    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this class because of how amazing the teacher was. Very easy to talk to even though many students are afraid and intimidated by her. She teaches with good techniques and always have you learning and doing something new. It might sound scary because of the two big letters "AP" in front of the title of the course but don't be scared! It's fairly easy! Just do your work and do NOT procrastinate. The books were also a great addition to the course because of how interesting they were. However, there were one or two that didn't get my attention but other than that it's alright.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights of the course were the books Lundeberg recommended and the techniques she taught. I learned how to analyze a story well and how to read in between the lines. I also learned in this class it's okay to be wrong and that everyone has their own theory and opinion when it comes to interpretation. This applies to the poems you learn in the class. Poems were a pain but I soon realized that there wasn't really a correct answer. It was based off of what YOU thought the poem was about and if you can back up your statement with evidence.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Do not procrastinate at all! I know how cliche that sounds but it's the truth. Procrastination will make you want to throw yourself off of a tall building when in this class. I'm guilty of this and I remember staying up all night finishing an essay and didn't get sleep at all. Also, do not use any sites to help you find the answer because Lundeberg loves to read new opinions on what you think as long as you back it up with evidence. She knows when people look up answers so I highly advise you to not do it. She might even give full credit if you provide good evidence because everyone sees things differently and you might be able to open her eyes to a new perspective.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    The highlights were when we saw the movie versions of the books we read.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Do not fall behind on the reading and only look for outside help after you have read for yourself so it does not influence your understanding.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    In this class, the students have to write many essays. It mostly consists of timed writes every Friday, but it is definitely worth it. It is great practice for the AP exam, and it really improves your writing. The teacher gives feedback on every essay written, so the students can learn what they did wrong and improve it for the next essay.

    Course highlights:

    From the many essays I wrote, I learned to analyze a piece of writing more thoroughly and connect it to the overall meaning. I learned how to properly structure a formal essay, and I learned how to have fun with writing. The highlight of this course for me was the final project. It was a collection of essays revolving around a single theme. It gives the students plenty of freedom to write about their interests and learn how to style their writings.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    Considering this course is heavy in writing, the students need to focus on their analysis and learn how to connect small aspects of a work to its greater meaning. There may be times where one's interpretation of something is different, but as long as they have plenty of evidence to support their claim, they will not be wrong.
