    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    This course prepared me for college courses to come in the next years of my life, and allowed me to grow and learn on my own by interacting with my peers and doing research on how to write effectively. This course showed me the importance of listening intently and understand that teachers say things once for a reason.

    Course highlights:

    From taking this course I learned a valuable lesson in time management with two large projects requiring more time than just the night before it's supposed to be due. It taught me a lot about analyzing literature and the importance of vocabulary as well as time period. The knowledge and lessons gained from taking this course were irreplaceable and certainly valuable in preparation for college.

    Hours per week:

    12+ hours

    Advice for students:

    Listen intently and do not fall behind. Do the required assignments and turn them in on time. Learn to manage your time by creating a calendar or planner to help yourself complete everything.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Mrs. Smithson does a superb job of preparing her students for college. She assigned us a massive book project in September, due in January, that focused on helping us develop time management. I, like many of my classmates, put off the assignment until the week before, and I was so stressed out that I did not finish. I turned my assignment in three days after it was due. The whole purpose of this assignment was to teach us that we won't have someone breathing down our necks to get things done on time. We have to learn how to manage our time, without procrastination. Smithson also taught us the importance of communicating with our teachers. She explained to us we need to send an email to our instructor before the deadline to own up to our mistakes ahead of time, rather than ask for forgiveness later. Overall, this class has provided me with insights to succeed in college.

    Course highlights:

    Our class is one huge family. We suffer through the stressful in-class writes, literary terms quizzes, and book assignments. But we also enjoy the memories made through reciting King Lear, coffee Fridays, and life discussions. All and all, I have made some of my deepest relationships with my classmates and teacher. We are all honest people with integrity and a desire to be successful in the future, and that is really beneficial for a strong learning environment.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Never be afraid to take risks. English is all about your interpretation of the material, so there are no incorrect answers. It's all your opinion. Knowing this, it is alright to share your views in discussions, and writing papers is easier because you don't worry about saying the "right" thing. Also, don't procrastinate! That will be the death of you. As long as you stick with the workload, you will do fine, and won't get stressed. As soon as you fall behind, you will drown in the amount of work you should complete.
