained an insight on how to really read a novel or short story! I learned how to pull out certain parts of a novel and use it to show what the author really means. There is so much more than just reading a book. You have to look at the wording, the setting, the characters, and the type of language used. This course made me focus in on how to analyze a novel.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Whenever you write a paper, use quotes from the novel or short story. This is essential to writing a paper on a novel because the quotes back up your paper. Also, dig deep. Don't just read the book and try to summarize it, but instead look at the actual wording. Always ask yourself "Why did the author do this?"
