    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I recommend this course because it teaches you to be able to read deeply and understand a work of literature more than you ever would before. Also! It's super easy as long as you're not lazy!

    Course highlights:

    The highlights of this course is reading "Slaughterhouse Five" by Kurt Vonnegut. It has easily become one of my favorite books and even changed the way I see the world and life thanks to this class and work.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    You MUST be willing to put time and effort into a work and have a hunger for knowledge and literature when you come to this class.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This course helps open your mind to various ways of thinking. It helps better understand why, throughout history and the world, some people go through social injustices. It encourages students to not just reflect on a work, but explore your own opinions and thoughts influenced by critically acclaimed novels.

    Course highlights:

    I loved reading Hamlet, which introduced Shakespeare's smartest character. His tragic flaw was the inability to act, which can be encouraging to students facing troubling times they don't know how to go about. Learning this novel gives you materials to compare and contrast between other IB English novels such as Slaughterhouse-Five and Dubliners.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Absolutely take it even if you aren't planning on taking the IB English exam. It teaches you how to analyze works which is a benefit of the other classes, and the work doesn't seem to be as much "busy work" that you would find in CP classes.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This course helps shape you into a more well rounded individual. You study literary works from around the world and from different centuries. You are free to state what you believe and what your opinion is. All points of view are welcome in the class. It is fun when you participate and you do your work.

    Course highlights:

    I enjoyed studying Dubliners by James Joyce. We were able to study nine out of the fifteen short stories and discuss all of the different opinions that people had. We talked about epiphanies and how this wonderful collection of short stories was put together to outline the life of a human being. It started with childhood and the stories that we studied were "The Sisters" and "Araby". It then moved into young adulthood with two other stories. Adulthood came next and then we ended with "The Dead", the final story in the book. It was amazing to read these stories and form my own opinions on what happened in the text.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Always stay on top of your work. Speak up in class and work hard. Do not fall behind and ask questions if you do not understand. The teacher is always happy to answer a question that you have.
