    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I really enjoy learning about various philosophies and examining different writing styles. Also, Ms. Leaney, at Long Beach Polytechnic High School,is a great teacher! I highly recommend this class!

    Course highlights:

    I really enjoyed learning about various criticisms such as: feminism, psychoanalytic, and marxist theories, because I enjoy hearing about various perspectives on life. These topics are also quite interesting in regards to the political turmoil today.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    To do well in this course, it is very important to read the material. Not only will there be quizzes on the material, but Ms. Leaney really recommends it as well. Also, reading the material will allow you to be interested and active in class discussions. The novels, plays, and poems in this class were all AMAZING!

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course, but only to serious students who are good writers and want to get better. Also, I would recommend this course because it is challenging and will definitely prepare one for a college course in English Literature.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights would have to be the inclusiveness of the class as a whole. The environment was friendly and easy to ask questions in. But I mostly enjoyed how much my writing improved like how to use different rhetorical devices and dissecting poetry.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Do not get behind. Make sure there is someone in the class you can study with and count on for group assignments. Always do the reading when assigned because playing catching up is not fun at all.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I reccomend this course because it teaches us alot about the world of literature. Also because everything you read is fiction you are able to use your imagination to try and figure out what the poem or short story is about. Since there is no set topic on what it is about, each student is able to interpret it their own way.

    Course highlights:

    Reading different poems and short stories. I learned how to interpret poems and short stories, also how to read between the lines to try and understand the bigger picture.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    DO NOT PROCRASTINATE, do your work as you get it, read carefully, take plenty of notes, pay attention to everything the teacher says because sometimes they will drop important hints
