    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I enjoyed this class because it allowed me to grow as a writer. We study many different poetic devices in literature from famous writers such as Edgar Allen Poe and learned how to incorporate these devices into our own writing. We also learned how to inherit the voice, tone, and mood of certain writers to produce writing similar to theirs to further understand voice, mood, tone and other aspects of writing.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights of the course would be both reading and watching The Great Gatsby to see what devices was used in the book in comparison to the movie and how it is interpreted by the audience.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Only take this course if you are serious about writing and literature. You are going to dive deep into literature and will learn how to dissect it piece by piece and learn how to compose it as well and how to interpret it.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This is a basic course that I believe everyone take especially if they want to broaden their writing skills in preperation for future essays.

    Course highlights:

    I learned the skills necessary for good writin- all very simple once you open your mind to them. They improve your writing the moment you're expossed to them.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    Keep your mind focused, work hard, and you will succeed.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend it because it offers a direct approach to language arts by discussing both contemporary and ancient literary texts then connecting its relevance to the modern world through critical thinking and analysis. It also sharpens oral rhetoric and persuasive abilities tremendously. I would not recommend it because of the fast paced workload and high expectations.

    Course highlights:

    I learned the value and significance of literature and historical texts which seem irrelevant in our technology- induced age, but really lends perspective that is usually consistent in its validated theories on society, humanity, and civilization as a whole.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    If you have a passion for discussing deep, controversial topics, while using your background knowledge from history and literature, by all means take the course. However, if your goal is simply to get college credits or build a nice resume, you're in for a rude awakening.
