    This class was tough.

    Participate in discussions- what you put it is what you get out of them. Most of the in-depth analysis will come from in-class discussions, which is extremely helpful if your essays.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    To be honest I did not initially want to take this course, but I am glad I did. It is a significant amount of work, but she does give you plenty of time to complete the assignments. It was the only class where I actually learned something that whole year.

    Course highlights:

    The actually writing for the course was easier than AP Lang. If you follow the prompt you will pass. As much as possible do not procrastinate. You will still be able to pass, but it will ruin you mentally. Ask for help if you need it. There are a lot of timed writes but do drastically help for test and future encounters. As well as the multiple choice on Mondays they do help overall.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Do your best to not procrastinate

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Although, this was a required course I still would recommend this course to underclassmen because it really challenges your abilities and skills when it comes to writing. My english teacher at the time did an amazing job at correcting my grammar and helping me think of new ways to re-write a sentence and because of that I appreciate the course so much.

    Course highlights:

    This course has given me the opportunity to learn a variety of ways to make my writing better. I gained more knowledge in using higher vocbaulary and not only that, but I am much more confident in structuring my paragraphs.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    In order to succeed in this specific course students should always ask the teacher for any type of feedback in regards to their writing assignments. As for studying, students should use flash cards to keep track of higher vocabulary and color coordinate their annotations within books or articles they read through the year. I would also recommend students to become strong in there literary elements that way they are able to use them in their essays to make their essays stronger.
