English classes follow strict outlines through which its students are forced to adopt counterintuitive mandates. Many of which are necessary for the average scholar to appropriately structure writings. These strict outlines leave little to no room for evaluation of artistic writings (such as poems and the like) by use of the, “eye of the beholder,” method. This class is certainly unlike any former English class I have yet taken. The ability to read articles of various formats and discuss them allow for a guided mentoring instead of the typical one answer teaching styles. This allows creativity in the class while evaluating an articles’ technical structuring.

In this modern world we live in, the formats of published works are ever changing. So then must the classes in which modern students are taught, also change. I have never before even seen a blog, let alone write one. This class has, “broadened my horizons,” in this way.
