    | Would highly recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    The English 4 course, which I am currently taking as a senior, has helped benefit me a lot, mostly because of the instructor who is teaching the course.

    Course highlights:

    I learned a lot about being able to misread a text, in order to find the true meaning behind the text. This has honestly been the highlight of this course for me because I have come to be able to understand a lot of things that I would have never been able to understand on my own, especially when it comes to Shakespear.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    If you want to advance and become better when it comes to literary things, then this course is highly recommeded by me. I think this course can be extremley helpful for those who want to go above and beyond education wise and are actually serious about their education.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend English 4.1 because it is required and it will give you insight on old English and the way of writing around the world.

    Course highlights:

    Right now we are studying Anglo-Saxons. I have learned that they are of the pagan belief and have a history of begin very violent overall. Beowulf is based on this.

    Hours per week:

    12+ hours

    Advice for students:

    Study and Pay attention. Make sure you put notes into your own words and make sure you have lots of questions if you do not understand.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this class because it is a mandatory class, but I also recommend this class because she honestly does prepares you for college. You may not realize it at the time, but trust me you will thank her in the end. She also teaches you to use logical skills. For example we may go over a story and you analyze it, you aren't going to get tested on that exact story necessarily, but you will be tested on the skill you learned in analyzing. Basically being tested on the concept. She also doesn't collect every homework assignment and by doing that she gives you control over how well you actually want your education. Which at first I thought, cool I never have to do my homework, but when I failed the test I realized what she was doing. Your education is what you make of it. Professors are not going to chase you down and force you to do your homework its up to you, to want to learn. As with every course there are a few cons. The only negative I have to say is that sometimes it takes her awhile to get grades in. But it's understandable when there are a lot of students.

    Course highlights:

    In this course I gained responsibility, honesty, better study habits, and taking my education in my own hands. I also learned to not over analyze everything in my personal and educational life. When the responsibility to learn is placed in your hands, it's a whole entire different ball game. You have to want to do well in order to do well. No one is going to force you. You can say that you did your homework no matter if you did it or not, but all teachers know If you were telling the truth when it comes time for the test. I learned how to study better, because with the given class time it was up to you, if you used it wisely. I slowly learned how valuable that in- class time was. Especially when questions aroused. I also learned not everything we read needed a deep analysis. Sometimes the message is very clear and it's not always a hidden internal message. That also made me reflect in my personal life as well. Not every situation I face is their always a need to overthink it.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    In order to succeed in English 4, do all homework that she gives you. There is always going to be that one questions(s) that appear that was on that homework that was not collected. Also read all the books that are given out and avoid using spark notes all the time, especially if you are using it because you didn't read the novel. Be prepared for class. Engage in class discussions, they really help you understand the material. TAKE NOTES!! it does not matter if she does not tell you to write it, but take notes they help you out a lot.
