    | Probably wouldn’t recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    The only reason I would not recommend this course is because it is not guaranteed college credit. I really enjoyed the course and the teacher but it is a large work load and I do not suggest taking it with other AP course on one's plate. English 101 and 102 would be a more practical course to take as a high school senior because passing the course (and paying for it) will result in college credit. I received a 3 on the AP exam (which is passing) but the college did not award me credit for it.

    Course highlights:

    I learned quite a bit about how to read and understand that writing is a true art, and more than just storytelling. I learned how to read deeper and pick up on all the symbolism and metaphor within a work. Authors do not just come out and say exactly what they mean, you have to work for it to understand what they are truly trying to say. I felt that I was very prepared for the exam and Metcalf did an excellent job on giving us testing materials and practice exams so we knew what to expect. I felt the most prepared for this AP exam and yet I just got a 3 so I do not know if it was that effective.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Stay on top of the assignments and get to know the people in your class so that you can help each other. It is going to be hard sometimes but it is not impossible. This course will really challenge you to do some deeper thinking because the answer is not always in plain sight and is sometimes subjective. Get to know Metcalf and communicate her, she appreciates you telling her that you had a lot going on and did not finish an assignment rather than finding out you copied or cheated. She will most likely cut you some slack if you just talk to her, especially before things are due. She wants you to succeed.

    | Would highly recommend.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course because I learned how to input a lot more vocabulary words and styling techniques into my writing. I also now know how to find the underlying meaning of the passage.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights of this course were the group activities. There was a lot of collaborative learning that went on which was much better than lectures. I also enjoyed the many different genres of novels we read together as a class and individually.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    If I would give any advice it would be to read ALL material. This includes the textbook material and the novels. Also, be caught up because there is nothing worse than being called on in class and not knowing anything that is going on. Also, be prepared for pop quizzes any day of the week.
