    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I gave the course four stars because the course itself is interesting and deepens one’s views of novels. The one star I did not give the course was because of the teacher.

    Course highlights:

    What I have gained so far from this course is an improved skill in analyzing books (and artwork in general) and also in my essay writing. If there is one thing Mr. Liles is really good at, it is improving his students’ writing abilities.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Go in with the mindset of having fun with the topics you’ll learn and the books you will read. It’s literature, it’s supposed to be down-to-earth and enjoyable. If you don’t go in with this mindset, you will despise the class.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Yes, I would recommend this course to someone that wants to challenge themselves and get credit for an AP class. Ms. Barzegar is a kind teacher that makes assignments achievable and wants to see students succeed. We do a lot of annotation, so be prepared to spend a lot of time working on that. There is also a lot of reading.

    Course highlights:

    I am becoming very skilled at annotations. I have enjoyed the reading that we do. To succeed on the tests, you have to be sure to read thoroughly. I enjoy that this class a challenge, but not so difficult or time consuming that I can't keep up. This class is setting me up to be a successful college student.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Make sure to stay up to date with your reading assignments. Don't try to take short cuts by reading summaries. You have to read carefully if you want to be successful on tests. Also, find a good study partner to work on annotations with. It's good to have someone to go through the pages and pages with while working and bounce ideas off of.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend taking this course because it is a great way to be exposed to a variety of great literature. It is a fun course if you love to read and learn about classic authors. It is a challenging class, however, as there is a decent amount of reading and writing, but if you love to read and can keep up with homework, it is definitely a course I would recommend taking.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights of this course were learning about Greek mythology and other cultured literature. Through reading works such as the Iliad and Dante's Inferno, I learned to have a better understanding of different culture's beliefs and views of the world. This enhanced my own understanding of the world, as it allowed me to have a more vast knowledge of belief systems.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Students considering this course should keep up with the homework, and not procrastinate reading the material. They should also look up terms they do not understand, as it will help them with their vocabulary skills and understanding of the material, as well as increasing their understanding of other books they may read. Vocabulary is also an important aspect of the AP test, and a broader knowledge of vocabulary words will aid them when taking the test.
