    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?"
