    | Would recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course because it challenges you on an intellectual level and requires a lot of "outside of the box" thinking which is very helpful when it comes to many other projects and life situations where you have to look at the bigger picture and dig deeper rather than just focusing on the surface level.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights of this course so far would be the lesson on essay writing. We learned more about what people actually wanted to see in essays and how AP graders grade.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    I would definitely say to keep up with the work and reading because it is very easy to fall behind. Do NOT procrastinate and wait until the last minute to do assignments or to read because it will not be beneficial

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this class because although it is a bit difficult for those who struggle with writing, by the end of the year one truly learns how to apply what is being learned. This class also helps understanding other AP classes. AP classes help many students pay less for college. One needs to be able to score a four or a five in the AP test to get credit in most colleges. If one does not know how to analyze a piece of literature or thoroughly explain one's evidence, it is nearly impossible to get a good score on the AP test. With this class one learns to analyze and explain our argument and it could be easily applied to other AP courses.

    Course highlights:

    On this class I learned how to take literature and analyze what I read. Before I would only look at surface level observations, but now I have the ability of taking a piece of literature and explaining important aspects that are hidden within the text. Very few people know how to take apart a book and find a meaning or theme and also be able to explain it with significant quotes. This class has given me and many others the opportunity of seeing much more than what the story says and that has truly helped in other AP classes. AP requires people to think deeply into the subject and I believe that AP language and composition is the class that does the best job in explaining how one should be thinking.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    I would tell future students to not procrastinate. This class requires a lot of reading and writing. If someone falls behind in their assignments it will be very difficult to get back on track. If one does not stay with the rhythm the teacher goes in, then it will be a pain because one cannot ask the instructor questions or get clarification on the assignment. Although the instructor does not hold the student's hand through the writing process, the teachers will look over their student's papers and the student's should therefore stay on track.

    Course Overview:

    The AP Language and Composition curriculum offered work, such as essays and readings, which furthered and honed my analyzation skills.

    By reading many excerpts, I picked up many potential examples and evidence that would help me in arguments.

    Hours per week:

    12+ hours

    Advice for students:

    Doing practice problems and essays for the AP test can boost confidence for the test, as well as exercise important skills.
