    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    This course focused on rhetoric and other aspects of literature and composition. You analyze the meanings of several texts, and explore deeper into the writing than just the setting and purpose of the writing. This course isn't one that you can just slide by on. It takes a lot of hard work and determination. You have to be fully committed to learning AP Lit.

    Course highlights:

    We read a variety of book on a variety of topics, and had in depth discussions on meaning/rhetoric. This class takes you in further, and looks at the background/inner workings of these texts.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    You have to fully committed and put 110% into all work.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course because it is taught by an amazing teacher who brings deep thought and amazing work out of her students by setting high expectations while not being fear-inducing. This class teaches how to analyze and construct a persuasive argument. I feel that this class really equips students for both college and the real world.

    Course highlights:

    The highlight of this course were the argumentative essays and the on-demand essays we had to do for class. These were graded closely and required a lot of thought and energy. I learned not to procrastinate, and how to construct a cohesive argument quickly and efficiently.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    Make sure not to slack off, and always turn your work in on time. You get out of this course as much as you put into it. Try your best on every single assignment so that you can learn and grow as much as possible throughout the course of this class. The teacher will be more than willing to give you help and advice, so be sure to capitalize on that as well.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    The content of the class was designed to expand the minds of young writers, but the teacher made it easier by helping the student build a bridge between what they thought they could do and what they learned they could do.

    Course highlights:

    This course taught me specifically how to write with a more mature tone, and showed me what it actually takes to write an effective work.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Have the ability to fail-- do not be discouraged easily when it doesn't come naturally as you would like it. The coursework is not the hard part of this class-- this class is difficult because your mind is being opened and stretched, and growth, in all facets, often happens the quickest when we experience growing pains.
