    | Would recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I really enjoyed taking a deeper look into novels. The underlying messages novels had were fun to discover and made me look for a deeper meaning of life.

    Course highlights:

    I learned to never look at the surface but look inside of it. I took the words and discovered a deeper meaning in the novels we read. We read a book called Sula by Toni Morrison. I found a deeper meaning of the friendship Sula and Nel had.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    I would recommend that students taking this course should not ready a book for what it is. Take the times and find the underlying messages and connect it to real life.

    | Probably wouldn’t recommend.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    Though the teacher is amazing as a person, and we did have assignments that helped, I don't feel like she did her job to prepare me for the AP Exam, let alone college English. She was busy with graduate school which I understand because we are all human, but we didn't do much. If you want to take AP Lit, take it, just know there will be a lot of self teaching.

    Course highlights:

    The biggest highlight of this course was the fact that we looked at different pieces of work through different lenses. The work we did was sparse but it was very thought-provoking.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    Make sure to take exceptional notes and do self teaching. Your biggest help is going to be your peers, yourself, and literature criticisms. Also read everything.

    | Would recommend.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course only if you really like writing and reading books or poetry. This course is basically all about poetry, books, and writing.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights of this course was to get better at reading and writing and become a better listener. I learned to write better & excel at reading poetry because I didn't like poetry at first. This course taught me to stay on track because it was constant homework & class work. I wish I would've learned to write better before taking this course because we didn't do too much of learning to write, we just went in and started writing & kind of learned to write better while writing so that's something you would want to know before coming into this course.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    My advice would be to stay focused and don't get sidetracked because once you get behind it's like you never catch up because it's constant new work. We never stay on one book or anything for more than 2 days.
