    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this class because it helps a student learn how to write and read critically with dealing with non fiction. In addition, this class also taught me how important it is to have an open mind..

    Course highlights:

    The best part of this course were the discussions. I learned a lot about the world and it's views. It helped me see things a new lens. I also learned the importance of writing critically.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    To students wanting to take this course, my advice is read more and write more. When you do so, it's like exercise, you gain brain muscle and your skills sharpen.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    If you've been bored by the seemingly dull curriculum of lower-level English classes, or wished you could explore beyond the surface of light literary analysis, then AP Language and Comprehension will be an exciting and fresh class exploring the depths of analysis,how to write, how writers write, why they write, and the psychology behind literature in general.

    Course highlights:

    One of the main things I learned were how to really analyze a piece of text, which is an important skill for the AP Test and any standardized test in general. You'll be able to see things in works you've never seen before, and more importantly, think about how you analyze as a whole. Also, you'll develop strong essay-writing skills, since you'll be constantly building those skills either directly or indirectly through subjects like learning about the layers of essay questions or redefining the way you think about writing essays and formats for the better. In all, AP Language and Comprehension gets you to think differently about how you approach English, opening doors for new waves of understanding.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    First of all, be engaged in all aspects of the class. There will be group discussions, class discussions etc. that are extremely important to grow as a student of English, so just sitting there being a sponge instead of a student won't help you, even if you are attentive. Ask questions for the same reasons. Also, when homework is given, never complete it last minute, and even if this is common knowledge, it's even more important for a class like this. If you don't understand something, take it up with the teacher during lunch or before or after school- I'm sure they'd be more than happy to help. If you can, work on a penmanship that values speed while being at least a bit legible, since you're going to have to write fast in here.
