    | Probably wouldn’t recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This is a required class, so you have to take it, but I totally advise you take it with Dr. Owens. I got to take his class second semester and learned so much from him. Stratton was a very lovely lady and I definitely grew spiritually thanks to her. I just felt like her teaching style was difficult for me to follow. I wish before taking this class I knew more about the Old Testament just as background because it really is very in-depth.

    Course highlights:

    I really did learn a lot in her class, and she taught a lot about meditation over verses and having the Old Testament apply to our lives now, which is an extremely difficult task. She also had in class reviews that helped so much before tests to let me know what I needed to go back over before the test.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Take a lot of notes! She will have a lot of information on slides and it's important that you have all of it because we have mini exams all about this information. It'd also be a good idea to label the dates that you went over things because this lessens confusion when reviewing.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    She is unorganized and she does not come prepared for her classes. She also considers the movie Noah a legitimate piece of educational value.

    Course highlights:

    I did learn about the Torah and the Old Testament laws and customs.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Read materials carefully, they will be your friends.

    | No strong feelings either way.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course for someone who likes a less direct course of study. Mrs. Stratton was a very good teacher, but she had a very roundabout way of teaching. Rather than getting to the point of the matter, she often moved around and covered a variety of different details on just one subject. While some people might like this way of teaching, I am not too fond of it. However, I loved her personality.

    Course highlights:

    Highlights of this course I would have to say were the in class discussions. She would influence us to talk on our own about certain topics, and would input her own opinion on these topics, which in turn gave us more to talk about. I learned the basics of the Pentateuch for OT 101, and even more details than I probably would have otherwise.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Make sure that you do the required readings of the text. The book is a bit hard to read in my opinion, but it was very necessary if you want to succeed on the quizzes and tests. The class is passable at best if you don't read, and it's especially challenging to participate in class discussions without reading.
