    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    English 101 is an amazing introduction into basic English writing. I learned so much throughout this class that still impacts me even now. On average, I'm getting better grades on my papers now than before.

    Course highlights:

    Through English 101, I learned how to do many things associated with English composition. For example, I now know how to write a multitude of different essays, such as compare and contrast, argumentative, descriptive, the whole nine yards. My introductions, theses, and conclusions are much stronger than before. Finally, I learned how to best fact check my information, and to use library databases.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    Make sure you do the readings in the textbook. It has a lot of advice on how to accomplish your goals with your writing. Also, don't put off your work until the last minute. Your grade will absolutely reflect it if you do. Most importantly, don't be afraid to ask your professor for help if you don't understand something or want something clarified (For me, this was almost always a question about MLA format). Have fun!!

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This was a very informative and interactive course. The teacher didn't just teach, but brought subjects to life through media and field study trips. The downside was that most students were not prepared for the AP test that followed the course.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights of this course were the projects. Working together, students came up with some fantastic things, like outstanding poetry and in-depth analyses of short stories.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    I would advise students considering this course to always keep on top of their work. Don't let deadlines slip by unnoticed. Be diligent in completing assignments and studying.
