    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course, as it is provides a fresh new take on english and teaches all students how to analyze words and extract important messages from essays, books, articles, and more. The course is an overall appreciation for the English language and each facet of it.

    Course highlights:

    The main highlights of this course include learning important rhetorical terms, explicating and evaluating literary contexts, and analyzing authors and their writing styles used to capture their audiences. Overall, from these highlights learned in AP English 11, I've learned how to identify the main idea/point from essays and books and how to understand the author's words and explicate them to reveal important ideas.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    My number one advice for others interested in this course would be to stay on top of reading assignments. The main idea and goal of this course is to help students delve deeper when it comes to reading and to learn how to read and think critically within the English language. Future students should always read what is assigned in order to strengthen their AP skills and prepare for great future class discussions!

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    This is an amazing course where students go beyond mere reading comprehension and learn how to analyze literature. It teaches readers the components that make up a piece of literature, and the intricate ways in which an argument is conveyed.

    Course highlights:

    I learned about the various tools a writer uses when writing literature, including imagery, metonomy, and hyperbole. The highlight of the course was learning poetry; never before this class did I understand all the work that goes into writing poems. Authors think through every detail from meter to denotation to convey their arguments in a vivid, palatable fashion.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Get ready to stretch your mind. This is a difficult course, but it is also exciting. Do not expect to understand the material immediately; the class is designed to push you. Enjoy the ride, and keep pushing to write better and think better. Always be in communication with your teacher for helpful feedback to improve your skills and knowledge.
