    | Would recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I am taking this course as a high school senior for dual credit. I would highly reccommend taking any AP or dual credit courses that you can while in high school, if your school offers them. This will save you money and time in the future. Therefore allowing you more time to concentrate on higher level classes within your major.

    Course highlights:

    My reading comprehension and writing skills are definitely improving while in this class.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Take the time to actually read the books assigned and highlight or take notes.

    | Would highly recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I loved Darcey. She was the best literature teacher I have ever had. She walked us through the simplest things, always there when we needed her, and did everything in her power to help us succeed. She was the best teacher I have ever had. I would recommend her to anyone.

    Course highlights:

    Learning about different cultures. We learned about so many of them and we learned about current events, past events, and gaining all of that knowledge helped all of us in that class to become more rounded individuals. I have NEVER had that kind of intense immersion in any other class I have ever had.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    I would say to never give up. Ask for help. Even if you feel like your paper is going to be horrible, Darcey can help enlighten you to make it great. Never doubt yourself.

    | Probably wouldn’t recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Not my preferred course considering the fact that writing papers is something I never really liked. She tried to find things we were interested in which was good, but I still didn't like it much.

    Course highlights:

    The highlight of this class was when we were assigned a project where we were supposed to do nothing and write about our experience. It was a really good experience because I just sat around on campus in my hammock.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    Make sure you actually invest time into the assignments she's actually a pretty hard grader.
