I do like their platform, I took quite a few courses through them including English Composition II.

I'd say difficulty was medium but easy to follow guidelines/rubrics.

I certainly enjoyed reading Shelley's Frankenstein.

I didn't want their Eng Comp II because I've read that book a few times for high school and honors English in college. I don't like the book. LOL so I went with Sophia. I'm in the home stretch. My biggest is problem is that I am over the gen eds and writing about topics I don't care about. I just want the mea and potatoes part of the degree not the bread, carrots, and peas...LOL

I will say the Sophia Eng Comp II course is soooooooo much better than taking it at a university and having to do even more writing and read books. I keep telling myself that is the alternative. Yeah no thanks. Just keep plugging away.

I was familiar with the book too, that is also what made it easier to analyze and write an essay about. I like the book though, so maybe that makes a difference on how you like the course or not.

I think there is more writing in Sophia Eng I than II...I just have the last essay to write in II and I'm donezo.

Thankfully I took AP in high school so I have never had to deal with English Comp classes. I hate even the idea of taking them!

For all of your other woes, I agree with Lacedonia, I like StraighterLines format; I’m taking Algebra among other classes through them. This is the first time in my life I’ve ever had higher than a C in any math class. I know math is a weakness of mine so I do actually take notes and spend way more time than the average person here does on SL, but I’ve also just put my membership on pause a few times cause I got burnt out/life got in the way. Came back, reviewed my notes and kept going.

As far as procrastination advice, the way I do it, especially if you’re taking multiple classes at once, is dedicate one day to a certain class, then the next day to another class....just set yourself goals and then don’t go to bed until you’ve completed your weekly goal for that class. When I sit down, I throw on some music to jam to to keep me energized/motivated and just stick with it for as long as possible.

I’m technically technically 10 years in the making on a bachelors degree, so I know all about procrastination! Once you get going and see your progress, you’ll find you actually want to complete things.
