    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    Mrs. Cooper is a profound impacting English teacher. Her thorough planning and concise teaching style has carried my aptitude for english far above anything I could imagine myself writing or reading. Her methods and passion in teaching us has greatly expanded my abilities concerning vocabulary, writing, and literary thinking. I love her style of teaching and feel lucky to have been able to have her all four years of my high school career.

    Course highlights:

    I love dissecting each work of literature we go through, Mrs. Cooper is wonderful in deepening our understanding of each novel. More than that, I love how she introduced current events and relevant issues such as politics and studies that have fascinated me. She has truly brought the world of english to life by guiding us to find our own interest to write and research about. One highlight form last year was an argumentative essay in which I researched and wrote about how music affects the brain.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Do Mrs. Cooper's homework well and thoroughly! Read books all the way through--it will be beneficial!

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    This class is important to further your writing and language skills; not only does it push timed writing, but it encourages you to learn how to interpret passages quickly, then apply real life circumstances to the passage in your essay. This course helped me realize I am interested in writing and literature as a future path.

    Course highlights:

    The best part of this course was the many writing assignments given. It encouraged and made me practice my rhetoric and interpretation skills, while I was also able to interpret passages and write on them. I loved taking apart certain passages and what they meant, then writing what I thought they might be pointing to.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    In order to succeed, you need to be able to let your thoughts flow freely. Much of this course involves writing, so being able to have good organizational and rhetoric skills is very important. Also, make a quizlet with all the important literary terms; this is very helpful on the AP Exam in both the multiple choice and essay portions.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I loved being able to improve my writing skills, while interpreting how other people write and argue. This course was encouraging as someone who is interested in creative writing in college. One thing I wish I knew was how hard it is to write if do't let your thoughts flow.

    Course highlights:

    Not only did this course further my timed writing abilities, but I was also able to debate with my class. By combining both of these fields, my argumentative skills were improved. I loved being able to interpret the meaning of passages, then use the skills I learned to write about it.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Make a quizlet for tough literary vocabulary words that are helpful to know on the AP Exam; (trope, verisimilatude, etc). Learn to let your ideas flow, while also having a structured plan when writing.
