    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course to anyone who likes to read and write. It is a great place to freely get your thoughts on paper. It is also the only class where we had honest class discussions. Sometimes the discussions got too intense (to the point where in order to talk, you had to scream), but that's what made the class entertaining.

    Course highlights:

    One of my favorite parts of this course was debating. The class had just read the book, "In Cold Blood," and Ms. Hudak told us that we would debate about topics from the book. Both debating and observing the debates was a blast, especially because it was my first project that I ever had to do that truly tested my knowledge. I loved being able to prove that I was an "expert" on the topic!

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    You need to be on top of your work. In this class (more than any), once you get behind, it is close to impossible to catch back up. Especially during the writing of the research papers, it is crucial to write the amount that you are supposed to every night. This not only will improve your grade, but it will allow you to stay less stressed/overwhelmed. Also, don't be afraid to speak your mind in class. Although discussions get heated, the room is a judge-free zone, and at the end of the day, having your own opinion is a good thing!

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this class to anyone who loves reading as much as I do. Or in fact, as much as the teacher does. Nothing is better than having a teacher who carries a high passion for the subject being taught. Odds are, if the teacher is excited, you will be too.

    Course highlights:

    Having the group discussions was very important to the assignment we were working on. It let everyone share their view of the novel or play and open other's minds to it as well. Then having feedback on helped to improve your work.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Be able to plan your time wisely. The work can be fun if you actually do it.
