This English class was about the same difficulty as my 11th grade English class. My senior year of English was a joke but I had to work really hard my junior year. However, it was different in that we didnít take a million practice AP exams and do pointless vocabulary and assignments that were simply just a pain. My English class in high school of my senior year was truly just a waste of time. I would shop online, skip class and walk around the halls with my friends, and sometimes I would just leave because she didnít take attendance. So obviously this course was much different in all those aspects. However, for the most part, it was pretty much what I expected but I have to say I was really shocked at the grade I received on my first paper. I do realize it wasnít my writing that got me a poor grade, but that it was the way and the amount I cited in my paper that got me in trouble. I think I benefitted most from these online discussions when they forced me to write about the upcoming papers. By doing this it forced me to start thinking about ideas and planning out my paper before it was due. I like to start projects and big assignments early but by being required to actually talk about what I was going to write about it made me start my assignments earlier. I think I benefitted least from reading the stories and having to do in class essays on. I just donít see how or why picking up on certain details of stories is going to benefit me greatly in life. I understand that having a general knowledge of picking up on certain things in stories is important if youíre a big reader, but honestly reading isnít exactly something I enjoy doing in my free time so perhaps that also contributed to my disliking the in class essays. I do think this class met my expectations. I read on rate my professor that you never have Friday class and I am really glad that you stuck to that because otherwise I would have class on Fridays at 8 and then not again until 11 because my other class is a 2 hour class so it only meets on Monday and Wednesday. So yes, this class has met my expectations and stuck strictly to detailed course syllabus.
