    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Mr. Chaney makes the course so much more fun than it actually is. It's also a classroom, where the teacher is literally your best friend and cares for you individually. He nicknames everyone and encourages the students to speak up and suggest new topics, or ways of study that interest them.

    Course highlights:

    We get to learn several things about the American history behind the novels we read with fun games and interesting collaborations. We learn about how culture also affected the novels.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Make sure that you're willing to finish what you have the day you get it. This course requires that you work a little bit (about 15 minutes) every night, so don't try to ignore an assignment that's due next week, because you will most likely get more homework the next day. So instead of 15 minutes, you'll have yourself work 30 minutes.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would highly recommend this course. I learned beyond the information of American Lit. I was about to write a resumé and strengthen my writing. Mr.Chaney is a teacher dedicated to helping you outside of class and in the real world.

    Course highlights:

    I learned what to put in a resumé (any hobbies you have or leadership skills you have obtained). Also learned how to strengthen my writing, which included citing sources.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    You need to complete your homework assigments with as much effort at possible. Always read over your essays out loud to yourself two times before considering it finished.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    American literature comprises of the language and history of America, and it teaches us about our society. It's a very fun and interactive course if you're teacher is more of a group discussion/Socratic seminar type. It will help you learn new words and teach new skills.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights of the course were all the class discussions we had on every chapter of every book we read. We read the Crucible, which was very exciting for me since we also performed it for drama. American Literature goes hand in hand to almost any other course out there, so it's a great supplement to take!

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    In order to succeed, you will need some decent work habits, a positive can-do attitude, and a respectful aura when you come to class. Everything in the course is pretty basic and there is nothing really challenging if you conserve your time properly.
