    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    It's vital to take notes during every lecture. Quotes that could be used in essays are given, and he discusses each of them thoroughly.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This was a fun and pretty easy class that I took online for ten weeks during the summer. We logged in every week and had to submit an essay on a certain day.

    Course highlights:

    We read a lot of poems and stories and then had to write an essay on it explaining what we learned or what was interesting. Our teacher would post questions to the discussion board and we would have to answer. We would also have to write a review.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Some advice for this class, especially if it's taken online, just make sure to prioritize your time and make sure to sign into blackboard at least twice a week.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This course definitely kick started my excitement for college courses. It is challenging in a way that forces your mind to grow and expand. We did not spend our time doing typical mind-numbing English​ assignments. The questions we were asked we tough, insightful, deep, and truly challenging to who you are. There, we were individuals, not just part of the crowd.

    Course highlights:

    I thought that the part of this course where we dissected famous pieces of literature was by far my favorite. It allowed for us to feel the authors feelings. We were taught to read so much more from a book than just the words. Now, we have left with a clear understanding of the structure of a piece of literature. We understand the building​ blocks that make up a picture, now more clear than ever.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    Listen to every word your professor tells you and trust them when they pull you outside of your comfort zone. Your mind will never grow if you do not challenge it. Believe me, it is worth all of the hard work in the end. The way you see any piece of literature is completely altered.
