    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this to anyone who enjoys reading and had a love for good literature. Much of the course was analyzing different books and pieces of literature. The course taught me how to right essays with college expectations. We read and analyzed Hamlet and The Great Gatsby some of best books out there. This course definitely has high expectations but it gives you a form understanding of English before you go to college.

    Course highlights:

    Highlights of this course were definitely reading different pieces of literature, such as Hamlet which is a Shakespeare classic and The Great Gatsby. We also go to look into poetry which was one of my personal favorites. I learned how to truley analyze a piece of literature and poetry and to find hidden treasures in the words written.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    The most important thing to know by far is to know your literary terms. Literary terms are important to know for your essays, while reading, and most importantly for the AP test. Many of the unit tests on the books we were reading, were based on analyzing different passages and uderstanding the literary devices. Another important thing is to read! All your essays and tests are on different literary pieces so make sure you read what you are assigned.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This class opened my eyes to the world of english literature and how interesting it could be. Mr. Shields is one of the quirkiest, smart and interesting men I have ever met and he helped me overcome some of my struggles in writing.

    Course highlights:

    After taking this course, my writing skills have improved ten-fold. I have also learned so much about Shakespeare and other forms of english literature.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Make sure you read along in class and try your best to not miss class. The days I missed class, I always missed out on a fun activity or on reading and had to catch up. I've taken A hour classes all four years of high school and this was the only class I've ever wanted to wake up early for, it's awesome!
