    | No strong feelings either way.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    Personally, this course was very challenging for me because over the summer it was required of every student to read 5 books selected by our teacher. This course has taught me time management along with learning to be more disciplined.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights of this course was being able to voice opinions on the books read and discuss common issues in the world today. We also compared common stereotypes that reflected on our characters while also staying relevant to the book and themes within the books.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Only take this course if you are going to take it serious. This is not a class to go into and slack off in. The tests are very challenging, but all the projects and papers are enjoyable as long as you enjoy reading and evaluating books. Also, this is not a class for you if you are not a student who will study and work hard for your grade. Although you do not get many assignments this is a challenging and high standard course.

    | Would recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course because I had the amazing opportunity to read fantastic literature and have deep conversations about the meaning of the book. I would also recommend the course because Mrs. Cass is an amazing teacher. She is passionate about teaching, and it's clear she cares about her students and wants us to learn as much as we can.

    Course highlights:

    Highlights of this course were definitely the class discussions. They were fun, energized, and when people disagreed, we recognized that literature can be interpreted in many ways.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    There is a lot of independent reading, a lot of writing, and a lot of memorizing vocab words. If that freaks you out, maybe don't take it.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    This class is great for college credit, but is very hard work. I do not recommend it if you do not like reading. It is a very insightful class and with hard work comes good grades. I recommend taking it if it is your only AP class you are taking.

    Course highlights:

    I love reading different books and Mrs. Cass' teaching personality. The learning environment is very calm and easy going. I also like that my teacher is willing to work with me before and after school to help me understand certain concepts. Applause to Mrs. Cass as she continues he legacy.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    To succeed, it is important to annotate books and actually read them (not just using sparknotes). The tests are based solely on plot and characters so if you do not understand the book, read it, take notes on what you don't understand, sparknote it, and then ask her in class the next day.
