    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    Mrs. Lofquist's AP Literature class requires significant focus, motivation, and diligence, but it is also rewarding and fascinating. Students read many books and after reading, take quizzes to test their knowledge, write essays, and take part in group discussions. Usually, high school seniors find required reading books to be boring and monotonous. However, students in Mrs. Lofquist's AP Literature are able to delve inside different fictional worlds and become immersed with the plots and their characters, as each novel read is both interesting and educationally helpful. Within my AP Literature class, there was not one book that I found difficult to develop interest for, and my peers seemed to feel the same way. With that, the quizzes were straightforward, the essays were almost fun to write, and the discussions were exciting and interesting. I recommend this class to any high school senior who wants to genuinely learn while actually enjoying it.

    Course highlights:

    The novels we read within the class were incredible. I found myself drawn to the plot of each story, and loved talking about what we read in class. Some of the novels we read included The Kite Runner, The Handmaid's Tale, Frankenstein, Wuthering Heights, and more. The fictional works were great reads and exposed students to classic literature, different historical genres, and a lot of vocabulary- all of which are useful for the AP test and college. Our homework was usually to read, and analyze a given book, which reflects many college English classes and improves ones reading and writing skills.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    To succeed, you need to actually read the assigned novels for the class. This requires good time-management, as there are specific dates that you need to read certain chapters by. If you aren't going to bother reading everything you need to, you are not going to do well in the class. In addition, you must be willing to put allocate a great amount of focus and hard work to everything that is assigned. To learn, you must read and analyze upon what you have read, and the assignments enable you to do that.
