    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    You would teach yourself more things than the teacher teaching yourself

    Course highlights:

    I learned to be more open with a lot of topics that people do not want to talk about. I also learned that organization is the key.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    Always study in interval do not cram a lot of information in your mind at once because it stresses you out and stress WARNING is not the best. Instead, make study periods like 30-minute interval broken into 5 mins, make time and don't forget you're human, have fun.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend it to the many readers and writers out there. This class is full of analyzing text from many authors and if you really enjoy it then taking the AP Exam won't be a problem and you can get college credits with no problem as well.

    Course highlights:

    After taking this course one very important part of it would be the amount of vocabulary I've picked up. After reading and writing so much my vocabulary has expanded more than I anticipated! Surely if you want to enter the professional world taking this class is key to impress those in your future careers.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Don't take this class lightly, it's a rigorous course built to push your Literature and Composition skills to the limit. You cannot just simply write anything and expect a decent grade. You have to think well outside the box and use words that you may not have ever heard before. This is all to prepare you for the professional world and using the kind of language will surely be more than enough to get the ball rolling. Don't slack off and you'll do great.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Ms. Loftus is tough but her class teaches so much about literature and how the importance of the little details is significant. The students normally believe that they are just reading a regular story or novella, but in reality, all the actions and settings all are significant to the work as a whole. She's tough but the class is worth it!

    Course highlights:

    The highlights were probably the Socratic seminars on the novellas the class reads. There were so many terms and big ideas such as Marxism and the Oedipus effect. These terms and themes were the best because it sums up what the authors were trying to convey to the audience. I learned how to properly analyze literature and how to prepare a research-based essay on a theme and concept.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    STUDY! STUDY! STUDY! READ! Give the work in on time!
