    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I would definitely recommend this course for anyone hoping to improve their rhetoric in writing and ability to communicate effectively through words. Not only does the professor do a wonderful job preparing you for the AP test in May, but prepares you for the SAT as well. The English section of the SAT and the new essay are almost carbon copies to the AP english exam, so you get to kill two birds with one stone.

    Course highlights:

    My writing thoroughly improved after a year of timed writes every Friday. We also had the opportunity to observe texts, speeches, and letters to observe the rhetorical strategies used. In addition, we read The Great Gatsby, the Sun Also Rises, Cats Cradle, and a Streetcar Named Desire.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    I would advise that you study all one hundred rhetorical devices given to you at the beginning of the year. These will come in handy through out the year during discussion and timed writes, not to mention the AP test. I also highly advise you do all the reading. This will expand your vocabulary, reading, writing, and spelling skills, all of which will come in handy during the AP exam.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Though Ms.Rauscher does not teach A.P. English Literature at Xavier anymore, I highly recommend taking the class. A.P. English Literature was my first advanced placement course and educated me about all of the great American authors, from Longfellow to Susan B. Anthony, this course covers it all!

    Course highlights:

    Being a young empowered women in a highly patricoachial country, I mostly benefited form the female authors. The highlight of this course for me was studying Edna St.Vincent Millay, Sojourner Truth, Susan B. Anthony, Emily Dickinson, and Elizabeth Cady Stanton.

    Hours per week:

    12+ hours

    Advice for students:

    In order to succeed, do the readings before every class period and don't slack off during class. Put your heart and soul into the enthralling in class discussions and be open to other perspectives. Also- always watch out for allusions and metaphorical language!
