    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Ms. Sullivan loves archetypes, themes, and symbolism probably more than any other aspects of English literature. She may delve a bit deeper than thought necessary into symbolism and how events metaphorically connect, but it helped me realize that there are countless amounts of ways to perceive the world. Make sure to stay positive like this. Keep up with dialectical journals and remember the symbols in the books you are reading. Also, she is extremely understanding with students who are honest about having a rough time getting work done; she'll absolutely work with you if you give her the chance.

    Course highlights:

    I really enjoyed the dialectical journals. Sure, they're annoying at first, but the more you do, the more extra credit. Also, it gave me an opportunity to express my confusion in certain parts of the books casually. I learned how to identify archetypes and absolutely loved the entry of psychological theories into her choices of class books, such as Maslow's Hierarchy of Needs and Freudian theories.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Dialectical journals!! Could not stress this enough. Get your homework done that night so you can ask her questions the next day if you have any. Also, keep your email handy. She answers back pretty quickly. Never pause from letting her know what you need in her class.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Mr. Simpson is an awesome teacher, who not only conveys the knowledge needed for the course in a cohesive way, but also does it in a fun way, that meets the needs of each individual student.

    Course highlights:

    The highlight of the course was reading One Hundred Years of Solitude by Gabriel Garcia Marquez. It is a gripping book, and Mr. Simpson goes through it thoroughly without making it too confusing to follow.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Read, read, read. Mr Simpson hands out small quizzes for each chapter, or set of chapters assigned - if you want to pass, READ THE BOOK
