    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    K. Fred is excellent at talking with students, helping them outline their essays, and talking to the class as a set of humans with functional brains rather than just numbers on her attendance roll. If I had questions, she answered them, and that made all of the assignments very easy to understand and complete. It's a fair amount of reading and writing, but the thorough discussions helped everyone understand where they might have gone wrong AND what they did absolutely right.

    Course highlights:

    I gained the ability to realize that the interests I already had could be applied to every assignment in this course. I wrote two opinion editorials about how parents need to support their children with depression and it worked mostly because it was a topic that meant something to me. I even wrote the research paper on Jane Eyre and got full marks because nothing in this class is about following a set of steps. It's all about learning the skills behind making an essay worth reading, not just getting a grade from a computer.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Clear your schedule. This class will take up a lot of time and brainpower, but it's worth it. Not only are you getting an idea of what college will demand of you, you'll learn how to read faster and smarter, not harder.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course because not only do you need it for your generals, but there will be lessons upon lessons that will be taught. Ones that will benefit you not only in the classroom, but also inn the outside world. It gives you a better understanding of life from a writers perspective which is one of the best perspectives you can receive.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights of this class are hard to choose from because there are so many. I think the most important "highlight" or the thing I learned, is that there is no possible way to please everyone. The saying "go with your gut" has been my go-to throughout this course in many different ways and I couldn't be more thankful for a challenge.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    This course is going to be a lot of writing and researching (if needed). You need to be dedicated because the more time you put into this class the better results you will get, just like any other thing in life.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    The material of the class is of a medium difficulty. There is a lot of writing, as in, back to back to back essays; I believe you write 6 different pieces, some easy some hard. The course, as far as class time, is super boring compared to other regular class times. Its all lecture. There's little time in class to work on homework, however, keep in mind it is a concurrent college class so it is pretty much follows the standards of a college course. If you're a hard worker and don't abhor English, this course is fine. What isn't fine about the course is the teacher. She plays favorites like a professional athlete, and if you aren't one of her favorites, which usually consists of those on the track team, she greatly vacillates in her general opinion of you. Each day her mood is totally different. She could be totally fine, or totally psychotic. You get polar extremes with this woman. I went the whole semester believing she thought I was incompetent, idiotic, and an annoyance based on the way she interacted with me, but then, on the very last day I attended school, she said, "I like you. You're my favorite!" I never had wanted to punch a teacher in the face so bad...

    Course highlights:

    I did improve my writing through the subjects taught in this course. The concept of concise writing, amongst other essential writing concepts, is incredibly applicable to success in any academic future.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    Keep your head relatively down in class. If you don't bother her, she won't bother you, but do ask any relevant questions to clarify what she is looking for in her assignments. Also, she posts information on the assignments including instructions, rubrics, handouts, and examples. Read all of them when the appropriate assignment comes up. They saved my grade when it came down to doing the assignments.
