    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    AP English 11 teaches students how to analyze complex texts and think critically about big ideas through socratic seminars and group assignments. Students are able to not only improve on their reading skills but also on their writing skills as well.

    Course highlights:

    I learned how to cite evidence to support my reasoning, utilize many literary devices and strategies, and to logically organize my writing. I also learned how to break down complex literature through annotations which improved my reading skills.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    To succeed, you must do all the work that is assigned to you and put your effort into it. A good way to study is by researching and practice different writing strategies in your textbook which will allow you to incorporate your own into your writing.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course because the class was one of the most fun classes I've ever had. The teacher was always in a good mood, and the material isn't extremely hard either.

    Course highlights:

    The thing about this class is that you have to know yourself. There are going to be times where you don't exactly understand something, and that's when you can ask for help. But sometimes in English, there are questions that don't have an absolute answer. So you'll have to use your own best judgement for the situation at hand.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    Don't procrastinate. When the teacher assigns homework and makes it due a week from then, you'll procrastinate but it isn't unlikely that she would assign four or five more assignments in the interim. So do everything right away. There were at least 10 people in 0 period on the due date scrambling to copy everything and get it turned in by class time.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this class because it prepares you for college level writing and cultivates analytical reading and annotating skills.

    Course highlights:

    In this class, I learned how to properly use and identify rhetorical strategies along with other elements of style in order to enhance my writing. Throughout the duration of this course we read many novels which are considered great American literature such as "The Scarlet Letter" and "Grapes of Wrath" which gives students the abilty to connect, compare and contrast these esteemed works with ones which we may encounter in future courses.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    I would advise any students taking this class in the future to complete the summer homework even if you are having doubts because once you understand the basic layout of the AP test and what will be on it, it's a lot less stressful and daunting. Once the course begins I would recommend studying and becoming well versed in rhetorical strategies because it will help you a lot to be able to read a text and automatically be able to identify key rhetorical elements.
