    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    AP English Literature is an enriching course that opens the literary horizons of its students and prepares them for the sophisticated nature of English present in college. Mrs. Faith Grossi is highly experienced in the English department and is regarded for her talent and passion in teaching. Mrs. Grossi uses a hands-on interactive approach that captivates the students and enables them to achieve a score of 7 or above on the AP English Literature final exam. The course in itself includes a variety of classic novels ranging from Bronte's "Wuthering Heights" to Pulitzer prize-winning books such as Cormac McCarthy's "The Road". In-depth analyses of the stylistic elements in relation to the themes of short stories, poems, and novels equip each student with the tools and knowledge necessary, not only to acquire a score above the national percentile on the AP exam, but also to carry eloquent and insightful discussions with the rest of the world.

    Course highlights:

    The course's main objective is to expose its students to a variety of literature while teaching them to analyze the literary devices and stylistic elements of such work. There is something for everyone no matter the taste. The exposure is so vast that there is also so much to learn. I learned how to eloquently write a research paper and an analytical essay in 40 minutes and how to explore and see beneath the superficial analysis of most works.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    To succeed you must stay on top of the independent reading. The course load is not intense but there is a good amount of reading involved which is evident. Pace yourself when organizing and typing the research paper in order to edit it various times along. If effort is put into the course, a great harvest will be recieved.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    If you are highly interested in English, this class is a wonderful opportunity to improve on your writing skills and to learn nonfiction material that is beneficial to know. Even if English is not your best subject, fear not! Your teacher would give you the fundamentals that you will need to know for the AP exam and for the following senior class, AP Literature. I say this is an extremely important class in general though since it would make an impact in your knowledge of nonfiction and writing style.

    Course highlights:

    I learned grammatical and rhetorical terms that you will need to be familiar with in order to pass both the class and the exam. You will also learn about different types of essays and theses one could write and learn to be aware of the fallacies that you should avoid when writing your argument. In addition, you will be taught on how to distinguish the tone, atmosphere, and diction in the authors' works.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    This course requires a lot of reading and writing, so do not wait for the last minute in this class. Since there is many terms that you have to be familiar with, don't be afraid to ask your teacher for clarification. Also, know how to distinguish the difference between tone and atmosphere--- that is one of most common mistakes in the class. Remember that this class is also focused on your writing style to create an argument, not on how much background knowledge you know you can list. If you are taking APUSH, try not to confuse how to write a history paper and a english paper, they are different.
