    | No strong feelings either way.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this class for somebody who plans to go to college more most subjects, because English is the base for most classes. The coursework isn't too bad for a college course, and so far it's going well.

    Course highlights:

    We read a lot of historic text, as well as study Victorian novels and such. We also study Shakespeare and other classic writers.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    You'll need to learn how to analyze text, and read older books.

    | Would recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend AP Literature because the class was far more than just reading a book, the class expanded on why the author wrote the novel/short story at certain time, what they were trying to express to there audience in this era. However being AP class it made me feel prepared for college for the teacher to did not hold our hand, like other classes they may do so, she made the class really think and expand about context in the novel and make our own connection.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights of being in an AP Literature class would be that we went deeper into context on novels and short stories. We learned about why authors wrote what they did, as well as went into deeper meaning usually about a social norms about what the author was trying to show the audience during this time period. Moreover being an AP class I learned how manage my time and be a more productive student.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    The advice I would give to students considering this course is that you have to be willing to put in time and dedication because it is an AP class and is preparing you for college, but alsoto be willing to expand your mind to for the greater concepts than your own.

    | No strong feelings either way.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this class because Ms. Humphrey preps you for the classes that you will be taking in college. There is a a lot of writing in this class; however, she is very peculiar on how she wants you to write.

    Course highlights:

    Throughout the year, Ms. Humphrey will refresh you on the skills that many tend to forget over the years. She will help you enhance your vocabulary as well as help you improve you grammar skills.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    There is a lot of reading in this class, so if you do not understand it, use Sparknotes or Shmoop to help you clarify the confusing points.
