    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    6-8 hours

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this class because it offers students a challenge that not many other English classes seem to offer. It definitely forces the students to develop crucial critical thinking skills and it helps the students to become more well rounded as the course has the students read pieces of literature that would otherwise not be read by other English classes. While the class will be difficult and some would even say mentally scarring (jokingly of course), it is a class that you will not regret taking.

    Course highlights:

    1. I learned how to analyze pieces of literature in a more efficient and thorough manner. 2. I learned how to use literature in order to develop an argument and conduct research on that topic (Junior Paper). 3. I developed new testing skills that can be used in many other classes.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    Procrastination is not an option. The teachers are capable of telling if you completed the assignment at the last minute and they will grade you harshly. In addition, you need to do the extra work that they recommend as it will help you do well on the AP exam which could result with skipping a couple of college classes since you will already have the credits. (Many schools accept a score of 4 or higher on the exam in order to get college credit)

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    The class can be a grind sometimes, but the course material is fun and exciting. The teacher has so much knowledge to offer if you can ever get him to go on a tangent. Little homework besides reading or writing an essay. The essays are always assigned with so much prep-work that its a breeze.

    Course highlights:

    Reading the Great Gatsby was fun and exciting. Learning easier ways to write essays is great preparation for the AP exam.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    Read, read, read, read, read, and read some more....don't forget to read and after you read make sure to read and online summary just to make sure you got it all.
