    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    This course teaches the craft of writing extremely, and is unbelievably valuable in preparing high school students for the writing pressures of college.

    Course highlights:

    The highlight of this course was seeing how well-written my last paper of the year was in comparison to the first one. I learned how to craft fluent sentences, how to make my writing flow, and how to use new vocabulary and crafting techniques to make my paper strong.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Be sure to take Mrs. Renaud's expert advice on how to craft a paper, because it is invaluable. Also, take good notes when reading a book, because they will help you comprehend what you read and be valuable when you write about the themes of the book.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This is a very good class for learning the basics of writing papers. Students are assigned papers in many different areas of writing such as creative, persuasive, and literary analysis papers. This class also includes a reading element; students are asked to read books and discuss them in literature circles with other students in the class. Last, there is a grammar portion of the course, teaching students proper English rules on things like commas and other sentence layouts.

    Course highlights:

    I learned how to write papers with proper format and proper grammar. I also learned how to make the thesis and points of my paper clear, providing a clear layout for my papers. By reading multiple books for my literature circle groups, everyone learned how to read a book and discuss it with others.

    Hours per week:

    12+ hours

    Advice for students:

    To succeed in this course, make sure that you have your reading done on time for your literature books. I would also recommend having your rough draft done in class on time because in class, the teacher has a lot of peer editing during class. A tip that I would give to students who don't feel confident in their writing yet is that it is very beneficial to take your rough draft to the teacher to have her look over it for you. She will tell you what you can work on and how to make it better, and you can then improve your paper before submitting your final draft.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    This course not only made me a better writer, but it prepared me for the difficult level of writing I will encounter in college. I really enjoyed learning about different writing techniques, whether it be sentence variation or crafting techniques. This course also taught me how to write papers diligently and efficiently while also being successful.

    Course highlights:

    I learned how to vary sentences throughout a paper, how to use crafting techniques creatively, I learned how to balance my papers with intellect and emotional support, I simply learned how to reveal my thoughts with passion and with impact, and I leaned how to analyze literature.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Do not procrastinate. Not only will this stress you out, but the work won't be as satisfactory or fun. If you take this course seriously, not only will you learn a ton for college, you will also have fun while doing it.
