    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course because Mr. Smith was a great teacher and actually taught us how to write essays and analyze the books we read. His writing style really prepared us for the AP test.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights were when we read The Great Gatsby and the Crucible because Mr. Smith and the class made it a lot of fun and we did some outside research on the time period and authors so that we could really understand the books. This helped a lot on the AP test because we had a lot of background knowledge.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Make sure you keep an open mind about learning a new form of essay writing because it'll be different but you'll definitely use it in the future!

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I recommend this course because it teaches knowledge that students will use for the rest of their education and most likely even beyond this. This class teaches you valuable skills in critical reading and analysis that are crucial to understanding English writing. There is also a heavy focus on writing argument and rhetorical analysis papers which help improve one's writing skills.

    Course highlights:

    My favorite part of this course was how we put a focus on the author's intent in a work, rather than the plot. Instead of discussing surface level parts of a piece, we would analyze why the author uses the language and devices they do and how this is significant to the overall meaning of the work. We would also discuss historical context to the piece and why it is significant for that time period. In this class, I learned how to think beyond the story and see the bigger meaning in English works and given me a greater appreciation for them.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    In this course, students really need to put time into the reading assignments and trying to understand why they are significant. Analysis will become easier throughout the class, but it is important to understand the material for the writing assignments. Take practice AP tests before the real one on the College Board website; they help quite a bit.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Mr. Smith is the best teacher I've ever had. He works with everyone individually to build them up as students and people. Everything we learned was tied back to modern society.

    Course highlights:

    I learned how to write a really well developed and structured essay that's easy to follow. I also learned how to elaborate on my opinions in an eloquent way.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    Come with an intelligent opinion! We have a lot of class discussions, and he likes to see you participate. Also the class isn't a lot of work, but I recommend giving it your best, you'll come out a better person because of it.
