    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course because of the determination of Mrs. Dailey. Her effort to prepare us for college, and more importantly, the real word, are so influential to our learning experience. Not only are we looking deeper into pieces of literature, but we are connecting the novels and finding the greater meaning through the use of TPCASST or SIFTS, which are great graphic organizers that help us decipher difficult texts. Again, I would recommend this course because the experience and outlook on our futures is unmatched as far as I'm concerned, and any student with a professional work ethic will excel in this class.

    Course highlights:

    A highlight from my time in this course would be reading The Kite Runner. In this novel which could easily be read and seen only on the surface, we took each chapter of the novel and went in depth to find the bigger picture of decisions of various characters. We also took into account the perspective of the story, and how the author may or may not want us to feel at certain points of the novel. It is easy to forget who is telling the story, but Mrs. Dailey reminding us that we have to take some things with a grain of salt and look deeper into others, allowed us to gain a better understanding of the novel. Now that I've developed these skills I've began using them in daily life, for instance, when I watch the news and look at the presidential candidates for example, I realize that they are usually speaking for the camera, and are just telling us what we want to hear. This is an example of a definitive quality that I gained in Mrs. Dailey's class.

    Hours per week:

    12+ hours

    Advice for students:

    To succeed in this course, you need to have a mindset that you will not get overwhelmed by the work. I will admit, I thought that the amount of work was a lot, but I never allowed myself to slack off or get behind. It is imperative to listen to Mrs. Dailey's lectures because her understanding on the novel is unmatched, and those specific insights may lead you to understand a new concept. Also there are times where Mrs. Dailey doesn't check the night's homework, but you should always do the homework because there are a lot of pop quizzes and the homework gets you prepared for them. The main thing is not to panic, and develop a calm yet intense work ethic, and don't stop until you reach your goal, in this class or anywhere in life.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this class because it really helped me exceed in mt English Language and writing skills. Because i took this class i saw a significant improvement in my writing skills. It also taught me that you cannot skip the reading no matter how long you look up the plot online. It seems to require much less effort to just do the reading.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights were the many interesting novels we had to read on our own schedule. I learned how to better manage my time because of this. I also learned how to write in a fast paced environment due to the AP prep practice tests that were taken weekly. I can now gather my thoughts in a timely manner, which makes taking tests less stressful.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    Actually reading the material makes everything so much easier and faster. Attempting to slip by with just an online source creates a difficult situation for remembering the material. Reading the material makes writing the essays go by much smoother and the tests are nothing to stress over, the essays are the hardest part and are graded the harshest.
