    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Even though this class is the only IB English class available for juniors, I would still recommend it. There is a decent amount of work, but only the presentations and essays are actually difficult. Mr. De Luca forces you to pay attention to MLA formatting and small details you would normally forget. You also learn about annotating and literary devices, both of which will be helpful in college.

    Course highlights:

    At the end of the year, each student had to present a topic from one of the pieces of literature we read. I did "Art of the Essay", which allowed me to be creative with my topic. I ended up comparing the sport of basketball to the process of writing an essay. As I did my research, I began to understand writing more as I compared it to playing basketball, like the importance of a good conclusion. I also learned to manage my time, since the presentation was due around the same time as a lot of work from my other classes.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    The best way to succeed in this class is to stay caught up with the work. As the year goes on, the work starts to pile on, especially from other class as well. In terms of studying, just make sure to actually read the books and annotate, as much of the assignments and tests are based on the reading.
