    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    This English class is college-preparatory! With the reading and essays and constant analysis, you’ll be taught to churn ideas around in your head and really absorb a reading. In this class you take ownership of each word you write or say, making statements and thesis statements pack a powerful punch by way of expressing points. We investigate American authors and use their writings to shape an overall theme of what being American truly means. You will think more deeply by the end of this class and work hard on making it to deadlines quickly, as the real world is a fast place expecting quick and well-done work.

    Course highlights:

    Highlights of this course included speeches, TED talks, and poetry analysis. Through speeches, I was less afraid to talk in front of people and say what I thought about topics. Watching and analyzing TED talks done by professional speakers helped me to see that speeches should be natural, as they’re just like writing, a physical way to share ideas. And of course, poetry analysis was fun. It helped me to read between the lines and think of different possibilities to interpret the writing. Overall I learned to think more deeply, discuss with peers, and put my ideas out there without fear.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Be prepared to work hard, read a lot, speak a lot, and write a ton. This teacher has high expectations and looks for productivity, which is a great way to prepare you for college and the real world! Everything in this class is very realistic and requires effort to make good quality writing.
