    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    Analyzing literary works is absolutely incredible. From Mary Shelley's Frankenstein to Shakespeare's Hamlet, analyzing the symbolism and overall theme of the work is thought-provoking and makes you crave more. Highly recommend because analytical skills are definitely sharpened here.

    Course highlights:

    Discussion of the symbolism of ANY literary work was tremendous fun. Reading a story is 100% different than studying a story. I learned that different themes are in a novel/novella and many stories are comments by the author on real life events.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    Take the time to study material throughly. Many things are symbols and have meaning. Take the time ponder and find the meaning to the symbols. Be active in group discussions not only will it make the class more interesting if students participate, but individually students learn more by being active in class.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    Mr. Mike Phillips is an incredible teacher that really connects the dots for a student on the significance of things in literature. Things that a typical reader would overlook is not brushed off with Mr. Phillips. In this class, you will become proficient in analyzing literature while simultaneously improving sentence structure and vocabulary. Highly recommend the course for all fields of study because analytical skills are attained and improved here.

    Course highlights:

    Reading novels and then finding the meaning in books such as Frankenstein and Brave New World. The discussion is led by the teacher but must be carried by the students. If this is done, students that previously did not like english will find a new life in it.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Keep up with the work. Take the time to thoroughly STUDY the material. There is little wiggle room for error but with constant work, the class will be enjoyable.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    The instructor is engaged and love what he does. Everything he teaches is for the better of his students so they can be well prepared in college. He is readily available for help.

    Course highlights:

    I have learned how to properly analyze literature to pick apart hidden messages or statements the author is trying to get across to the reader. I have learned much about Shakespeare also.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Listen to what the instructor tells you to do. Do not let yourself get left behind because you will feel lost in the discussion the following days. Always participate and aim for improvement.
