    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This class has helped me not only with reading/writing, but also with applying what we learn to real life. It is a large emphasis in the class to be able to take our insights from classic novels and be able to create something from that which can then inspire others. It is a very inspiring and motivating class, in all aspects of life.

    Course highlights:

    In this class I have learned how to not only find insights and analysis from a classic novel, but also how to take this analysis and use it in a helpful and creative way, whether that be in an essay, or in another aspect of life.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    Think deeply about the books you read and take notes as you read. Read and write something everyday.

    Complete the weekly one hour assignment and read as much non-fiction literature as you can.
