    | Would highly recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course because of the course is an exploratory course to studying English. The readings were easy, the class room discussions were in depth and the writing assignments allowed for the students to really engage in critical analysis of the texts.

    Course highlights:

    Well, any great teacher can make an already great class extraordinary. Dr. Bonnie Noonan, really knows how to make a lesson stick. She may read a particular story about a location near our school and we would take trips to these locations to help us try and embody the story. It was a great exercise because I was able to become even more engaged with the story by knowing where the setting took place.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Read the stories that are assigned. Keep an open mind when writing papers and speak up in class. Be an active participant, it makes the entire experience worth while.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course because she taught english in a different way. She made english more than just reading a book and writing a paper. Going though our epics, she made each character come alive to us.

    Course highlights:

    One of the highlights in this course was watching Aladdin to end off the semester in easy. Even though this is a child movie , this movie has some moral views in it. We had to write a paper about it , but it made us realize that even child movies have good reasoning. Another highlight of this course was when Dr. Noonan made the epics come alive. We played the roles of each character in our own interpretations.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    In this class you need to stay involved. You must read and make sure you do it with understanding. The quizzes are online and they will help you. After each book you write a 500 word paper on a question she gives you.

    | No strong feelings either way.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    Although this is a required course, I would not recommend this professor. He isn't a bad teacher, in fact, he's pretty good at explaining the material. However, his lectures are very boring and so are the reading assignments. So, if you do end up taking this professor, do not take him early in the morning. You might fall asleep.

    Course highlights:

    The highlight of this course is that I was able to learn more about folklore from around the world. It was interesting to see how similar a lot of the stories were despite originating from very different places. Learning about Egyptian poetry was also interesting because many of them were about love. Although the place and time they were written are different from the world I live in, the overall message of the poetry was very relatable.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Make sure you do the reading! All writing assignments and pop quizzes will be based on them. Also, start the reading in advance. Dr. Whitaker often assigns a lot of pages so starting the night before class won't cut it.
