    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I recommend this course not only because it is required but it helps establish a good foundation in writing and analysis in literature through various methods. This class helped me establish a better understanding in how to write analysis papers, expository writing, research paper and especially synthesis papers. The class is extremely fun, and the novels we read in the class were amazing classics. I would highly recommend, even if the class can be challenging at times.

    Course highlights:

    The highlight of this course for me was being able to understand how to better my writing and with that understanding the true meaning of each novel we read. I learned that every novel has the overarching theme but also has an underlying theme which takes thorough reading and understanding. I also learned that, the better the reader you are, the better the writer you become.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    The best advice I can give for anyone that is considering this course is to take it and stop being lazy! This course is not at all impossible or to difficult, as long as your read the novels and write decent essays. Do as the teacher says, turn in all assignments and actually read the novels and a good grade will follow.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    This class teaches the student to expand their mind to other works of literature that are outside of the typical classic American works.

    Course highlights:

    I was able to consider classics from other civilizations such as Candide by Voltaire or Oedipus Rex by Sophocles. Such works I am now able to incorporate into any essay or argument that I partake in.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    This is a course that requires you to put work into it and is one that cannot be blown off. That being said, just make sure to follow the directions given by your teachers and to make your essays complex and with all the details given by you.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course because it teaches one a lot of basics about the English language, such as proper grammar, advanced vocabulary, and writing.

    Course highlights:

    I learned how to write essays without making mistakes such as comma splices, run on sentences or fragments, I learned the importance of a good introduction and conclusion in an essay and how important it is to plan out what one writes before he or she begins writing.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Pay attention to the teachers lectures, they will help improve your understanding of the subject and hopefully lead to a successful experience in the class.
