    | Would highly recommend.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    This course teaches students how to analyze and use rhetorical devices to convey a strong message and make the audience feel how they want them to. In our highly political and media-centric society, I believe that this is an extremely important skill to learn and master as one can essentially move great masses of people with the right words and phrases. Not only that, but Mrs. Franklin finds ways to fit good literature and real-life situations into the curriculum in order to make the lessons stick with the students.

    Course highlights:

    In this course, I learned how to analyze speech and decipher how the speaker wants me to feel about what they are saying. I found this extremely helpful in today's political society and even harnessed enough skill to use the same techniques in my own speech and writing. This is a very good class to take if one wants to be more persuasive. Aside from the actual curriculum of the class, I also learned a lot about perspective and how today's society came to be what it is. The teacher is exceptionally passionate about creating students who are aware and informed about the world around them. I found it very interesting and extremely beneficial to look at the world through multiple different lenses and share my own opinions in our group discussions (which happen every day).

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    Students who wish to take this course need to be prepared to have their opinions challenged and expanded upon by both the teacher and other classmates. Not in any condescending or scolding way, but in ways that are meant to spark discussion and keep the students still thinking about the class once they leave the room. They also need to be aware that it is still and English course, so the reading and writing assignments are essential to doing well in the class, on the test, and later on in life. Definitely do not procrastinate and take the discussions seriously as you never know how another person views things. Make the most of it all.

    | Would recommend.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this class only if you love to analyze and interpret text. If you hate or you're not into it reading or analyzing, do not take this class whatsoever. You won't survive.

    Course highlights:

    The first thing I realized was that there was less laboring work (not a lot of answering questions like "who dies in tale of two cities" in complete sentence homework) but rather, more of the work was thinking and planning. Especially the research paper.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    As an AP student, it's your responsibility to take hold of your studies, the teacher will not tell you to study or review because you should be doing that in the first place.
