    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    You certainly have to work for your grade by in doing so, you get much out of it! I went in thinking I knew everything there was to know about English but it turned out that I had a lot to learn and this class has helped me learn what I was missing.

    Course highlights:

    I learned how to interpret text properly and without bias, which I didn't realize that I had been doing for so long. I learned how to support my arguments with specific evidence and how to develop a thesis that makes the reader think further into the text.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Keep up with the work and the reading. There are some pop quizzes.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    This course was one of the toughest English classes I have taken, but it was also one of the best. Most other students in other classes complained about all of the writing assignments they had, but I think I only had a total of four writing assignments for this class, and not once was it a full essay. Brother d'Evegnee would have us write the outlines of an essay in the form of a worksheet or a powerpoint. You just always had to be ready to discuss the reading and analyze just about everything. To be honest, as one who doesnt really think analytically, this class was pretty tough, yet with lots of studying and asking questions, i managed to keep a solid A throughout the course.

    Course highlights:

    This course is great for people who like to think analytically, and with this instructor, who like to voice their opinions about it. With every text we read, we had to interpret and analyze nearly every line while recognizing that there is no wrong interpretation, so long as you can argue and support the point. It also introduces to all of the different versions of interpretations: Freud, Marxism, Feminism, etc.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Do the readings, even if it seems boring, and take notes to help you stay awake through the readings. There will be quizzes often, if not each class period, so pay attention. Don't be afraid to ask questions or ask for help. The instructor is willing to give you extra help and advice on assignments if you come to his office. That's how I managed to get 100% on my final essay, rather than the C that I most likely would have received before requesting his help.
