    | Would recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I recommend this course because it is taught at a college level, but you still have a high school teacher present that is more willing to help than a professor would. College professors are sometimes only teaching for the money, and not for the further education their students.

    Course highlights:

    The highlight of this course was that you learned how to actually write a good essay before entering college. This allowed you to learn how to jump from high school essay writing to the level college essay writing.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    I would advise students to gain as much bonus pulls as possible. The teacher provides numerous opportunities to gain bonus pulls, so take full advantage of them. They will help you majorly.

    | Would highly recommend.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course because it taught me to think through my ideas. It seemed like what I had down on my paper was never enough, and Mrs. Miller would always tell me to elaborate more and more. Now I can write essays very quickly and thoroughly. They aren't as scary anymore! If you are a english buff it is especially fun and will stretch your understanding of language.

    Course highlights:

    We read books with wonderful life lesson themes that we learned from, such as the theme of the American Dream in The Great Gatsby that taught us to believe once more in the American Dream for what it is. We always have a class discussion every few chapters of the book we were into, and they were always deep and thought provoking. It got me out of my shell some more so I could share my ideas!

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    I always wrote an outline for my essays and thought very carefully about how they were organized. Very rarely could I write an essay without one. I also always read the book (every single chapter) and took notes on sticky notes about the theme showing through and other important ideas about the book. Sometimes I had to read a passage two or three times to understand it, but it was always worth it. Never skip over something you don't understand. Also, when you write essays, use what you know. You have background information that makes you unique - use it!
