    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course for a number of reasons. Number one, the teacher is phenomenal. Mrs. Canestrari, being also a college professor, knows exactly how to prepare above average high school students for the challenging years ahead. She is also a published writer, so there is no one better to edit papers and help with improving your writing skills. This is a perfect course to take before entering into post-secondary education where writing an essay will be a normal assignment.

    Course highlights:

    In taking this course I learned how to write an excellent essay in MLA format. Not only did I learn the proper formatting, but I learned how to convey my message very thoroughly and in a way that is easily readable.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    I would suggest taking plenty of time to complete your essays. Get an early start, create several drafts, and have multiple people proofread each one for specific mistakes.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    The course is rigorous and college level. The essays force you to think deeper than surface level about subjects, and class discussions teach you to verbalize thoughts about different topics. The reading and course load​ are relatively heavy which prepares you for the academic rigor that you will expect in college. Overall the class provides you with invaluable skills and knowledge that an online or standard class can't.

    Course highlights:

    I gained insight into the world of critical writing. I was able to explore identity in different facets of everyday life, including food, relationships, and education. The class challenged many of my beliefs, and it caused me to form a deeper understanding​ of my own identity.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Make sure you have the drive to complete the course. While the work isn't much more than reading and writing essays, the required reading can stack up quickly if you don't stay ahead of the game. The course is only truly​ beneficial if you are willing to speak in class and listen to what your contemporaries have to say with an open mind.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    This course pushed students to be able to compose college-worthy essays in time-crunch situations and to a variety of prompts.

    Course highlights:

    This course was great at having students read material from articles and analyze the content. My class learned a lot about the rules for composition of MLA formatting on essays and about determining whether a source is reliable or not.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    In order to succeed, you need to read the material that is presented and make notes in the margins as thoughts pop into your head. When you know what the prompts are before reading the material, you have an idea of what things you're looking for to include in your essays. Don't take this course if you just absolutely despise writing.
