    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I would recomend this class to those who love reading and understanding the thought process of others more. This class gives you perspective on how to write and gives you structure to write without following a specific format. It teaches you how to read and disect different articles of writing on similar subjects and unbiasedly write about how each journalist convayed their points and which one might have done it in a better way than another. It also gives you a retrospective look on how to communicate with other people about topics on which you may not agree on.

    Course highlights:

    Some of the best parts of this class were group discussions. You get to hear other people's opinions and it teaches you to recoginize different avenues of thinking. You learn how to write annalytically without personal opinion. I learned how to factually prove why one person's writing was better than other, and also how to disect why your personal appeal to one writing over another is a skill that one writer has over another and how to incoroprate that into your own writing about the different pieces that you are reading.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    Be ready to put in a lot of work in this class. Be sure to read all of your articles and take detailed notes on each one because they will help in your comparison essays. Be open and willing to having other people look at your work and to look at theirs. Opinions from other people in that class are very important. Listen to what others say because they might just give you a new perspective on a ariticle that you had never thought of before.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I would recomend this course because the teacher is amazing. She helps you understand the basic structures of writing better than any other teacher I have taken an english class, and it is because of this class that I grew to love english as much as I, and why one day I want to teach english.

    Course highlights:

    Reading all of the different scholarly articles and getting to read other students essays and opinions on them. Hearing other peoples insites on the same article is one of the best parts of this class because it opens you up to new ideas and no matter how hard the class got you always had someone else to help you tare a part an article for your essays.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    I would say take this class, because it is fun and intmate course that will make you really learn to respect english. Be ready to do a lot of work though, becasue it is a fully immersive class that has a lot of reading and disecting of different articles of journalism

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This course prepares you for college! It can be mentally taxing but it is completely worth it to step out of your comfort zone as you learn new and better ways to write.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights of this course were diving deep into the motives behind pieces and learning how to read something and pick it apart. You gain that deeper level of understanding and the ability to pick pieces apart to test their validity.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Make sure you read the materials because once you have that basic understanding of a piece, then you can dive deeper into it.
