    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I recommend this course because it is a great class to take if you wish to obtain credit for both high school and college. It contains a lot of research and essay writing but if you do everything on time and with care, you can do really good.

    Course highlights:

    The highlight of this course is being able to learn how to go deeper into writing essays and finding information to be argumentative. I learned how to go deeper into my research to make the essay come out better.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    In order to succeed in this course, it is best to get your work done early. Most of the essays we did in this course took a lot of research time in order to make this s

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This course has helped me expand my writing skills, understanding the ways to summarizing an article and using quotes while using the correct MLA format. I learned how to look at different sides of arguments and how to persuade an audience using kiros, ethos, logos and pathos.

    Course highlights:

    I really enjoyed when we had to summarize two viewpoints of an argument, while stating their justification for their argument. We learned how to put an introduction together by providing background information on the certain argument and providing the stakeholders that are affected.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    If you're going to take this course, you have to understand it's not going to be easy. You have to put in work, understand what prompt you're given and review thoroughly the rubric you are provided with.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    The class is very simple, read the modules on the Canvas online services, take notes over the key components of the essay that you'll be writing, write the essay using the notes about how to write it and your resources, turn it in and revise based on your new grade, get a new assignment, and repeat. There's only a few assignments and if you're a person who likes arguing or would like to learn the proper way to make an argument, I highly recommend it. Both the high school teacher Mr. Ingram and the college course professor Dr. Steel are helpful individuals, and as long as you don't mind long writing assignments or research over controversy (since that's what the class revolves around) you'll be fine!

    Course highlights:

    I can make a really strong argument in regular conversation these days and the type of writing that we are required to do is really similar to what I've been shown is asked for in basic college English assignments. The lack of assignments and urgency to score high marks on each one is also a good push and an ease into the feeling of taking a college course with few assignments.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    You need to be willing to find opinion articles over current controversies and explain how they relate to the controversy itself and their positions whether they are for or against it, but not with bias. Until the second half of the first semester, bias is the enemy and neutrality is key. There are only a few assignments for the high school course, but there are even less for the college half, so each assignment really counts and you have to give at least 80% into all of them! And when the time does come for argument, the key to a good essay is gentle persuasion instead of a huge push. Really, it's a calm course where you can slack if you're willing to work hard whenever a new assignment comes up.
