    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    It's a great way to experience different forms of literature that have been long forgotten o considered not as important

    Course highlights:

    What I loved about the course was that the discussions over the literature were always open and all ideas were welcomed. The teacher encouraged us to explore all options and different paths when analysing different pieces of literature. He was also not afraid to teach use about literature that it oppressed which opened my eyes to problems that wee presented in the literature but also modern day times

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Be open to all ideas and different forms of literature. Also try nt to over think every detail of a story because somethings things are right in front of ones' eyes

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    AP language definitely opens one's eyes to the artistry in the world around them, and how language can affect the meaning of everything. Language teaches people to be empathetic towards each other, and it teaches the basis of expression through words. There isn't a better place to advance one's knowledge of rhetoric and of different linguistic styles than in this advanced place class. It is definitely a challenge, but writing essays will come incredibly easy by the end of the year and the payoff is amazing.

    Course highlights:

    Transcendentalism was one of my favorite topics to read about during this course, because it opened my mind to so many of the things I was always vaguely aware of but never literately conscious enough to grasp and question. We read a lot of Thoreau this year, and my favorite piece had to be Walden. This course definitely trained me through advanced literature, and deciphering the meaning of certain rhetorical skills. One of the lessons that stood out to me the most and virtually changed the way I read literature was pronoun reference. Who knew pronouns could define whether or not you understood a piece!

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    In order to succeed in AP Language, keep up with your course work 24/7! If you're given a piece to read or annotate, make sure you start as as soon as possible, and make sure you're consciously reading, and not just moving your eyes across a page! Always try to find meaning in every sentence, because Thoreau and Emerson probably spent a lot of time to make sure each sentence was there for a reason. Ask questions about everything, and find connections to daily life--life back in Emerson's day wasn't all too different from life right now, believe it or not. So constantly look for meaning.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Mrs. Robinson, now retired is the brightest soul you will ever meet. She love runs deep for literature and for the students. You become her family, and literature is your home together.

    Course highlights:

    Learning how to love yourself in the middle of your own battlefield

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Don't think that literature is stupid. Don't be stubborn. Learn to love the words on the paper as if they were the only thing left. Sometimes, they are.
