    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I thought this course was very fun and interesting overall. Our teacher was very energetic and engaged and truly cared about us and our future. Just having that made the class much more enjoyable. The topics covered in that class were also very interesting, as we read various books covering a broad range of topics. I would definitely recommend this course to anyone who has not taken it.

    Course highlights:

    By taking this course, I gained necessary English writing and reading skills. I really improved my writing in this class and it has really paid off. I gained knowledge on historical events, such as the Harlem Witch Trials and slavery in Africa. Our teacher also cared about us going to college, so she had us write research papers about colleges which I feel were very eye-opening and beneficial to everyone in that class. I learned a lot of necessary material in that class and also learned a lot about the possibilities of my future thanks to the teacher.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    The only advice I would have for a student taking this course is to make sure you always read and do your homework on time. There is going to be a lot of both, but if you do it you should make it through the course just fine.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would highly recommend a speech class, as it teaches you not only how to speak in public without being afraid of messing up, but also how to speak effectively so you don't have to talk all too much! You learn skills that can apply in other classes, as you can be asked to write and perform a speech in academic and extracurricular activities. Its an essential skill we all need in order to get through school, so you might as well take the class to do well in it so you can handle public speaking in other areas.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights of the course include learning how to speak efficiently and getting to the point where you enjoy it. I learned how to be a speaker that is coherent and straight-to-the-point.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Do your speech work on time! Time management and ability to write are must haves, so practice your writing abilities before you get too deep into this class!

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I found it very helpful and I learned a lot. She was very thorough about what she taught and I really enjoyed her teaching style.

    Course highlights:

    I learned all about Mla format and the requirements for doing a research paper. It really got me prepared for my college English courses. I really learned a lot.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    I would say to always read your notes, and pay attention to the lectures and don't be discouraged by the material that is taught.
