What's your favorite class at Flintridge Sacred Heart and why?

I'm currently taking Honors Scientific Research. It's a definite favorite of mine, not only because of the unique opportunity the class has given me to learn about the research process, but also because I've been able to choose to research a field I'm passionate about with the guidance and support of my peers and teacher. This class is allowing me to gain skills in lab techniques and comprehension of scientific literature, as well as collaboration and communication.
