    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would most definitely recommend taking this course as it taught me how to become a formal and fluent writer; I learned how to be descriptive, but also to only add enough detail to inform the reader without adding any confusion. This course also allowed me to expand and heighten my vocabulary.

    Course highlights:

    Taking this course taught me the significance of diction and the utilization of literary devices. My vocabulary was immensely expanded and I learned how to be precise and straight to the point in my writing. I also learned how to dissect other novels and readings through examining tone and their use of rhetorical strategies. Our class worked with different vocabulary on literature along with general vocabulary to use in our writing. We also spent time working with other readings to improve our understanding of how authors write and use rhetorical strategies.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    In order to succeed, I suggest if you take this course that you spend time learning new vocabulary. The only way to improve your diction is to try and use new words and give attention to your word choice. Also, when reading the different novels and other reading assignments throughout the course, try to spend time examining the author's rhetorical strategies. If you do not recognize a word, look it up and try to use it in your own writing.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Mrs. Hitchcock is amazing at explaining any question you have. Her class is energetic, keeps your attention, and is actually interesting. We would read a novel of our choice while reading a novel according to curriculum, which helped keep my attention while teaching me language skills and improved my reading comprehension.

    Course highlights:

    The amount of things I learned while reading is incomprehensible. At first, I hated the idea of reading so much, but actually getting into the groove of reading the required chapters was easy and interesting when I actually sat down and tried to understand the content.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Read your scheduled chapters so you don't fall behind, and keep annotating as soon as you identify one.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course if you enjoy writing essays in class about books you read outside class. If you are not a fan of reading do NOT take this class.

    Course highlights:

    Highlights of this course is that I get to read a lot, and since I am a fan of reading I couldn't enjoy this class any better. But, i learned that procrastinating in this class will not go well.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Make sure the reading is done before the day that it is due, or else if there is a surprise quick write about that section it will not go well.
