    | Would recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this class to those who actually have a passion for reading and literature. When I was in this class many students were only taking it to have the weighted grade on the GPA. If you want to take this course do it out of your own wanting and not for external reasons such as your parents or friends pushing you towards it. This class really needs you to have the personal drive to truly succeed.

    Course highlights:

    I was able to learn about all the literary devices decently enough. It really helped me be prepared for my AP literature class that I took senior year.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    I would tell the students to actually prepare for the class before hand. To do their summer assignment and put in the time and effort into memorizing whatever needs to be memorized. A lot of the course work is built on your knowledge of the literary devices.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would definitely recommend taking this course if you love English. Personally I love to write and Ms.Montoy would make writing activities fun, whether if it involved art or even a good story. Not being the hugest fan in reading made me feel this class was going to be a struggle when I signed up. What helped me was how Ms.Montoy had a way of making reading and vocabulary ease out. I loved the class and highly recommend students to take it. Why not put yourself up for a little challenge, take the course!

    Course highlights:

    Vocabulary would be a highlight of mine for this course. Vocabulary has never been a strength of mine, but during this course I learned many words. The greatest highlight of this corse was the literary analysis. Whatever we read, discussed or even visualized, we broke it down and wrote about it. We analyzed it as a whole but didn't write a story on it, because that would defeat the purpose of the literary analysis. I learned that there's so much more to things once analyzed and it helps one get a better understanding in why things are worded in certain ways or why the author used a literary device right there instead of over there. Basically this class really opens ones eyes and helps one understand the real beauty and art in the english language.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    If you like english, don't even think about it, just take the course! It's a great class and the teachers are great too! It's not as difficult as it looks, it's almost like honors English (just with a little more effort).
