    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Even if you've gone through high school getting credit from CP classes, this is a class that yes, will take up time but will also prepare you for the future. The teacher is passionate about what she is teaching, pushing you to open your mind to the deeper meaning of people's points of view regarding other societies. It is also a history class, and as IB you get background from all over the world. You are in small classes with kids who actually like to participate.

    Course highlights:

    For part of the IB Exam, if you decide to take it, you have an oral commentary. This taught me how to be confident when stating a case in front of authority, thus helping me in my job interview (I landed the job!). It also taught me how to review novels by forming my own opinion, even on the spot. Three of the books you will focus on include Slaughterhouse-Five, The Sound and the Fury, and Beloved. You explore tales of ghosts, freed slaves, mental disorders and wars.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    It is mostly writing, and you need to develop a basic understanding of how to form grammatically and formatted sentences before walking in. However, throughout the course you will have the opportunity to learn your own tone and style of writing.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course because Mrs. Bickford is an excellent teacher overall and provides a wealth of knowledge about the several ideas discussed in class, such as religion in 20th century Europe and Shakespeare.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights of this course was probably the discussion of the James Joyce collection, Dubliners. The short stories assigned were intriguing and provided insight of Ireland in the 20th century from multiple perspectives that I was highly unaware of.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Ask questions and get involved in the discussions in order to get the most out of the class.
