    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    This class was a GEF course, so it was something I needed to take to get some sort of English credits. The material set up for the class was extremely easy--meaning, a 7 page paper was the largest paper we had to write. I came from a high school where that was around the average amount of pages we were expected to write. While that was easy, the essays prompts got harder as the semester went along, which was nice. It is a nice thing to be challenged. I understand that since it is a general 101 course, it should be somewhat easy, but I feel like there could be more work and more thought in the design of the class. Ms. Saunders was an excellent teacher to have for this class. She definitely expected a lot out of the students. Even though some students never seemed to reach her expectation, she was very level-headed and understanding.

    Course highlights:

    I think Ms. Saunders made the class as excited as she possibly could. There's nothing really interesting about the course, but she tried to engage us as much as possible. We had a lot of short stories and articles to read, and those were usually comedic, so it wasn't something boring that we would have to analyze.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    If you take this course, don't slack off. While it is a relatively easy course, there's not much time in between projects, so if you slack on one, you'll most likely be behind on the next one. Also, when it comes to revising your portfolio, DO IT. You have to show proof that you edited the paper, so if you don't she will know, and points will be taken off accordingly.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Good teacher and ample time to complete and revise papers

    Course highlights:

    Highlights were definitely a few papers that needed to be written

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Patience and imagination are very powerful for this course. Reasonable time-management is very good for this class because deadlines can come up quick, and papers can eventually pile on top of each other.
