    | Would recommend.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    The class enhances your writing abilities and teaches you new and improved skills. These skills are very likely to prepare you for college/university.

    Course highlights:

    I enjoyed working with my classmates and meeting new people. I learned how to write a proper essay, and don't always try to sound so formal. I also really enjoyed reading the Narrative of the Life of Frederick Douglass, a great book. I recommend it to all.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Take it easy. Get the work done and do not procrastinate. Also, ask questions when you need help.

    | Would highly recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this class especially because of the teacher. Mr. Miller is a kind of teacher, who take his job very seriously. He is always strongly focused on making his student learn. unlike any other teacher i have seen, he has control over the atmosphere of the class, in the sense that he can turn on and off the joke at will. when in his class, you can't help, but push yourself to participate. every book read for each week is deeply analyzed and with reasonable understanding between him and the students. if you are unwilling to participate on your own and need a little motivation , then Mr. Miller's class is the right one for you. during my time in this course I became my own motivation to not only participating, but also understanding my writing skills in other to improve them. Mr. Miller works really hard and so expects his students to work just as hard, so we engage in rigorous activities every week with a mandatory essay for each book read. It was a lot of work, but very worth it in the end.

    Course highlights:

    In this course, I learned to analyze significant details in books, poems, and articles. I also memorized a good amount of vocabularies as we had to remember five new vocabularies every day. I also learned how to work as a team, specifically how to do my part of the work and encourage others to do theirs. one of the most important things I learned was that it is never bad to try, because no one would hurt you for failing. I also learned that every piece of writing work could have a variety of interpretations, so I shouldn't be afraid to share my opinion.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    For this very class I would advice students to be ready for hard work and feel free to ask questions or help in the class. feel free to ask question and answer questions. if ideas fly in, don't forget to throw them out there, because it might make more sense to the teacher than you thought. Again hard-work, there will be a lot going on in this class. Mr. Miller is a hard-working teacher, show some appreciation by working just as hard to do the work you are given.
