    | Would highly recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course for sure. The workload isn't a walk in the park, but it subtly teaches time management and the consequences of procrastination. Taking it as a high school student, it helps me recognize what I should expect as a student in college and I am grateful for the awakening.

    Course highlights:

    Group projects. It was entertaining and pleasing to learn new information as a group and discuss ideas, opinions and solutions. The videos we present in class are enjoyable and gives us a sense of leadership for we are becoming teachers in the classroom and sharing what we now know.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Do not procrastinate on big essays/assignments, or you will get a grade you did not expect. Take the time to understand the reading, questions, and analysis discussed in class.

    | No strong feelings either way.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I liked the material, as we dove into women's rights and role, role of immigrants, and the likes, but I didn't particularly enjoy the teacher. I didn't feel encouraged to think differently or think out loud, as the teacher would totally deny my answer and not give it a chance. I believe the language arts is where the mind wanders around possible reasons for a happening, and if the class no longer allows me that, it does me no good, and only makes me miserable. Don't get me wrong, I love english, but it totally depends on the way the teacher teaches it and their style.

    Course highlights:

    I never realized I identified with feminists until we had to read "The Dollhouse". When the obedient wife gets tired of being belittled and treated like a child, she claims her independence, turning the tables on her husband. That was an empowering moment for me, when I reached the end of the book. Now I take the statement "like a girl" differently. Theres no "throwing like a girl" or "talking like a girl" now; there's just doing things like a human.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Only take it if you love it. If you don't, you'll be miserable, as with other classes if you take it only for the credit.
