    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Jason Slatton truly enjoys Modernist American literature and discussing it with his students.

    Course highlights:

    Every time the class discussed. We would get off onto tangents, especially during a discussion of The Great Gatsby. We would debate the redeeming qualities of some characters, except for Tom Buchanan; he was horrid. We learned the pros and cons to the conventions used by modernist writers such as J.D. Salinger, Zora Neale Hurston, and Alice Walker such as starting in medias res and an emphasis on perspective.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Listen thoroughly, participate in the discussion, make sure to read the assigned pieces of work and if you are having difficulties with research paper, talk to Mr. Slatton. He will try to be available.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    If there's one class that students at Alabama School of Fine Arts recommend not taking, it's Ms. Abernathy's Brit Lit class. With hours of homework, difficult material, and a strict teacher, the warnings really come as no surprise. I would be lying if I said I wasn't scared, as I, like many others, find British Literature difficult to get through. However, by the end of the year, I had never enjoyed an english course more than I did Ms. Abernathy's. The work was hard, but she always gave you the information you needed for the test. She was strict, but Ms. Abernathy never tried to sabotage her students' grades. And the content might be boringl, but nothing felt as good as when she handed you back your 6-page test, and you saw a 92% scrawled across the top in red ink.

    Course highlights:

    I find British Literature boring, and, in the past, struggled to pay attention to the course material. However, Ms. Abernathy's English class was worth the hair loss. The course thoroughly taught me British theory, how to write coherent essays, text analysis, and how to think critically. By the end of only the first semester, I believed I had an in-depth understanding of the material, and could take on any other beast that came my way.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    Pay attention to discussion. Most of the tests and assignments come from discussion over the text. If you miss a class, it's often hard to bounce back because of the in-class discussion. The best thing you could do is take extremely thorough notes, and make friends. Studying is really just memorizing what she said during class, so make sure the notes you're studying from are accurate.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    Having a teacher who is knowledgable and passionate about their class always makes it fun. Even though the teacher is intimidating (which Ms. Abernathy definitely is) I feel comfortable speaking up because of the conversational/discussion setting.

    Course highlights:

    I enjoyed the personal stories and anecdotes that our teacher provided. She always made sure that each one of us spoke up as well, she made sure that we knew our opinions and views mattered, even if they were a little off.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Be ready to discuss Beowulf in depth, and Chaucer and Shakespeare and I hope you are ready for the monologue at the end of the year! It's in front of the whole class, but don't worry, everyone has to embarrass themselves so it's okay. By the end of the year you'll have been adopted into a very intellectual and sassy family.
